Rub-a-dub

100_1043 IMG_4157 IMG_4155 IMG_4156 IMG_4150The past few days Chris has been working diligently on the doors and fenders for the ’67 Chevelle. We painted these parts a few weeks ago and now its time to go the extra mile for the High Performance Finish. We started by blocking these panels out with 1000 grit sandpaper to ensure a smooth flat surface. We then switched to 2000 grit paper to make the buffing a little easier. Then 3000 on a dual action sander to speed the buffing process up even more. These extra steps are what it takes to provide our customers with the ultimate in gloss and depth. Just take a look for yourself.

Oh, Dashing

IMG_4139 IMG_4140This Impala belongs to one of our repeat customers. Its in the shop to get the dash painted the correct color. When the owner bought the car, the dash had been painted gloss black. The new owner didn’t like that very much so he asked us to paint it back the way it was supposed to be. Here you can see the factory style look he was going for.  It really looks better flat and it greatly reduces the glare on the windshield during night time driving. We had our glass guys re-install the windshield today to finish out the job.

Z little cruiser

IMG_4151 IMG_4152 IMG_4153We had this Z3 in the shop a couple of months ago to get its door jambs painted. When we finished with that, it left to get a top, new suspension and other mechanical things fixed up on it. Well, it came back Monday and we got right to work. We started by fixing the few little dents that were in it and got them primed in. Today we blocked out the primer spots and sanded the rest of the car in preparation for paint. This car will get a nice pearl white paint job. It will add a nice little sparkly touch for the owner to zip around in this summer. With all the nice weather we have been having lately, Im sure she is chomping at the bit to get this Z on the road. We will do our very best to make sure she is in it as soon as possible.

Camaro time

IMG_4143 IMG_4144 IMG_4145 IMG_4147 IMG_4148After weeks of working on late model Mustangs, it was nice to work on a little GM iron. This LS6 powered Camaro belongs to the son of one of the Mustangs we have worked on in the past few months. We joke and tell him he is obviously the one who got all the brains in the family. Its all in good fun, but it works up the dad a bit. Anyway, he wanted to get the scoop on the hood painted black and a few other custom touches on here while we had it in the shop.  We started by removing the hood and prepped it for paint like always. Once it was ready, we put it in the booth and sprayed a few coats of red over the front to fill in a few battle scars. Once that dried we masked off the scoop area to paint it black. We then pulled off the paper and sprayed 2 good coats of urethane clear coat. Tomorrow we will reinstall the hood and get the finished pictures.
