However … since we were sandblasting and painting a few parts for the El Camino I decided to throw a couple of the Satellite parts into the mix. They needed the same treatment as the El Camino parts and I figured if we were sandblasting and painting parts, we might as well do them all.
These are the bumper brackets and part of the hood latching mechanism from the Satellite. I neglected to get any before pictures, but take my word for it, they look a lot better.
Yesterday we painted the front and rear bumpers on this Camry. The front bumper had a few scrapes and bruises that didn’t show in the pictures I took. The rear bumper, however, had a nice little ripped place in the bottom.
In the first picture Chris and I are putting the rear bumper back on the car. We put the front bumper on a few minutes earlier. Modern cars are great … once you get everything properly lined up the bumpers practically fall onto the car.
The second picture is of the car cleaned up and ready to go home. It looks good in it’s bright white paint sitting in the sun.
I think we can call this one done.
