After a brief stalemate waiting on parts for this Audi, we were able to get back to it today. The radiator support went back on with out a hitch. We were able to get all of that button up today. We also started it, checked for the right amount of fluids, checked for leaks, and made sure the cooling fans were operational. After all that, we slid it in the booth to get the hood fender and front bumper painted. Picture 3 shows in in the booth all prepped up and no where to go. Picture 5 and 6 shows the car with the sealer applied. This coat of paint is to ensure that the paint adheres to the panel correctly. It will also provide a cushin layer to help reduce rock chips. Pictrures 7 and 8 show the Audi with the color, in this case a pure black. In pictures 9 and 10 you can see what clear does to basecoat. Its what brings the car back to life. We still have to finish putting it back together and charge the A/C but today we made great progress. If all goes well, we will have it done tomorrow.
