OCD Z28 [COTW 12/14/15]

Hey guys, one of our customers came to us to shed some weight off his new Z28. He went with all our currently available parts for the Z28, dry CF hood, dry CF trunk, hood insert and cooling plate, spoiler, and diffuser.

But here didn't stop there. He is so meticulous that the orange peel on the factory was bothering him. So we put him in contact with our painter and they will be doing a complete new paint job on a brand new car.



Way to tear up into a new Z

Seems like sanding and buffing the factory paint would make a huge difference. I have a customer who did it to his black Camaro, the results were amazing

The factory paint job has a ton of orange peel! It’s especially noticed on a black paint job. Anything you can do to make it like glass will make a huge difference. The only thing about cutting the factory clear is that there’s not much paint on the car. So it’s easy to burn through. Plus you leave very little material left to protect the paint. When you repaint a car, you can lay three coats of clear. Sanding it will remove one which still leaves you with two coats.


As you can see, the title of the thread is OCD, that’s why the doors, fenders, dumpers, glass, etc……. are being removed. This type of work doesn't come cheap either, LOL

When you spend close to a 3rd of the price of the car on a paint job, I think clear bra is a good idea

What a waste. The factory OEM baked on paint job is better than the EPA mandated water based crap most bodyshops here in So. Cal have to use. I can be pretty OCD too, but the factory paint is a lot better than the average junk most bodyshops will give you. That is unless you take it down to bare metal and use the best solvent based two stage paint you can buy.

Yep, those rocks and track debris are going to love chipping up that paint. :shakeshead:
