With all the other things going on in the shop today, we still managed to make some time to get the body off of the Chevelle. We had the lift installed last week and its first job is to hold this body for a while. The owner wanted the bottom of the car to be painted just like it was from the factory, so, we are giving him what he wants. This will also allow us to paint the frame properly and install new body bushings and any thing else that needs to be done.
The bed side for the dually had its turn in the booth today. Jordan sanded it and the inner fender as well as the support brackets this morning. Next he put them in the booth and prepped them for paint. We started with a full coat of sealer on all parts followed by 3 coats of color then 2 coats of clear. Unfortunately, we didnt get a picture after we cleared the parts. Tomorrow we hope to get the truck in the booth and paint the doors. The last picture you can see that Jordan has sanded the primer areas and is scotching the rest of the panels. Its not a fun part of the job, but its one of the most important.
This Maxima came in today to get the front bumper repaired. There was a slight bump on the front bumper that caused a knot in the plastic. We started by heating up the knot and pushing it down as flat as possible. We then sanded the area and used the proper bumper repair filler to do the final straitening. We then primed the area. Tomorrow we will sand the rest of the bumper, prep it up and get it painted.
