My first Kandy Paint-job 1970 impala

These were the beginning steps. It was stripped of most of the bumpers and misc stuff. Then started the big load of body-work.







The sexiest wheel wells iv ever seen..






The black stuff is guide coat for just seeing the lows and stuff.

The horizontal panels were somewhat straight.. The others were terrible though.





The trip was there was soooo much old paint on that car.. In some areas I just grinded and blocked it flat with some 80 grit and some panels would come out flat.

I finally found a hell of a nice glaze that sands like a glaze should. Its called evercoat spot-lite. THe stuff sands out smooth....... You aint gotta wait so long for it to dry either.

I filled all the holes the trim was supposed to go on. I tapped tthe holes down with a body hammer. THen I sanded them with 40 grit. THen after that I Kitty-haired / bondod / glazed.







The gangster cars in the background.

NOW we are back to the paint-job in some sealer and some paint.


We used a cream tan tow with a silver bottom.




After we sprayed the top we masked it.

The 1st coat of kandy I dusted on... Now I know better... I think I found that .. If you spray the kandy like a clear but a tad bit less heavier it sprays alot more even.



The bad thing is my harbor freight paint gun was spraying heavy at the tops and bottoms.

So I busted out my old gun in an attempt to fix it.

I started spraying more heavy and uniform.
