Working the curves

IMG_3205 IMG_3199 IMG_3209 IMG_3206We got back on the Mustang pretty good today. We spent a good portion of time on the body work. We were able to get the dents fixed in the body and all of the parts sanded. We were also able to get a little bit of priming done. When we primed the CRV, the fender and the hood from this car were also ready. So, we went ahead and primed then too. Tomorrow we plan on priming the rear bumper, the body and the other fender. The rear bumper was in good shape with the exception of the spider webbing cracks in the paint. This comes from minor bump ups. It doesnt damage the bumper, but the paint cant flex as much as the plastic in the bumper can so it cracks. We had to remove every one of those cracks so the cracks would not show in the new paint. IMG_3200 IMG_3201

Fish house bump up

IMG_3196 IMG_3198 IMG_3203 IMG_3204The owner of the brand spanking new CRV went out for dinner one night and while they were waiting for a space to park, WHAM! A truck was backing out of their spot and hit the side of the CRV. Now the damage could have been a lot worse. Luckily they were not going very fast. We started by removing the handles, trim and mirror. We then used a stud puller to pull the dents out to a more manageable size. We followed that with some body filler to fine tune the damage. Then we primed the damaged area with urethane primer. Tomorrow we plan on blocking out the primer then we can prep the rest of the panels for paint. We should be able to get this one painted tomorrow if all goes well.
