You have got to be kidding…

IMG_1643 IMG_1644 IMG_1645WHAM!!  The owner of this car and his family was on their way through N.C. to Atlanta when something flew off of an overpass and slammed into their sunroof shattering it. A quick google search brought them to us. Since they were on the road and need to keep moving to make their arrival time we cleaned them up and put a band aid on there to keep them moving. A big band aid. We started by going ahead and removing the rest of the broken glass and vacuuming that up in an attempt to keep it from continually falling in the car. We then tapped all the edges to ensure that no more glass fell out. We then covered the hole with something that was super sturdy, a piece of card board. Then we covered that with a piece of rubber to keep the water out, just in case it rained. But dont worry, we used 200 mph duct tape to hold all that together. It should last their entire trip. May not look the best, but at least they are back on the road.

After lunch Chris was able to get it all assembled and over to clean up. It will be back on the road, all shined up and ready for the weekend. Hopefully the bad luck wont follow it around.

The “key” to this repair

IMG_1640 IMG_1641 IMG_1642 IMG_1649 IMG_1650Whatta bummer! This really nice F150 has a battle scar due to some vandalism.  We started by removing the door handle, mirror, belt molding, ect.  Then it was time to get rid of that scratch. After that was smoothed away, we primed that area to ensure a good repair.  Once the primer was dry, we were able to get the panels sanded, prepped and in the booth for tomorrow. So in the morning we will squirt a little color on here and it will be as good as new.
