This new Silverado came into the shop to get a battle scar repaired. A bicycle handle bar got a little too close and put a good scratch in both doors. We repaired the scratch last Friday and slid it into the booth today for paint. As you can see it turned out really nice. Tomorrow we will put it all back together and replace the emblem on the door. It should be ready tomorrow evening.
Bars, bars and more bars. We will be painting the roll cage in this Camaro hopefully tomorrow. It will definitely be a challenge. We have painted a few roll cages in our time but this one is definitely takes the cake. We have had the car for a few days and have the inside prepped for paint. We also have the firewall smoothed up and primed. We will be painting that as well. Once the inside is done, we will have a few holes to weld up in the quarters where the old spoiler was mounted. This won’t be used anymore, so we will make those go away. We also have already primed the fiberglass hood, trunk, and doors and those are ready to paint. We will get some pictures tomorrow and try to get those posted for your viewing pleasure.
This Solstice came in today to get a couple of small dents repaired. As you can see, there wasnt much to them. We repaired them today ans got them in primer. Tomorrow this one will go in the booth to get painted. The owner has then requested it be buffed and detailed inside and out. This will be in tip top shape by the end of the week.
This Accord is in the shop to get the “dog leg” portion of the left quarter panel repaired. It was the victim of a little parking lot bump up.Someone backed into the quarter and wheel area at a low speed so luckily there wasnt too much damage. We were able to “massage” the area back into shape and then used a light coat of filler to finish smoothing out the wrinkles. As you can see here we did get it all fixed today and primed. Sorry, I missed the primed pictures. Tomorrow we will block the primed area and prep the rest of the quarter and rear door for paint. Tomorrow this one will take its turn first in the booth.
This Hyundai is in to get a little scratch in the rear bumper repaired. Like almost of our bumper jobs, we remove the bumper to give the best quality repair. We sanded out the scratch and Paul put a couple of coats of primer on the damaged area to ensure that the spot is fully hidden once its painted. Tomorrow we will sand the primer and the rest of the bumper first thing in the morning in hopes of getting it painted and reinstalled later in the afternoon.
I’d have to say, the owners of this Escalade are pretty lucky. During a bad storm we had here a couple of weeks ago, this vehicle got into a tussle with one of those cable style guard rails. Luckily the occupants were not hurt, their Escalade on the other hand didnt fair so well. Luckily cars are easier to fix than people are. After getting things worked out with the insurance company, we have started repairs. As you can see we did get a good start on it this afternoon. A lot of the parts are here so we plan on plugging right along on this one. Tomorrow Paul will get the parts trimmed out and I will keep removing the bent stuff and straightening out what I can. Again, and as always, we are glad no one was hurt and everyone walked away.
