Parking lot bump up

IMG_3061 IMG_3062This Equinox was in a slight mishap over the weekend. We disassembled it Monday, wrote up an estimate and ordered up the parts. We hope to have them tomorrow or Friday. We will get this repair under way and back to the owner as soon as possible.

Jordan has been blocking and sanding on the fenders for the past few weeks here and there, in between other jobs and this week they were finally ready for paint. Early yesterday morning Chris and I slid them into the booth to get some color on there. We started the process by completely blowing them off to ensure there was no dust hiding out. We then wiped them down with a wax and grease remover. We followed that up with more blowing and more dust removal using a tack rag. Once they were good and clean, I started painting with a coat of white sealer. This will help with the coverage and evenness of the color coat. Once we were covered with color, three coats of clear was applied.  They really turned out very nice. Today we finally mated the body back to the frame. You can see Jordan and Chris laying down on the job, as usual. They said they were checking the bolt alignment but I didnt fall for that.  A little later we did have it wrapped up. I really think the black frame and painted underside looks very nice. Now that we have a post lift in the shop, we will be able to do more of these.
