“Luxury tailored to your good taste”
"The Conneaut COH-9149 (INK) TOP GRADE Leather was personally picked out by me".
When each of this Continental's seats were re-upholstered. extraordinary care was exercised to achieve perfect workmanship with every meticulous stitch. "
When I found her here in Orange County California I new "YEP. SHE'S THE ONE". As I looked her over. I knew she was solid as solid could get. Her bones are what you would expect growing up in California
Her body she needed very little work.
Here were the steps:
Prior to paint. her chrome trim was all removed re-chromed and professionally hand polished.
1. She was taken down to the metal (by hand) NOT by sand blasting. I was amazed at how perfect she was under that faded paint. She spent well over 60 days in paint and body. "No need to rush perfection".
2. Then we began by degreasing the metal to remove contaminants left over from the stripping process. The metal is then treated and coated with zinc for superior corrosion resistance and better adhesion of the subsequent paint layers.
3. Primer was the first layer of paint. It is formulated to fill tiny scratches and imperfections in the body and give the subsequent color coats something to adhere to. Unlike the drab gray primer of yesteryear. we used colored primer to hide future damage from rock or stone chips.
4. The base coat. or color layer. was the next in the process. In the past. this was the final layer of paint. which was directly exposed to the environment. We then applied clear coat paint over the final color layer. (Clear coat is a layer of paint without color pigment added-it is simply clear paint. The clear coat adds high gloss while protecting the colored base coat from scratching. chipping. and the effects of the environment. )
Finally. Her paint is thick and smooth as you can see in the photos.
