Basecoat Clearcoat Paint

 Christopher choose dark gray with black Shelby strips. We built a booth in the backyard and shot car in stages. 
  • 2 coats of epoxy primer
  • 3 coats of high build primer
  • 1 coat of epoxy sealer
  • 2 coats of black  base on the stripe areas
  • 3 coats of gray  base
  • 4 coats of clear coat

Some orange peel but it should smooth out with cut and buff and polish.

     Woooo Hooooo!!!
