On the straight and narrow

Recognize this Sentra? No? I’m not surprised. It sure didn’t look like this when it arrived at the shop a month ago. Then it was one messed up little car.

The car had been hit so hard in the back that the rear bumper was completely missing and the entire back end of the car was folded up like some kind of weird accordion. But you wouldn’t know it by looking at it now.

The car spent over a week a on the frame machine as it was teased back to true. All the sheet metal behind the rear doors, save the left side quarter panel, has been cut out and replaced with new pieces. The car has been painted, first inside, then underneath, and then finally, the outside, until it is as near factory perfect as man and machine can make it.

I can’t take all the credit for this job … I contact out my frame machine work, but I am very satisfied with how the car turned out. Had the car been much older the amount of damage it sustained would have probably totaled it.

But you wouldn’t know that by looking at it now.
