The panels and the body shell are all unmasked and cleaned, and the primer is sanded again in preparation for Axalta Chromax basecoat and then clear. Everything was sanded to 600 grit, and then everything is cleaned with wax & grease remover.

3M sandpaper is used in a “wet” fashion to minimize scratching and potential damage. Wet sanding also reduces paper clogging and increases its lifespan.

Once wetsanded and cleaned, the body shell is rolled into the paint booth. The next step is to mask it and add color to the door and under hood jambs. A few exterior areas will be spot-primed before color, but the jambs are ready.
