From The Driver Seat
This was a routine project for Kelly & Son. It was amazing to see what could be done with gray, silver, and black. Mitch applied multiple layers of different shades, while checking them as he went along in order to manipulate the colors. If you know what you are doing, we suppose a paintjob like this isn't horribly difficult to execute, and fewer colors and less intricate graphics made the design of this paintjob easier. It's a great project for a shop that is on the go.
