The Build – Painting the body panels

In the latest episode of American Modern Insurance Group’s The Build, the car has been sanded and the team is applying primer to the outside of the body of Ami G. (Named after after American Modern Insurance Group)

So now it’s time to get all of the edges on all of the body panels primed and ready to be painted in order for the restomod to be reassembled. The team will begin by painting the body panels silver.

They need to cut and paint in the body panels that are getting bolted onto the main body. So they’ll start by painting the silver first, then come back and paint the blue.

After painting silver and cutting in all the parts, they’ll continue by painting what needs to be blue and cutting them in from that point.

Taking the fine line across the body panels and cutting the blue line to split the line between the silver and the blue, the American Modern team will apply the blue paint before they finalize the clear coat between the two panels.
