Chris sent me a few photos now that he’s gotten started. (There were a few weeks around Christmas when he was still getting his new paint shop operational.).
HI David. 90% of the aluminum prep is done. You can see the difference between the virgin aluminum and what has been treated. This process provides mechanical adhesion that along with the chemical bond will provide the best possible bond for your paint job.
Progress will go quickly from here out. Prep is the time consuming part.
He’s planning on shooting on the primer, and then the base coat (beige) and having me come up to look at sketches and do detail decisions on where to place the red (predominately on the leading edges) and black accent paint.
