Prep For Paint

Camaro in bodyshop. Drivers door.

The metalwork may be finished, but the bodywork continues. Before it can go to paint all the imperfections in the body have to be filled and sanded to perfection.

Hood. Tony works on fender

Tony applies a thin coat of filler to the right fender. Once sanded, this filler will help the paint adhere to the body.

Once at the paint shop the body is taken back off of the chassis and put on a rotisserie for some final prep and cleaning work before painting.
