Below is the first video on this Plymouth Fury.
To begin with we will have a look around the car and assess the damage then make a plan of attack.
We are only doing a relatively quick repair and respray on this car due to the customers budget but that doesn’t mean it won’t look real nice when finished.
I had a guy help with the prep work on this car while I was busy on another job.
When it was ready for the booth I took over and this is where the video starts off with a look over the masking.
Next up I have to get a nice amount of good 2k primer over the whole car, I am using the Concept Paints HS primer through my Airgunsa AZ3 1.8mm primer gun.
Next up 3 coats of primer over the entire car and an extra where our filler repairs were.
I leave it for a couple of hours to flash off before coming back in the booth and getting some beige 2k colour in the door jambs.
I then continue to finish the video off with some 2k baby blue over the roof using a long time favorite gun of mine the DeVilbiss SGK 600-BV 1.4mm also known as FLG5 in some countries.
As it turns out The blue didn’t exactly go to plan and had a bit of solvent pop & poor prep work so later I decided to Flow Coat it for a real nice finish.
Yes I agree he should have chosen the same colour scheme as the popular Stephen King Movie from 1983 “Christene” with the 1958 Plymouth Fury, Painted in Red with a Beige roof.
If you aren’t familiar with the Stephen King Movie Christine.
I highly recommend at least seeing that Wikipedia link.
Get the basic idea because it truly is a cult classic movie that you should take the time to watch.
The Plymouth looks awesome! Can’t wait for the next instalment. I’ve a vauxhall Insignia to paint tomorrow, drivers side rear wheel arch and quarter, need to do some soft edge masking inside rear door so I’ve just got through a whole roll of 1″ tape whilst watching your video of how to flip the tape over the knee! Think I’ve finally got it, thanks again mate for another top tip.

Hi I have the 59 Plymouth Fury and I’m trying to remove all of her Chrome and I’m wondering if you have any tricks for me that would help me when doing so. Thank you so much for any help you can offer in advance.
