1999 Porsche 911
This is a Speed Yellow driver that had a little mishap with a rock.
This vehicle had a rock thrown through the window and the door got a bit of a dent.
This is the grab portion of the handle after clear coat.
Here is what the door looked like when it came in. OUCH!
Here we have everything removed to start sanding the entire side of the vehicle down to get it ready for the paint booth.
In certain circumstances it is feasible to utilize a used or junk yard part. In this case we were able to save the customer and insurance company almost $2,000 utilizing the salvage yard door assembly. What most people do not realize is the entire door must be dismantled of all its' components for painting. Then we must dismantle the original door that got removed to utilize all the original controls. Why you ask? Because with a junk yard part we do not know if the window motor and all other components were exposed to water damage. Nothing worse then spending 4 hours of work to put everything together and find out something does not work! All you body men know exactly what that is all about.
We see too many vehicles that other body shops repair and paint that they do not paint the handle when painting the door and it is obvious when done. We painted the handle after dismantling for a proper paint job.
The side of this Porsche got painted to make sure that the color would match seamlessly for a perfect paint job.
She is back together going through a thorough QC process.
