This cute little 1980 VW diesel pickup found its way in to Mike’s Truck & Line-X Bay Area badly in need of a new skin. Meet Rusty. We fell in love with this car and made it one of our shop cars. As you can see, Rusty needed some serious love. Lucky for Rusty, she has a straight body with no serious dents or damage which made this little Volkswagen an excellent candidate for a Line-X exterior. At Mike’s Truck we have the capability to mix any automotive paint color code in Line-X material. For this application we went with the same Chevy colors we used on our shop truck, Dark Gray bottom and Dark Blue on top.
The first step was to completely strip her down to a bare body – removing all the accessories, bumpers, mirrors, lenses, headlights, door handles, etc. Next step is the primer coat. This base coat is light gray Line-X applied to the whole body. Once the Line-X is applied, the surface is permanently sealed from moisture and rust. Then the Line-X color coat is applied.
Mike’s Truck & Line-X can custom finish your vehicle in the factory paint color you choose, or they can mix up a new custom color. The total process takes less than a week. Give us a call at the shop at 925.272.7666 or stop by and talk to Rich or Scott or Josh – don’t forget to bring your car with you, or atleast a bunch of pictures or a video so that they can get a really good idea what you want.
