Body and Paint

We have a number of projects now heading for the body and paint stage.  Not as simple a step as it is sometimes thought to be especially if you watch some of those TV shows where the car is magically done is one week.  A good final product in this stage simply requires a lot of skilled labor to prepare.  The metal must be replaced, shaped, and finished.  Then the metal surfaces must be worked smooth to produce a very smooth and straight foundation for paint.  Keeping in mind the control of all the joints, door gaps and correct fit of body panels.  None of which you want to be dealing with after the paint is on it.  A good deal of fun however, as this stage easily produces the biggest change in the car as it transforms from what it was to the finished and restored car.
