Herron Custom Paint

Back
Its as far as we can go until we get more parts. Its off to the mechanic for some final touches.I will update these photos as soon as the car is completely finished.  
This was a complete restoration on this car. It was tore completely down, stripped, blasted, bodyworked and painted inside and out top to bottom.All Dupont products were used on this job except for the PPG black on the hood. 
This is as far as we can go for now. We have no grill! A new one is on national backorder for who knows how long.  Some other parts are causing a holdup also. Thats common when doing these cars. 
The black on the hood PPG Duracryl DDL-9355. That is the original flat textured finish that was used on these cars. The red is Dupont Chromabase paint code is 4741K red. Is is a match to the original Laquer that was used in 69. 
There was a total of 889.75 hours in this job from start to finish. That does not count the mechanics labor or any interior work. That is just our labor here at HCP. 
Again once the car is completely finished I will update these photos.  
It had some rust issues but nothing out of the ordinary. It still has all the original floors except for the trunk. The 1/4 pnls and outer tubs and rockers were replaced.  
The car was done in Dupont Variprime, Uroprimer, Chromapremier sealer, chromabase paint and Hot Hues 5100 clear. Then it was sanded and polished to a glass finish. This is one nice old roadrunner. 
It still needs the airgrabber under the hood, interior, grill, some lights,lock cylinders, some dash pieces, tires and wheels, and a couple of the emblems and roadrunner decals. It is missing the two chrome strips that go on the tops of the doors. If anyone has them contact me. 

This is what it looked like before we started on it. I will show some of the in progress pictures.

 
The front frame rails, firewall, radiator support, rt & lf door hinge pillars and rt & lf fender aprons have been sandblasted inside and out.  
The complete bottom of the car was sandblasted.  
The bodywork is done on the right door. It is ready to prime.  
This is the bodywork on the right 1/4 panel and rocker.  
The left side of the body after 4 coats of Uro primer.  
The body has been primed up again after blocking. It is getting really close to being ready to paint.  
The front frame rails, engine bay, door pillars, firewall, and radiator support are painted.  
Since red is usually pretty transparent I sprayed 5 coats of the base color. The base is Dupont Chromabase. After the base I sprayed on 5 coats of Dupont Hot Hues 5100 clear.  

Here I am buffing the car out.

 
You see, lately, we have been doing a lot of research on this type of fake rolex sale and thought that we could share some of that knowledge with you. First of all, do you know where the replica watches sale term chronograph comes from? It comes from two Greex expressions. You have the two words replica watches uk and "graphos." In Greek, the word chromos means an interval of time and the word graphos means to replica watches uk. Just by knowing those words, we are sure you know what a chronograph rolex replica is. Either way you go, there is no denying that these small devices have become very popular in the world that we live in today. It is said that the rolex replica uk was invented during the year 1821 by Russak, who was a French master. It may have display that is digital, analogue or both.
