The backsides of panels are stripped and sanded in preparation for a black Axalta epoxy primer and Imron topcoat.

The outside panels were all sanded to a 180 grit surface. The body tub was then rolled back into the paint booth and masked for another coat of high build primer.

The crew left the dashboard and firewall exposed to receive primer for sanding, and anywhere the crew sanded through the primer to bare steel, another epoxy coat was applied for corrosion protection.



After the epoxy had cured, a fresh coat of Axalta high build primer was applied.

Once the primer dried, a layer of guide coat was applied to all the exterior surfaces to make the next rounds of block sanding easier and more effective.



The door jams, dashboard, and firewall were all treated to the guide coat.



Here, the guide coat is being sanded off in a wetsanding operation. The guide coat makes it easy to reveal high and low spots, and also lets the technician know what areas have been sanded.
