If your car is a few years old, your A/C system could be not operating at its best. With hot weather quickly approaching, you are going to want your A/C working at its best. Call or email us to set up a time to get your system checked out and re-charged to keep it at its best. We are running a $99. special for the rest of this month so give us a call today.
Dont you just hate hit and runs? The owner of this Lexus sure does. The rear bumper was hit as she was shopping one day and no one left a note for her. We first removed the rear bumper and all of the back ups sensors. Chris then sanded out the damage and repaired the area back to original condition. We also removed the front bumper to properly fix previous shoddy repair work. The front bumper has been replaced at some point in time and was not proper painted. While it was here, the owner wanted us to fix that up for her as well. Tomorrow we plan on getting these bumpers back on and cleaned up for the owner.
While the Ghia was getting stripped, Chris and I worked on the ’52 Ford doors, yet again. We did make good progress today, the left door is ready for primer. The right door (the one Chris is working on) was in much better shape than the left. It will not take as much time to straighten out the right as it did the left. We hope to get the cab out tomorrow and start the sanding process on it. It should make for more interesting pictures too.
This Frontier was dropped off to get the bed fixed up. The bed had been used to carry various home improvement items and had a bit of wear and tear. This new sprayed in bed liner not only looks great but will protect the bed from future projects. It will also help keep the object from sliding all around back there as well. If you are looking to get a bed liner in your truck, give us a call.
A customer dropped off these parts to his bike last week to get a fresh new look. He had some ideas on what he wanted his color to look like but we took it a step further. He wanted an eye catching blue with lots of pearl in it. We obliged but also added a spoonful of bass boat sized silver flakes. This added even more pop and pizzazz without taking away from the blue he wanted. Once Paul had sprayed that on, 3 good coats of clear was applied. The customer loved it. It really dances in the sun and grabs your attention.
This is the other door on the ’52 Ford. While I was working on the Ghia, Chris was hard at it on the door. He started by sanding the entire door, inside and out. During the sanding process, Chris found a few small holes that needed to be welded up so that was take care of right away. Those were then ground down smooth again then it was prepped for epoxy primer. It was hung up so all areas could get primed. Epoxy provides great protection for the metal and has great adhesion to bare metal. This will dry over night and we hope to start the body work on here tomorrow. This door is in MUCH better shape than the left one.
