Synopsis:

One of the challenges of collecting, restoring, and showing classic cars is keeping the paint blue ribbon condition. If your restoration involves stripping and repainting the entire car, you'll want to precisely match the original color. If the goal is to preserve the factory paint, you may be touching-up certain areas with the goal of matching those areas to the rest of the car's weathered panels.

Covering these topics and more, Stefan Gesterkamp leads the reader through the concours painting process. Whether doing it themselves or hiring a professional, the car's owner gains a solid foundation of knowledge before investing significant time and money into a paint project.

From the Back Cover:

*Create an award-winning paint job

*Flawless prep and body work

*Match original factory colors

*Refurbish original paint and bodywork

*Choose a quality paint and painter

 

One of the biggest challenges of collecting, restoring, and showing classic cars is creating a blue-ribbon paint job and keeping it that way, or preserving your car’s original paint. If your restoration involves stripping and repainting the entire car, you'll want to precisely match the original color or create a new paint job that blows away the competition. If your project involves restoring the car’s factory paint, then you’ll need to do so in a way that preserves the overall look of the car and the vision of the project.

How to Paint Your Show Car covers these topics and more. High-end automotive paint expert Stefan Gesterkamp leads the reader through the concours painting process, from body filler and prep to detailing and preservation. Gesterkamp shares his 25 years of experience and also passes along the knowledge of fellow painters and collectors like Chip Foose and Jay Leno.

Whether you do your own painting or hire a professional, How to Paint Your Show Car will guide you through the process of creating an award-winning paint job.
