Etching the Mustang

DSCF8161 DSCF8165 DSCF8166The Mustang has under gone some transformations today. We had to strip all the paint off the door and quarter because of a previous repair that failed. So to ensure that it doesn’t happen again, we properly treated the metal with an etching primer followed by a urethane primer. The etching primer bites into the metal and the urethane primer bites to the etching primer. The urethane primer offers us a nice sandable finish to apply our sealers and paints that will come next week. While we were priming, Paul also sprayed some primer on the repaired dented areas as well. Tomorrow we plan on sanding this one and getting it washed up and ready for paint.

Head light restoration that works

DSCF8154 DSCF8156 DSCF8157 DSCF8158 DSCF8159  A little head light restoration today. The lights on this Camry have seen better days. We started by removing the lights and prepping them. This involves sanding off all of the yellow caused by the sun. The yellow is actually the plastic rotting from the UV rays from the sun. We must remove all of that to make sure we get a great repair. We then use special products to make a chemical bond between the plastic and the clear coat. Once they have been cleared and dry, they are ready to go back into the car. As you can see, the difference is clear. This makes a major improvement in night driving. I have seen lights so bad, they won’t pass inspection. So after you have tried all the home remedies like tooth paste, bug spray and cooking spray, bring your car to us so we can do it properly with lasting results.
