An umbrella?

IMG_1912 IMG_1914 IMG_1918 IMG_1925 IMG_1926 IMG_1927 IMG_1929 IMG_1930When the owner of this brand new Accord told me that an umbrella hit his door and he needed an estimate, I though ok, no big deal. Then I opened the pictures and thought, WOW! that was some umbrella. But getting further into the conversation I learned that it was a restaurant umbrella that fell over as a result of the storm that moved through here last week. OK, that makes more sense now. So what we did here was ordered a new molding, and repaired the door. We started by removing the old molding. This enabled us to get to the back side to pull this dent out to align the metal before applying filler. After straightening the panel, we primed it. Once the primer was good and dry we blocked it out and prepped the two doors for paint. We blended the front door on this car to ensure a good color match. After Chase laid down the base coat it was time for the clear. The clear is the layer of protection that provides the gloss and the protection for the color coat. Tomorrow we will reassemble the doors and send this one to clean up. Being a brand new car, I’m sure the owner wants to get back in it.
