Most people do one of two things with their car. They either touch up the road rash, the little pecks that you get in your cars paint, themselves … or they do nothing. But every now and again I get a car where someone wants a “professional” touch up. This Roush Mustang is one such case.
While to call the car beat up would be a huge stretch, like all cars that people actually get out, drive and enjoy, it has collected a few pecks in the paint from rocks and other debris being kicked up off the road. The owner wanted them fixed … fixed beyond the typical owners touch up.
The first two pictures show the chipped places sanded and smoothed. This is so when the new paint is spotted on it will smooth into the existing paint without the tell-tale bump of paint over paint. The last two are the sanded areas primed.
Tomorrow we will shoot the paint, blending the areas just like on a regular repair. So this job is more than a typical touch-up, but less than a full on repair since I didn’t really repair anything.
I’m not sure what to call this type of job. Professional touch-up? Touch-up pro? I know … Touch-Up Grande.
