Cadillac’s paint day

IMG_3587 IMG_3589 IMG_3590Friday we trimmed out this CTS. Today we installed the door and fender then prepped it for paint by blocking out the primer areas and sanding the rest of the panels to allow for proper paint adhesion.  Then we masked off the areas that we didn’t want to put paint on. This car has a 3 stage paint color on it. This means that there is a color coat, a pearl coat then a clear coat. We started with a coat of sealer, then followed that with 3 coats of color, then 3 coats of pearl then 2 coats clear. Tomorrow we plan on building the doors and reinstalling the front bumper. Not sure if it will be done in time for delivery tomorrow but Wednesday looks pretty promising.IMG_3594 IMG_3590

Parking lot mix up

IMG_3582 IMG_3583 IMG_3586 IMG_3592This Camry was involved in a  little bump up at very busy local shopping center. We will be replacing the left fender and repairing the door. We should have the fender in the morning. Once its trimmed out we will install it and get the door blocked out. With any luck we will get it painted as well.
