Custom car paint is one of Precision Restorations specialties!  Quality body and paint work has a large impact on how your car is perceived by both car show judges and car enthusiasts everywhere. A showcar finish requires flawless bodywork, panel alignment, a high-quality primer/sealer and high build primer, endless block sanding and a consistent base coat, clear coat spray job. For this classic car restoration installment we are working on a 1948 Nash Ambassador.

We stripped the original paint down to bare metal and began restoring the body of this Nash.  Once repaired we sealed it with a high grade primer.  Dan then block sanded the body to make sure that the body was laser straight.  Now back in 1948 these Nashs could come with a two tone paint job and our client has opted to go with a custom paint combination of green and cream.  These color will carry over from the exterior of the vehicle to the inside window trim and dash.  The paint of choice for our restoration facility is Spies Hecker, a German based paint company.  We find that their paint has a better finish and holds up longer than any of the other brands out there.  They also offer a lifetime warranty on their product.
