Page Thirty One:    Color at Last!

With the car finally in the paint booth, Matt Graham wipes it down to remove any last trace of dust.

A coat of sealer primer is applied for a moisture proof seal between the paint and bodywork.

After the sealer, the sharp edges receive a preliminary coat of paint.

The entire car now receives its first coat of Glacier Blue paint.

As the booth fills with a cloud of paint vapor, the MG begins to take on its orignal factory color.

Like a phanton emerging from the fog, the car appears to materialize in the paint booth as the fans exhaust the paint-spray dust.

The artist admires his work. Just six more coats to go!
