El Camino Body and Paint Repair


Classic El Camino came in for a little facelift.  The car needed some body work and new color.  The roof was peeling and the color was fading all throughout.  Check out how it came out and let us know what you think.


You can see the damage on the roof from wear and tear.  The paint had begun to fade and peel.


On the lift we can see the car in different angles which help us repair the body to a silky smooth finish.


Taking it down to bare metal in some parts.


The doors on the El Camino needed extra love to look its best.


The door got a nice coat of bondo and some time under the California sun.


As you can see on the pictures below most of the panels needed some bondo applied to make sure the body’s lines looked their best.




After my guys tell me, “boss it’s done” I go in with a fine comb and give it another final-final check just to make sure we didn’t miss anything.  The lines had to be straight and smooth on the El Camino before we take it in to the paint booth.


Once I give it the “OK” it’s time to get “wet” with paint.  The client wanted to stay in the same color tone as the El Camino had before but went just slightly lighter on the gray, more like a silver vibe.  It turned out really nice.



Once the paint was all said and done.  Last details were added, logos, emblems, tags, bumpers, etc and the El Camino was ready to get back on “el camino”, the road, for those non-Spanish readers.  Client was happy and that makes us happy.





In the end, the El Camino was looking more like a mirror, the body and paint came out flawless.  Big thanks to the West Coast Body and Paint crew and the client for trusting us with this beautiful classic.
