1957 Chevy - Extreme Makeover Live Broadcast - Thursday 11/15

1957 Chevy - Extreme Makeover - Single Stage Paint

Live Broadcast starts at 6:00pm

Single Stage Paint
Tim has a incredibly nice 1957 Chevy, in these pictures it actually looks pretty good but don't be fooled...

Here's what the paint really looks like everywhere throughout the body panesl...

Thin Paint
Tim's 1957 Chevy has a single stage paint job and when I measured the paint thickness using the DeFelsko Paint Thickness Gage, (a very accurate 3% gage), it measured between 2.5 mils and 3.5 mils.

That's right, the paint is very thin. While we can't do a lot to it... we can do a little... and Tim's been helping us out with our Thursday Night project cars and learning the art of polishing paint. Not only can he create a work of art but he knows how to keep it looking that way...

The live broadcast will start Thursday, November 15th at 6:00 PM EST. Follow the link at the beginning of this thread for more information.
