Completed my Corvette Z06 *PICS*

Had to go to work before I could post it. I hope to take pictures outside tomorrow.

A few tricky things with it. I'm fine with it, but could be happier.

Cobra Colors Atomic Orange. Flocked interior. Basic box stock build.

At least when I do my regular Corvette I'll know what to look for.

Couple of more pictures of the car can be seen at MY FOTKI

Will take more pics tomorrow!

After seeing the pictures blown up on my computer I have a few more touch-ups that will make me happier. But it is done. On to the next one.

Very Well done. Cool color.

How much body prep did you need to do? it looks quite smooth. Mine appears to require a little body sanding

Thanks guys! I appreciate the comments. I fixed a few flaws I saw after picture taking so it looks much better now.

As for the questions.

Prep work on the body, as Ismael says, is very vital to get the smoothest best looking paint job you can get. It starts with the plastic itself. I sand all mold lines and seams if any. Fill spots and prime. Once primed I usually wet sand with 1500 grit or so. Look for more imperfections and re-coat as needed with wet sanding each time.

Once I get some color misted on I will wet sand that as well and leave the final color coat as is unless something is in the paint. Then mist on clear, wet sand. Final coats of clear get the wet sanding and rubbing. Paint jobs usually take me a good week to do. One day spent on rubbing and polishing alone.

As for the paint itself, yes that is a Factory GM color. Atomic Orange. I used Cobra Colors for that. Scalefinishes also produces this color.

Again, Thank You!

So Chris you didn't do anything to "seal" the body from the lacquer?

Len, that is correct. Just used plasti-kote t-237 with no adverse effects.
