On the Olds
Yesterday I took a little time to work on the Olds. This car had was all decked out with kinds of stripes. These on the front and rear bumpers have been there since 1985. Needless to say, they were a bit tough to get off. It took a plastic scraper and quite a bit of lacquer thinner and elbow grease. The next set of photos shows an old face from the shop. Jordan came by to give us a hand so we out him doing the best job in the shop, blocking and sanding. The trunk and hood were also installed today. We found a few places that needed a little extra primer. Tomorrow we will handle that, then give it another once over with the sander. We should be ready to paint this one early next week.
Let their be light
Today we pulled out the hide away headlight brackets. Chris disassembled them and sand blasted them. After they were all stripped and all cleaned up, Chase did the magic in the booth. First of all a coat of epoxy primer was sprayed, followed by a couple of coats of egg shell black. They cleaned up very nice. While the guys was doing this, I was busy with the wiring of the headlights and of the turn signals. Maybe we will have some pictures of that tomorrow.
This Honda came in yesterday to get a new fender and the front bumper repaired. Since black normally matches pretty good, we took a chance and are going to try painting the fender off the car with out blending anything. I’ll let you know how it comes out. Here you can see the we already have the bumper and the fender off and the bumper repaired and primed.
