After spending many hours wet sanding and detailing the edges of the GT55 body it was cleaned off one more time, re-masked and sent to the paint booth. PPG's DP-90 epoxy primer was used as a sealer and given proper flash time. The car was then painted white using PPG's DBC basecoat (three coats) then masked off and then painted blue (three coats). Next the car was clear-coated with four coats of PPG's high quality DCU 2002 Concept Clear to give the color its shine and to protect it from the sun's harmful UV rays. While PPG recommends only 2 coats of clear, Byers does 4 coats so there is plenty of material laid down for the color sanding process.
