Candy Apple Red

Looks like we’ve gotten a bunch of links and visits recently from car sites who are interested in the paint color Candy Apple Red. They all reference the same picture

so I’m guessing they are all re-posting the same original.

Here’s an example.

Well, any traffic is good traffic (in a web sense, that is) so I’m making this page to help them in the future.

Airbrushing in Progress

Apparently they wrap the car in some sort of paper in order to get the positioning just right, then they tear away the paper as they paint the final artwork.

After Body & Paint

This looks dull because they deliberately sand it down in preparation for the airbrushed graphic.
But still, it’s a great improvement already!
They call this color “Candy Apple Red”.


Just to give you an idea of the start of this….

This little red Honda was in pretty bad shape. It needed a complete paint job and some body work as well.
