Meet Paul. Our newest employee. He has 20 years experience and is PPG certified. He comes to give us a hand in the booth and as well as the in the body shop as well. This Mercedes needed a lot of rock chips fixed in the front end as well as a few battle scars from over the years repaired. This warranted a complete respray by the time we fixed it all. After all the chips and scratches were repaired, the bad areas were primed. Then the primer areas were blocked out and the rest of the car was sanded prepped and washed. The next day it was tapped up and slid into the booth for paint. Paul sprayed and nice slick job on the SL. We will need to buff up a few places tomorrow. Hopefully if all that gets done, it will go home to its owner on Friday.
This little Jetta is in the shop to get a couple of accidents from the college days fixed up. A new bumper, grill and headlamp is on tap as well as a repair on the left fender. Yesterday the car was disassembled and inspected for hidden damaged. The fender was also repaired and primed yesterday. Today it was sanded and prepped for paint. After lunch, it took its turn in the booth and was painted. Tomorrow the plan is to reassemble it, get it cleaned up and delivered back to the customer. That should go pretty smoothly and be a pretty quick turn around.
