Media blasting removes all the old paint and rust, and also most of the original seam sealer. After we picked out the remaining old caulk, Randy masked the bottom of the S71 and brushed in a 3M body seam sealer to reseal the panels.
We had our 1965 Chevelle SS frame media blasted and stripped clean, and then it was time to give it a new protective coating. This time, we utilized the new Extreme Chassis Black Epoxy paint from Eastwood. We found it to have an accurate satin appearance, and it seems to have the guts to stand up to the road.
After spending time reinforcing the GTO's chassis, we shot it with a new paint system from Eastwood. The base started off with their high-build 2-part catalyzed Epoxy Primer, and then we topcoated it with their new Ceramic Chassis Black in the satin finish. We used a 3-gun DeVilbiss Startingline HVLP spray gun set to lay down the chemicals, and the look is outstanding. The Ceramic Chassis Black also has a very high chemical and chip resistance, so the look should last for a long time!
