Although we don’t have a picture of the front bumper, the left corner underneath the headlight was ripped right off, as well as the fender liner and the left rocker panel molding. Quite a bit of damage here folks. Chris got to work on getting the bumper off while I started on the fender. Chase was on another project at this time but he was able to get it painted. After the dent was straightened out, it was primed . While we waited for the primer to dry we prepped the new bumper for paint. After lunch, (we dont miss meals here at JMC) we  block sanded the primer and it was Chases turn to work his magic. This color is a pearl color, or tri-stage. Which means there are 3 components to making up this color. There is the ground coat or color coat, a mid coat, or pearl coat, then clear coat. Most cars today are a 2 stage, color coat and clear coat. But some of those eye catching really vibrant colors are tri-stage colors. Extra paint, extra labor means they cost extra to repair as well. The last few pictures show it in the booth making these repairs disappear. Come Monday we will put all back together, give it a bath and the customer will be riding in style again.
