13. Once Jake had the graphic taped out, it was sprayed with PPG Yellow and left to cure. After it was dry to the touch, we mixed a custom blend of gold flake with clear and covered the whole graphic.

Our Honest Opinion
I couldn't believe how nice this truck looked when it rolled out of the paint booth. It was almost like it wasn't the same truck. This was a real learning process for me; I learned everything from bodywork and painting to welding. After finally cutting and buffing the paint with 3M's three-step buffing process, we smoothed the clear and made it shine like a diamond. The gold flake shimmers when the sun hits it, and the PPG Metallic Blue looks as though it is dancing. The next and final step was interior and audio, and then it was on to the SEMA show. Check back next month to see how we transformed the interior.
