Course #PPG470-2

Restoration Seminar (2 Day)

We’ve created a class that helps painters achieve great results with custom restoration projects from prep-time to show-time. In the seminar you’ll learn about the latest products to use and the processes to apply them. You’ll learn about the various substrates you might encounter after sanding down to the metal—and the best ways to prepare them. And with the wide variety of products available to choose from, we can help guide you in selecting the best undercoats, getting that great-looking, authentic color, and choosing the right clears that’ll turn heads and protect your vehicle for years to come.
