Yesterday we were able to get epoxy primer on the door we prepped for the 1952 Ford Truck. There has been extensive metal work done on the door by MurFab. He cut out all the old rusty metal and installed new. He also installed Bear Claw latches which will modernize the operation of the door. This thing will open and close like butter. This door was meticulously prepped before the epoxy was sprayed. The epoxy provides great protection for the metal and a great base for the slick sand and body filler that will go on top of this. We hope to get a few coats of slick sand on here tomorrow so we can get the body work moving along.
This Camry is in the shop to get the front bumper repaired. We have all seen it before, a car with a hole in the bumper. This is usually caused by a trailer hitch on a truck backing into, or a car pulling too close to that hitch. In this case, the driver of the truck just happened to stop and the exact moment the hitch hit the bumper. A very nice dent, but no hole. This was repaired by first removing the bumper then using a heat gun, the dent was heated up and pushed back out. A little filler on there to be sure its all smoothed up and straight then its off to the paint shop for primer and paint. The last picture shows the bumper painted and ready for reassembly.
