This body is almost ready to be picked up & installed back on the chassis. This picture is taken at the body shop we contract to paint all our cars. What you are looking at is a Duponte Epoxy Sealer / Primer. This takes the place of using spot puddy. They still have to paint the body under the hood & trunk as well as the inside of the hood & trunk lid as you can see in the next pictures. They call this "cutting it in".
Our process of body work & paint is in two parts.
First part: we do all the work we can on the body (like fitting the lights, wiper motor etc) and then we take it to the body shop. We have the bodywork done and the painting of the engine compartment, trunk compartment & under the hood and trunk lids done with the body off. We had already removed the body from the frame as soon as we started building this car.
Second part, we finish building the car then take it back to the body shop for final paint.
Notice the totally computerized paint both they use. It controls the temperature and volume of air while painting and the timing for the varying temperatures for the baking / drying process. Using this high quality paint booth minimizes the dust and touch up sanding / polishing later. We will not farm out any paint job to someone who does not have at least this good of a paint booth because it would mean more labor for them to wet sand & polish and a lot more money they would have to charge us @ $60 per hour.
