After a brief period to let the paint dry, the car was remasked for the
Sunflower Yellow base coat, which you see in the accompanying photos. The clear
coat was applied to the entire car hours later.
The base coat sprayed out as a gloss, but soon dried to a semi-gloss,
eggshell-like shine. In all, two coats of base coat were applied to the car
body before the final application of clear.
Herb spent some time arranging the panels so that once he got started, he could
move effortlessly from the body to the larger panels, such as the hood
or the fenders.
