Corner pocket

IMG_3473 IMG_3482This is the cab corner on the F350 that we have been working on. We painted the bed and tailgate yesterday but the owner wanted to paint the cab corner too. There was a previous repair on this cab corner and there was a little bit of clear coat that was peeling. So while we had it in the shop, per a request from the owner, we went ahead and fixed this too. Tomorrow we hope to get this one back together as well, or at least a good portion of it.

Reassembly time

IMG_3476 IMG_3479 IMG_3470 IMG_3471 IMG_3474 IMG_3475Yesterday and today we wet sanded and buffed the Mustang. We also had time today to start some of the reassembly. When we wet sand we start with 1000 grit paper. This process is to remove any orange peel and/or imperfections in the clear. After the 1000, we switched to 2000 grit paper then we used 3000. These last two steps are to make buffing  easier. When we buff we start with a heavy cutting compound the switch to a lighter cutting compound, followed by a polishing compound. After the buffing was complete we started putting parts back on. We were able to get the trunk back together, spoiler on, the sail panels on, and the doors all back together. Tomorrow we hope to get the fenders on, bumpers on and the rocker moldings. Once that is done, all thats left is to get it all detailed for the owner. Who knows, if the weather cooperates it could be Friday.
