1974 Corvette | Fiberglass Prep & Paint

Body and paint is one of the largest steps to a restoration project. The cosmetics of the car are extremely important because everyone wants to make sure that the car looks as good as it runs and vice versa. At the Guild, the process is more in depth and has more stages than a collision center Bodyshop. Though a collision center is perfectly setup for their purpose, ideally a car is merely being repaired of any damage that makes it unsafe and it is repaired cosmetically to a certain degree. The Guild’s primary goal when it comes to body and paint is longevity and with that comes a high level of cosmetics. We will often hear “I don’t want a show car, I just want a good quality paint job that lasts”. Unfortunately, the two are not mutually exclusive and one comes with the other.

This video shows the process of prep and paint on a fiberglass bodied car. We show some issues with even the best quality of aftermarket panels and why so much care must be put into the prep of a car before applying paint that should last for decades with proper care.
