Finishing color sanding
Here you can see the body is almost done. Fenders are still in the middle of color sanding. The color sanding and buffing of a car is detailed work that takes hours and hours. This process gives a car the ultra glass, show car finish. However, it does not come without an additional price tag due to all the extra time and care.

Painting the dash & some parts
In this stage black sealer was used as the first step. Black colored sealer is used when the paint color is a deep blue like this car has. Here you can see the black sealer then the color sprayed on the parts. Beautiful sparkly blue color, this car is going to look amazing when we're done.
