Kirchhoff Bodied Deusenberg

Randy Ima Inc.

This Kirchhoff bodied Deusenberg is one of only 3 Kirchhoff bodied cars and the only bodied Deusenberg.

In the summer of 2006 I did an internship with Randy Ema Inc. in Orange California and this was my assigned project. The fenders had been painted but the body was still in bare aluminum. I straightened out the sheet aluminum and made some repairs to the cast aluminum cowl and upper belt molding.

After body work, priming and wet sanding, it was ready for masking and top coats.

Top coats of PPG DCC enamel being applied.
