Soon, it was time to spray the color!





The Cromax base coat “flashes” and dulls, awaiting additional coats and eventually clear.

After the appropriate drying time had passed, Jeff sprayed the clear and the shine began to emerge.









The stark contrast between the satin Imron black and the glossy Summit White became apparent once the masking was removed.

Next, the the outside of the decklid and hood were prepped and the backsides masked for color.





More parts were also readied for paint, like the grille surround, rear wing, fender extension, and cowl screen.





Careful masking is done to ensure crisp edges.





These parts then all received the same color / clear treatment as the body.

The inner fenders were bodyworked where needed and recoated in epoxy and then satin black Imron.

After some cure time, the exterior body panels were wet-sanded to remove any surface texture or possible impurities in the clear. The process starts with 800 grit and goes all the way to 5000 grit before polishing is done.





The body shell was also wet sanded with blocks to flatten the surface.




The decklid was installed in preparation for the stripe layout. The stripes are a standard GM Z/28 stripe, and we used the original GM assembly manual for the layout specs. The only difference will be a red outlining pinstripe around the black main stripes rather than have them all be one color.

We like to use FBS stripe tape for these layouts, as they come in various widths and usages.. Some are more flexible for tight corners, some are more rigid for long, straight lines without “hourglassing” or stretching and creating distorted lines.









Note that the car must be re-masked for the stripe application process.
