The paint crew at Dannys Paint Shop in Ontario, California, were on the program from the beginning. I dropped off the Camaro in bare metal and by the time I returned later that week they had done a bunch of the metalwork and put the first coat of primer down! While doing heavy rust replacement with the car in bare metal is common, it is widely held that applying primer right away and then bodyworking over it provides the best adhesion of the paint and body filler.
