What dent?

IMG_1965 IMG_1967We completed the repairs on the very nice 2013 Accord today. This is the one that a restaurant umbrella fell on the rear door of. The repair went smoothly and the customer was very pleased, especially with the quick turn around time. Now, if I can just keep myself from driving by the Honda dealership and trading in my wife’s ’07 Accord on one of these. Did I mention how nice this car was?

Guess who’s back…

A nice solid body. We will get to sanding on this one next week and start the priming process. Once you have a system that works, you stick to it. So this car will get the same treatment as all the others. Epoxy, slick sand, block, body work, final prime. Its a tedious process but it yields great results.

What a difference

Today was P day. Paint day for the Jeep. We started by blowing it off really good. All the nooks and crannies that can hold dirt were blown out to ensure a good clean job. After that we started taping it up to keep paint off of areas that didnt get painted. Then we rolled it into the booth, covered up the wheels and prepped it for paint. After it was all clean Chase applied a coat of sealer. This is to provide a uniform base color to make coverage easier and it increases adhesion. Once that dried 4 coats of the turquoise base coat then 3 coats of clear. The job turned out great. Its a 1000% improvement of what we started with. Tomorrow we start putting it all back together.
