Your the man Asfand, keep us informed, any questions ask and when your ready to set up your gun, give me a little advanced notice and if you like I can call you...just to walk you through it. Sometimes it's just better to have questions answered in the moment instead of waiting between posts.

No, we used a stud welder to pull it out, body hammer for shape and used a little filler followed by two coats of SPI regular build primer. Blended the base onto the back door and onto the bumper. Cleared the rear door, quarter, and bumper with SPI euro 5000.

Customer dropped it off Monday morning and picked it up Wednesday evening.

Yeah, I like that kind of stuff from time to time to break up the routine. I could have gotten it back to him quicker, but I got held up by the tailight. I had to wait for the replacemetn to come in. I spent most of the day Monday running around getting some stuff the shop and got the paint for the car. Once we finally started on it, we had it pulled out, worked and in primer in about 3 hours. I waited til Tuesday morning to block the primer and mask everything and painted it around lunch time, buffed a little on Wednesday and sent it home.

I remember getting into discussions with other employees and even management from time to time as to which jobs where most profitable. I suggested that the jobs that where about $2,000 to $3,000 where the "gravy jobs" and that the real heavy hits like $10K and up weren't as profitable...sometimes this even get into a heated discussion.

Eventually, one Monday morning I looked at the work that was ahead of us for the week and there where 7 hits from between $1,500 and $4,000 and 3 hit's all over $10K. All the parts had been ordered and received for the smaller jobs and work could be started immediately. The 7 smaller hits where all picked up by Thursday morning, all 3 of the larger hit's where waiting for approval from the insurance company for unseen damage, rental car issues and back ordered parts (as you mentioned Kelly, waiting for parts can be a real time killer, even on a smaller job).

After that, it was self explanatory to everyone...smaller jobs are more profitable because they are in and out and room can be made for the next vehicle.

Asfand, suffice it to say...I can now see the pictures...and all I did was smile when I saw them...very nice job, especially when you take into consideration that this was your first time ever with a gun in your hand.

I'm proud of you...now I know what you meant when you said you thought you did a good job...just a hint of modest pride...be proud...as I said, I'm proud of you.

Next step is to let it cure and then we go to work with the guide coat...I did see the scratch that you mentioned...not to worry, it'll be fine.

Great Job.

Ray

I am very happy to hear that. I am glad it is moving along nicely. As always thank you for the help and guidance. I get more addicted to it as I continue.

You did the work Asfand, all I did was suggest how. Take the rest of the night off, you've earned it (have a pop...LOL)...let me know when and we can start on the next step.

It is addicting isn't it.

By the way, I saw your test patterns on the masking paper...another good job....that gun will work fine when we get to color and clear.

Asfand, something came up that I need to attend to and won't be able to call at 2 PM your time this afternoon and gotta take off in a few minutes....I sent you a PM and am posting in case you don't get email notification of a PM. I'll contact you when I'm done my family errand.

I'm back from the pressing family errand that needed immediate attention. My mother in-laws lamp works again...LOL.

If at all possible, could you post pictures (1 or 2 is fine) of a panel or two with guide coat applied. The reason I'd like to see it is, as we discussed, you don't need much, just enough to show some difference in color...and for other's who might be following your thread to know how much guide coat is enough.

Whenever and if you have time...not nearly as pressing as my mother in-laws lamp....LOL
