Dripping Wet Candy Blue Cadillac Escalade Fresh Out of the Booth
This is an update to the paintjob on Chickens Escalade, the hoopty. It still has a lot of work to be done. It hasnt been cut & buffed yet and all the trim pieces, doors, hood and hatch (and tons of other little parts) need to be installed still. Roy Devore, the same guy who shot my Tahoe is on this one as well. He dropped sealer, 5 coats of Silver base, 8 coats of Candy Blue, and 3 coats of clear. Subscribe for updates as i will have more video of this when its all put back together. Email Roy at roy@AutobodyWorkshop for questions...or if you are local (Northern California) and need some work done! He does everything from the biggest most luxurious RV's and busses, down to motorcycles and of course, Escalades.......whatever you need! Also, check out the new custom 3 piece AZA Forged wheels.....you might recall a few video's where i showed them being built. They are finally on! They were ordered from http://www.azaforged.com . No, i am not painting them blue, no i am not shooting the Wilwood Calipers blue. Just watch the video and enjoy it for what it is and if you dont like it, move on. Think we should do it another way? keep it to yourself because our suggestion box is closed. Thanks anyway! The song used is by the one and only Psyph Morrison and its called "like us".....sorta fitting for this video too.

Delicious Candy Blue SMD Escalade Bagged on 26's (Update 6) Blacked Out
The weekend is here and i decided to snatch up Chickens Caddy from the paint shop (Autobody Workshop, Sacramento, California) for a few days to get it all put back together again. Since you have seen it last, i added brand new LED Tail Lights, tinted Headlights, and got the door panels and A pillar's back in place. Roy Devore, the man responsible for laying down the Candy, also shot the tail lights for me with a blend of clear with black. It worked out great! After i got the system up and running, i called Mike at Tint 2k in Sacramento to come by and black out the windows. We ended up going with 5% all the way around on the 4 doors (i previously did the rear 3 myself) and 30% on the windshield. He wont drive this too much so its fine. Its fine anyway, its not as dark on the inside as it looks. You can see fine. Anyway, i just thought i would show you guys how this thing is turning out and what it looks like in the California sun. I still have work to do, i am adding Ridetech Titanium Shocks on all 4 corners starting next week. I also have a few nick nacks to handle and it should be ready to finally go home! Just in case you didnt know what those amps in the back are, they are 2 Rockford Fosgate T15k Amplifiers. There is 8 Fi BTL 18's and all Rockford Fosgate Mids/highs. Windows PC 10.2" Touchscreen and more....basicly the works. It is sitting on custom one-off, staggered 3 Piece Wheels by AZA ( http://www.azaforged.com ) wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero 295/25/26" Tires. Upoholstery is by Sean Kat, Kat Kustom Interiors Sacramento. I did some of it myself, but the stitching was all Sean Kat. Brakes by Wilwood: 16" Rotors 6 Piston calpers front , 14.5" 4 Piston Rear.... Paint of course by Roy Devore Roy@autobodyworkshop.com if you have any questions The song used in the end is by Dee of Hallway productions - he just dropped his mix tape the other day. It is available for download here http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/100198-more-free-music-from-ha llway-productions-link-inside/ Hallway productions has been down with SMD from day one so do me a favor and hit up their channel at http://www.Youtube.com/HallwayProductionz and subscribe!

How to Spray Candy Paint
Spraying Candy Paint can be tricky even to an experienced painter but will give you a finish that can be achieved with no other paint, there are a few different ways of going about the process and I will take you through 2 methods that I find work well, I am not a professional at candy paint application but always have a bit of fun trying out these cool custom paints, so check out this video and follow the procedure I have found works best, if you feel there is something I could have done to improve then feel free to let me and others know by adding a comment below.
