SNOOKY JANICH PAINT
After years of on and off working on the restoration of the Barris-built Snooky Janich 1941 Ford, the “end” is finally getting closer. The body finally has color on it.
Owner George Mallory has entrusted Dan Roberts and team at the Express Paint & Detail shop in Leavenworth with the job of fine tuning the body and getting it in paint. Well that last part, getting it in paint is finally there. Dan Roberts and David Daniels are currently in the progress of adding the paint. In the next two or so days the whole body will be in finished glossy 1952 Cadillac green. Today, November 13, 2014 Dan painted the car with two coats of base, which will be followed with two more base coats tomorrow. Then on to a couple coats o clear in the weekend.
The color already is looking amazing, but according to Dan it will become even a bit darker since the green is not covering 100%, so the next two more coats of base will darken the final color a little more.
I have started a CCC-Forum post where updates on the restoration process are being posted. So if you want to stay in touch check out the CCC-Forum for the lasest updates on the Snooky Janich Restoration.
Doors jambs and inside sections are all painted, the doors hung for the final time and the car is now ready to be taped of completely.
Exiting moment for the team… the body is all taped up and ready for chrome premier and then on for some color.
This is how the body looks after two coats of base color.
The next day it was time for two more green base coats, and then a few coats of clear. More photos of the glossy new paint-job can be seen in the CCC-Forum Post, linked above.
