Dash away

IMG_4109 IMG_4111This ’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.

Bruised up Titan

IMG_4107 IMG_4108 IMG_4110This Titan came in the shop yesterday to get the bedside fixed,  a new tail light and a new rear bumper. We started by removing the rear bumper, tail light and the tail gate. We had to use a  pretty heavy duty tool called a port o power to jack the bedside back out into shape. A port o power is a hydraulic tool that has a pump that forces fluid to a ram that moves in and out as you pump it like a car jack. We positioned it in the hole where the tail light goes and used it to push the metal back out. Once we had the factory shape back, we used body filler to fine tune it. The bumper for this truck should be in tomorrow and we will have to paint that to match the old one. Finish it off with a new top bumper pad and a new tail light and this Titan will be back in business.
