Well That’s the first day done at the paint-shop, yes that’s right my week I had booked off work has seen the first day spent the day at the paint-shop helping to prep the car for paint. I know a lot of people would think this silly as I am paying them to paint the car and I am there doing the work, but to be honest I enjoyed the day. No worries about money as this is all coming off the final end bill.
So what did I do today? I spent the entire day with thinners and rags, removing the damn wax from the car. I am sure the stuff is growing, it took hours just the clean down the capping’s. I am due back there tomorrow (weather pending) to play with the sander!
Lets just hope this help has allowed them to get the other cars finished that were clogging up the ramps (three were done today), I can see a Stag, a Honda and a Transit in the queue ahead of me, hopefully if I help tomorrow two of them will be out of the way.
In other news, it is nearly time for that yearly Billing bash, a long weekend in sunny Northamptonshire (having looked at the weather I think its going to be par for the course), but before I get away to relax I have not only the paint-shop work to do, but a possible engine swap to do on Wednesday.
