That looks so rad in satin! Bit of an off the wall question; how is that floor holding up?

The paint booth floor is holding up well. We coated it a few years ago and the coating is doing great, but it's been added to quite a bit with additional coats of epoxy and such from spraying cars. However, when we clean the booth floor and pressure wash it, the original coating shows no sign of letting go.

After the basecoat had “flashed off” or dried the required time period, Jeff brewed up a mix of Standox clear to add some shine to the ‘66 7-Litre! The satin looked cool, but man, this car is going to be a stunner!







This shot uses a flash and ambient light to show off the sparkly colors in the Emberglo paint recipe.



Jeff uses a SATA spray gun and 20+ years of experience to achieve these results “right out of the gun”, before any wet sanding or buffing is done. The whole V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew is to be recognized for paying attention to detail and maintaining quality levels from bare steel all the way up to final clear, as that’s what it takes to make ‘em nice!

Kevin, I just read this entire thread on a 3 hour ride to Connecticut. Saying I'm impressed is a massive understatement. Just. Wow! Incredible artistry in your shop. Like your paint artist, all of the paint Nick Serwo lays down looks just like that out of the gun also. It boggles the mind at the talent it takes to lay a finish like that right out of the gun. I want to see this Galaxie in the sun after it is wet sanded flat and buffed. It will literally GLOW! Nice work budski.

Thanks for the kind words, Yards! The crew does a heck of a job on these cars. It really stands tall in the sun, you'll see soon! Thanks again!

The crew unmasked the car and rolled it outside to get some sunshine.
