This Wrangler came in today in need of a new bumper because of a slight bump up. We had previously priced painting the fender flares for the owner so while it was here we are handling both repairs for the owner. The flares on the right were in pretty bad shape. The clear coat on them was breaking down and turning chalky. We sanded them down and primed them to ensure a good quality repair. Before we left we were able to get them all sanded up and washed. The new bumper will go on right after they get painted in the morning.
We had an Accord get dropped off this morning to get a new rear bumper. We started prepping this bumper by sanding the bumper so the paint will properly adhere to it. We then sprayed a coat of sealer on it to help with paint coverage and adhesion. Once the sealer was dry we sprayed 3 coats of color followed by 2 coats of clear. This will go back together tomorrow and be ready for the customer and the weekend.
This Titan is coming along nicely. We got the bumper in early enough today to get painted and installed. The light that came in with it was damaged so we will get another one tomorrow morning. This one will be getting cleaned up and delivered tomorrow. Here you can see Chris laying down on the job again.
This ’63 Impala belongs to a very loyal repeat customer. We have done numerous cars for this guy in the past but this Impala is the latest job from him. He bought the car pretty much the way it sits with a few exceptions. He pulled the motor out to perform a complete rebuild as well as the 4 speed transmission. He also upgraded the front suspension and installed disk brakes. We will be painting the dash in the car for him our signature egg shell black. This dash was painted entirely too shiny and it made driving it difficult. There was too much reflection in the windshield causing a terrible glare. We called in our glass guys to remove the windshield for us to provide better access to the dash. Here you can see Jordan prepping it for paint. We may be able to get it painted on Friday if all goes well.
This is the rear body panel on the Juke. We did get in the booth first thing this morning to get painted. We also had the glass in the hatch switched out today. Once those were done, we put the interior back together and started on assembling the bumpers. Those will go on in the morning before we send it over to get a full clean up for the customer. If all goes well, this Juke owner will be cruising the streets this weekend.
Here is the results on the Fat Boy we started yesterday. Today we laid out the flames, sprayed them and cleared them. These flames were hand taped and painted then clear coated. We even put a few coats of purple pearl over the white to spice it up even more. These will pop outside in the sun. These colors should make this Harley stand out from the rest.
This Harley Davidson Fat Boy tank and fenders were dropped off the other day to get a fresh new coat of paint. The owner wanted to jazz the bike up to fit her style. She knew exactly what she wanted and it only took a few minuets for us to iron out the details. I’m not going to spill all the beans here on what these will look like when we finish, you will have to check back to see for yourself.
