It’s Going Green

Classic car technician Al has been giving our 1959 Jensen 541R a new coat of paint.

After he prepped the freshly primed body, Al mixed the paint using the paintshop scales to make sure the paint was exactly the right consistency to use on the car.

Once the paint was mixed, Al made sure the body was completely clear of dust and debris. It was at this stage that the paint began to be applied. After the first coat of paint was on and fully dried, a second full coat was added.

A drop coat was then applied to help get rid of any patchiness that may be present in the new paint. Finally, 2 coats of lacquer were applied (5 minutes apart) and the car looked great in its new green colour.
