2006 Chevrolet SSR Paint Job

 

Now that's a good looking SSR! The two-tone combo is outstanding!


Not long ago we had a large group of SSR club members have their retro throwback cars custom painted here at the shop, this one is one of our favorites.

Finished with an original 1953 Chevy 3100 fenders, hood bumpers and more. As part of this mod we painted this SSR in "Ocean Green", one of the colors available back in '53.

Proper re-paint requires some disassembly. Simply masking, doing minimal prep work and spraying just doesn't cut it if you was a good looking paint job that will last. So we begin by removing most of the body panels and trim. This allows individual pieces to be properly prepped and painted and avoids those ugly over-sprays and masking lines which are the hallmark of cheap paint work.Each piece is thoroughly prepped before it goes into our temperature controlled paint booth.Once painted, the pieces are color-sanded with ultra-fine grit sandpaper to smooth the paints surface before clear-coat is applied. The final step is to buff everything out and start putting it all back together.
