Clear coating

Clear coating Jerem\'ys bassIn this photo, Bill is applying a layer of clear coat to the bass guitar in STORM’s specially built paint room. On this particular guitar, we used Sherwin-Williams Ultra 7000 automotive paint and a matching clear coat. We selected this specific paint to achieve the look that the customer wanted. It’s a pearl white metalic paint with a nice depth to it. This paint is applied in an primmer, base coat, mid coat and clear coat format. Yes, it’s a complicated finish and that’s how we like to work. 

This finish material is not like your off-the-shelf spay can paint. It’s rather difficult to mix and handle. It also requires the use a NIOSH approved respirator. It’s nasty stuff to sniff, but its worth the effort.
