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 match the original color precisely 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.
