The Build – Painting the 1965 Chevy Malibu

Our experienced staff of collector car specialists at American Modern have sanded and primed the body of the 1965 Chevy Malibu, and now begin to paint her blue and silver.

The Build team is getting ready to paint the blue, including the body, jams, windshield surround, the dash, and anything else that’s going to be blue on the inside of the car. As you can see from the fluid up-and-down motion from Rob Baker, it is very important to stay at one frequency when painting the body of the vehicle.

Rob back tapes the line so the paint doesn’t bleed. The tape separates the silver from the underside of the body and the door jams from the blue on the top. The tape will provide a better view of what it will look like with a stripe and provide a gauge for the different colors.

Now that Rick Drewry, Rick Hardbarger and Rob Baker have cut in the blue and masked it off, they are preparing to paint the silver and cut in the jams. After that, they’ll be ready for the clear coat.
