Things have been very hectic around the shop the past few days. This Versa came in last week to get an new fender, door and the rest of the side repaired. While it was here the owner wanted to get an older claim fixed where a basketball goal fell on the roof. We got started right away on the side repair but had to wait until the other claim could be processed. Well that happened today. Last week we did get the new front door and fender installed and the rear door fixed. Today we were able to get the roof repaired and primed. Tomorrow the plan is to get the car painted then spray the bumpers on Thursday. Hopefully this means we will be putting this one back together on Friday. You can see in the pictures that on the roof repair we used the stud gun. This tool welds a small stud to the panel, the using a special puller, we pulled the metal back into shape. Once we have the metal where we want it, we grind the studs off. This makes straightening the panel much easier and allows for the use of less body filler. There is lots of work left to do on this one, but it is moving along nicely.
