Back in black

We started off by masking the car so when we paint the blue, we don’t have to sand all of the overspray off before prepping the outside for paint. Once that was done, we wiped down all the areas that were to be painted. Once it was ready to spray, we started with 2 coats of PPG Epoxy primer. Once that was dry, we sprayed 2 coats of PPG semi gloss black. Painting bars doesn’t sound all that difficult until you put them into a box, weld them all together at different angles and then add layers to them. It was definitely not something I want to do everyday but it was a nice break from the normal fender, bumper jobs.

Storms a coming

DSCF9318DSCF9317A couple of weeks ago, we had a storm here in Greensboro. The owner had been out earlier that day in his Mustang. The storm came up quick and included hail and high winds. Unfortunately this Mustang was caught up in it and was damaged by it. You may remember this car, we restored it a few years ago. Yesterday we started the repair by removing all that needed to be removed to ensure a quality job. Today we repaired the damaged areas and Paul sprayed a few coats of primer on the repair. Over the next day or so we will get the primer blocked out and the rest of the panels prepped for paint. We sure hate that this happened to his pride and joy, but we will get it looking all spiffy again in no time.
