Team Witt Customs Changes the Color of a 1977 Cadillac Eldorado Interior Using ColorBond
Team Witt Customs, an automotive design, custom and restoration shop located in Nashville, TN, has been THE shop to go to for high-end restorations and unique customs since its opening in January 2008. Known for completing the highest quality customs and restorations, Team Witt’s reputation stands strong in the Nashville community.
Team Witt Customs just performed an awesome interior restoration on a 1977 Cadillac Eldorado using ColorBond car interior paint. The car originally had white seats, which the vehicle’s owner transplanted into another El Dorado in his collection. The owner then provided Team Witt with a donor brown leather interior to be refinished in the same crimson color that was originally used with the 1977 Eldorado. Using ColorBond LVP Refinisher in GM Crimson #64, an exact match to the OEM color used with the 1977 Eldorado, Team Witt repainted the seats and armrests. As you can see, the results are amazing!
Of note, ColorBond is the only provider of aerosol car interior paints that are OEM color correct; currently there are 196 hues available for a wide range of import and domestic vehicles. More information on ColorBond’s OEM color selection can be found here.
Here is what Nikki Witt, of Team Witt Customs, had to say about ColorBond:
“We originally saw ColorBond at the SEMA Show. In their booth they did a demonstration where they painted a section of a car seat. It dried in 60 seconds and it looked great! We were sold! Before the Eldorado restoration, we had used ColorBond for painting small interior areas on other projects. With the Eldorado, it was the first time we sprayed all the whole interior. ColorBond was very easy and simple to use. It went on evenly and it turned out beautifully! The color came out pretty good I think. We had painted the interior in our paint booth that was heated to help dry paint. We actually found allowing the ColorBond to cure outside the booth, where the air was about 20 degrees cooler, allowed it to dry more quickly”.
Kudos to Team Witt for such a wonderful interior restoration!
