I'm afraid I disagree Davie M.
Nearly every set of lyrics I can find agree with my ears that it's "just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside".
The interpretation of the dull paint job to give the car a "stealth" finish, and "looking inside" to get the most out of the engine, make most sense to me.
