This little Honda came in to get a minor collision damage fixed up. We will be installing a new fender and repairing the front bumper and the left front door. We did get the bumper removed and repaired, the fender removed and the door repaired. Chris also removed the door handle, mirror and belt molding off of the left door. This afternoon, we also got the bumper repaired as well as the door. The new fender will be in tomorrow. As soon as we get it, we will have to trim it out and get it installed onto the car. We will then be able to put it into the booth and get silver paint flowing.
Here you can see some progress on the ’67 Beetle. We will be doing some rust repair on this car over the next few months. We needed to remove the body to be sure we order up all the necessary part to get this one moving. This one will be getting new pans, a new left bumper mounting plate, new bottom heater channel plate and a couple other goodies. We spent the morning removing wires, brake lines, emergency brake lines, speedo cable and a few other odds and ends. Once that stuff was out of the way, we started removing the body bolts and steering column. We then put the lift under the body and lifted it right off. We will degrease the frame and remove the 48 years worth of gunk that on there so when it all goes back together it will be clean and neat. Stay tuned, this one will be a fun one.
