We are just about to wrap up this Mach 1. We had a storm come through a few weeks ago that damaged a few panels on this Mustang so we took care of that for the customer and while it was here we went ahead and buffed the rest of the car to get him ready for the upcoming show season. We also wired up sequential LED turn indicators that mount in the hood scoop for him. We are waiting on a new hood molding to come in which will be the final piece for this hot rod. It will be ready to go once that part comes in.
Today was paint day for the body of the Camaro. We spent a couple of hours this morning masking off the areas that we werent painting, then just before lunch we started spraying. A coat of sealer was sprayed over the primer areas and since the rest of the paint on the car was in good shape, we just sprayed base right over the old clear. Once the base coat was on and dry, a couple of coats of PPG’s high solids clear was sprayed. Tomorrow, we lay down the ghost stripes.
Today we were able to get some painting done on the Camaro. We started with painting the bottom side of the hood and trunk. We then painted the inside of doors. Once all that was dry, we flipped them over and painted the top side. While these were getting painted, the car was getting its final sanding so that tomorrow it can be made shiny. On a separate note, I will try to get that camera lens cleaned tomorrow.
We painted the Mustang today. This one is back in the shop to get some hail damage repaired from a couple of weeks ago. We did paint the hood on Friday, but I don’t think I got any pictures of that. We started prepping this first thing this morning and a few hours later it looks like this. It really turned out nice. We will give this a couple of days to dry and hopefully we can start sanding and buffing it by the end of the week. Once that is done, we can get it put back together and back to the owner. Car show season is among us and I have sneaking suspension the owner will want to show this one off.
This Camaro is almost ready to paint. We painted the roll bars last week and started getting the body ready for paint. Today we put the final sanding on the car as well as the final priming. We will only have to sand the new primer seen here before painting. The doors, hood and trunk are all ready for paint. We will get the doors trimmed out tomorrow
This Hyundai is the shop to get a new mirror and a nice sized dent repaired in the door. First thing we did was use the stud welder to pull the dent back into shape. We then smoothed the area out and applied the body filler to make the door straight again. Once that was all blocked out, we were ready for primer. While we were doing the repair process, the broken bits of the mirror were removed, the belt molding was removed as well as the outside handle. Tomorrow this one will be back silver.
