This Camry is in the shop to get repaired from a side swiping. Two items cannot occupy the same space. When that theory is tested with automobiles, this is the result. Luckily no one was injured but the Camry took a big hit. As you can see we are fixing the rear bumper for some minor scuffs and the left quarter for a small dent. The door will be replaced with a nice used one. We were able to repair the dents today as well as get them in primer. We also installed the new door, which luckily was the same color. We still need to paint this door because of a few scratches in it. We plan on getting this one ready for paint tomorrow and possibly painted if all goes well.
Today we spent a few hours getting the front of the bug back together. We started by running new lines from the resivoir to the master cylinder After that we bleed the brakes, installed the gas tank and front fenders. We then started straightening out some of the wiring. Since we didnt disassemble this car, we had to print out a wiring diagram to show us where things were supposed to go. Unfortunately we found that someone had been playing electrician in there before us so we just went ahead and straightened all of it up. We may continue with getting this back together some tomorrow if time allows.
This Beetle has been in the shop for a couple of months to get a new lease on life. Today we made sure it looks good strolling the streets. The fenders, hood and trunk were painted yesterday as well as the prepping of the car for paint. So today we slid the car in this morning and Paul started spraying. By the end of the day, this is the results. A very nice paint job on a very popular little car.
This Edge was damaged in a minor little bump up last week. We couldn’t save the fender or bumper on this one, so replacement parts will be ordered. We will also be replacing the head light. While we were waiting on parts, Paul prepped the door for blending. This will save us some time when the parts do come in. Although the damage looks pretty bad, nothing behind the fender or bumper was damaged except the bracket that holds the fender on near the bumper. Once the parts come in, this job will go smoothly.
This Tahoe was the unfortunate recipient of some front bumper and fender damage last week. Fortunately, the owner was not in it and no one was injured. We will be replacing the front bumper and left headlamp.Here you can see Chris working his body work skills on the fender. Once it was finished and primed Paul took over and got it painted today. This one will be reassembled tomorrow and cleaned up for the customer. If all goes well, she will be riding tomorrow evening.
