The bodies "in white" went through wash vats, then onto dip primer that went about 10" or so up from the rocker line.This is excellent information, and makes sense.
However, it makes me wonder how the factory got paint to stick with freshly stamped, never sanded or blasted shiny steel panels.
Paints today do not have the volume solid nor the Organic compounds it once had as they were solvent based.
Today, every car plant has wash, chromate and water borne finishes. The baking process simply speeds the curing process.
I just got out of the booth. 20 mins at 120 degrees and pull the tape...pull it out.
