A little shiny work from this week

DSCF1069DSCF1066DSCF1067DSCF1068The owner of this 2003 Silverado wanted to freshen things up a bit. He bought the truck new and since it still ran great but looked bad he decided to paint it. After discussing his options we came up with a plan and got to work. We started by removing the lights, bumpers, handles, moldings and mirrors. We then sanded the whole truck down and fixed the very few small dents that it had. We then washed it a couple of times to make sure we had a clean truck, clean jambs and clean engine bay. We then masked off the ares that were not getting paint and started spraying. A few coats of  PPG black followed by a couple coats of PPG’s high solids clear coat and we have very nice Silverado that shines better than new.

We handled it.

DSCF9406This 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.

Ready to roll

DSCF9198DSCF9197This Silverado was in the shop to get a pretty big dent in the front door and rocker panel fixed. After a little massaging from JMC we were able to work the dent out and get it all painted up. Here you can see it all washed up and ready to go home

Driveway mishap.

We are ALL guilty of this, not looking when backing out of your driveway. After you have done it 7298 times, you just know how to do it without really looking. This is all fine and dandy until someone stops by for a visit and parks behind you and you forget. Fortunately for the truck seen here, the damage was not really all that bad. As a matter of fact, we can repair all the damage to this one with out having to replace any parts. We did have to use the stud welder on the fender to pull the bigger dents out to minimize the amount of filler used. The other dents were long, but pretty shallow. You can see from the pictures that we were able to get all the dents repaired today and even had time to prime it in. Tomorrow we will block out the primer and sand the rest of the side to prepare it for paint.
