Not again

dscf9739dscf9740dscf9741dscf9748dscf9749dscf9750dscf9751dscf9752 Yes again. You remember this Mustang don’t you?  We painted it a couple of years ago for the owner and over time it has been attacked 3 times by deer. So, thats what we have here. It had been hit twice on the right side and now they are after the left. We were able to repair this fender and quarter with the exception of the side scoop, thats on order. We removed the wheel and fender liner to allow access to the damage. We then used a hammer and dolly to flatten out the damage and prepped it for filler. Once the body work was in ship shape it was primed. This morning, this one was first on the list. We blocked out the primer and prepped the panels for paint. Once that was all done, Paul did his magic in the booth. As you can see, its like it never happened. We are still waiting on the scoop so as soon as that comes in, this Mustang will be ready for the road again.

Shiny Shelby

DSCF9482DSCF9483DSCF9484After a few days of stripe removal and buffing up where they once were, we finally got around to painting the front end on this GT500. The front wasnt really damaged, but there were a few little rock chips and battle scars on there from its time on the road. We have now repaired all of them and its standing tall now. Over the next few days we will start the reassembly process and buff out a few places once the paint is dry enough. Im sure the owner is ready to get back in the hot seat of this ‘Stang but its going to be a few more days.

Shelby gets a face lift

DSCF9469DSCF9468DSCF9470DSCF9471This Shelby GT 500 is ready to get its front end freshened up. It has a few miles on it and it has seen a few laps around the track. Its noting really major, just a few chips We must remove the stripes to refinish the hood and bumper, but while we were at it, the owner opted to redo all of stripes on the car just be sure that they all match and look the same. The track days are over for this Pony. Cruising and car shows are all that the future holds for  her. We intend to make sure she looks her best.

Fine ’69

DSCF9357DSCF9355We 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.

Looking good

DSCF9340DSCF9339DSCF9338We 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.

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.

Have a seat

DSCF9297DSCF9298Here you can see the front seats have been installed. They have been recovered with the factory type covers and all new padding. We still have to install the front door panels and front and back glass and the new back up lights that should arrive tomorrow. Pretty cool little bug, I know the owner will enjoy it.

Back in the saddle

DSCF9248[1]DSCF9247[1]The Mustang from last weeks deer hit was completed and looking good. We replaced the stock hood with this nice piece from Cervini. We painted it black then followed that up with the Gotta Have It Green stripes with flat black side vents. The flat and shiny black really complement each other.

Mustang Sally…

DSCF9214DSCF9217DSCF9219DSCF9220DSCF9225This beautiful Mustang is in in the shop to get one of those pesky rock chips fixed. Dont you hate it when you have a brand new car and you get a rock chip in it and its the only flaw in the whole car?  Well the owner of this car just couldnt take it anymore. He dropped it off to make that chip disappear. We started by removing the hood and all of its parts. We then blocked out the chip. We then applied a few coats of high build primer to seal that area up. Once the primer was dry, we blocked that out yet again and sanded the rest of the hood for painting. Once in the booth Paul worked his magic making this hood look as good as new. Tomorrow we will put this all back together and off to its owner it will go.

Dang deer

DSCF8954DSCF8955DSCF8956DSCF8958Long time readers to the site may remember this car from a couple of years ago. The owner brought this to us a couple of years ago wanting a different look for her 2008 Mustang GT California Special. We were happy to oblidge. She wanted to remove the factory California Special side decals and replace them with a more noticible painted on stripe. Well, while we were at it, we also laid out a single wide stirpe with pinstirpes on the hood, roof, trunk and bumpers. It really stood out. Well the other evening a deer crossed her path and unfortunately it wanst moving fast enough and it got wacked.  We will be replacing the fender, bumper and head light. Parts are on order and should be here by the end of the week.
