55 Chevrolet Belair

Chris and Kaye’s 55 Chevrolet Belair is painted and reassembled and ready for delivery. It has been a big panel and paint project involving a full strip to bare metal, which exposed a very poor previous restoration attempt.

Dash and interior have been stripped and resprayed in the customers own shade of yellow and every body panel removed and paint stripped. The engine bay, door edges and outer panels were all epoxy primed and sealed before some minor rust and general damage and old repairs rectified. The body was then fully sprayed with Polyester spray filler and hand blocked, 2 pak primed and sprayed in white 2k to “base up” for the yellow final colour. This first colour coat also makes it easier to see any imperfections which can then be addressed again before the final top coat is applied.

The final Yellow/White 2 tone colour combination looks great and very original and clean.

Thanks to Roy and Steve, (2 of my very qualified painters) for their tireless efforts and helping to deliver such a great result and high standard.

Thanks for trusting us with your project Chris and Kaye and happy motoring.
