The first process in the paint shop is bodywork degreasing. Once that’s done, the bodywork receives its first anti-corrosion layer in the bath. The painting process proper has several stages. First, painting robots apply the base coat, known as primer, followed by a coat of colour paint after it has dried and been checked. This is the moment shown in the video – in this particular case the body will have the BronxGoldMetallic paint applied over the dark primer.

The final coat (after the previous coats have dried again) is a clear lacquer, which gives shine and protects the bodywork from minor scratches. The bodywork then heads into the final drying process, which gives the paint the necessary hardness.
