You know Kevin Tetz. He’s been on TV a bunch and he’s built cars like his Project Zed Sled among a fistful of others. You also know Kevin Tetz because he’s the exact same positive and cool guy in person as he is on the TV shows that he’s been on. A truly good dude who is a truly gifted body man, Tetz is taking his talents to the inter webs and will be doing it through Paintucation, videos and stories about how you, yes you can handle the body needs on your own project and come out feeling good about it.
In this video, Kevin talks about panel alignment and gaps, how to fix them, and the right/wrong way to do stuff. While people always preach that prep is the key to great paint (and they are right) it is panel fitment and proper gaps that really take a nice vehicle and make it a great one. In the case of this video, Kevin is using a classic Chevy truck as his test subject. It is a driver and not a concourse restoration or some insane show rig. Things have moved in 50+ years of driving around and they need to be set back into the right position to give this truck the factory looks that it should have.
Doors, hoods, and general best practices are addressed here in a fun, easy to understand, and well demonstrated way. We’re excited for this series of videos to grow because Kevin’s a guy who reaches a lot of people and can really teach you how to do this stuff right.
Watch the web video below and then get out to the shop and line up the panels on your old stuff!
