A little work arrives at the shop

A 1962 Austin-Healey Sprite was dropped off at the shop today. The owner had already removed all the bright-work and interior, which will make getting it ready for paint quicker.

When I was inspecting the car I noticed a flaw in the paint I hadn’t seen before. I wanted to take a look at that while the owner was still standing there in case I uncovered something that was going to add significantly to the cost. It turned out to be nothing, but you should have seen the owners face when I attacked his car with a power sander.

At least I warned him first.
