Repair aged crackingOld welded areas cracked. We did not remove headliner, so we removed old filler and used duraglass to fill.
Fender in primeRepair feather edged and urethane primed.
Cracked fender beadOpened up crack, then welded.
Third brake lamp areaThis area had much filler and cracked. Another reason for cracking paint is not sanding good in the corners and applying too much paint in that area. When the paint drys, and in time, it can shrink and pull away from the inside corners. We repaired it with duraglass, coaxed primer on, sanded thoroughly, and did not apply excessive paint material to this area.
Blocking roof repairUrethane primer is guide coated (mist of black) to expose imperfections, then block sanded.
Stone chipsLower grill had stone chips. These happen when the vehicle is driver to shows.
Fender refinishingFender painted in booth. Where ever possible color is blended out within the panel. Here it is panel painted. In our mixing room, we make our own colors and perform spray outs. This allows us to adjust the color to match.
Masking of vehicleThis sedan was masked numerous times to keep dirt out of paint and over spray off car.
FinishedWe saved the existing paint job, at a fraction of the cost of dismantling and complete refinishing.
