Body In White

A. Hi Subhro. As I picture and understand it, the cleaning and priming is done by the same factory that builds the body, so the only spec I would foresee --if any-- would an internal one for your individual factory or your car manufacturer. If anyone knows differently, please advise!

This seems like it could be a interesting and educational topic. But I think it's up to you to make it so, Subhro, by providing the background that motivates you to post about it :-)

Thanks & Regards,
