Getting a few little odds and ends cleaned up for when the Panel Van get's back from the paint shop.

Cleaning up the License plate bar.
Cleaning up some little rust on the backup camera mounting.
Readying wiring for the new side markers.
Cleaning up the reverse lights and fog lights.

How long will that paint job take? The blue top is going to be glossy? (Clearcoats??)

Stopped by the shop yesterday to pick up my small emergency starter battery pack I got for Christmas.
It actually had 2 USB ports, so I can use it to charge our phones.

Day 3 of the ice storm power outage.
Apparently we had little wire damage down this street, as late this evening the power came back on.

While I was at the shop, I took 2 pictures.
Looks like he is really doing a good job smoothing out all the drips and runs from the quick paint job 2 years ago.

THANKS!
I FOUND 2 WING EMBLEMS.


UPDATE: Turns out all they broke was the arm of the emblem!


So, the Panel Cruiser is going to the paint booth today, and I get this phone call.....you know that means something has happened...


They disassembled and broke the hear hatch switch assembly!!!!
This is what mine looked like. Even the emblem on mine was chrome/silver.




Anyone got a line on one???

BLUE & CLEAR ON!
They will wet sand an buff this first, before spraying the gray, in order not to accidentally disturb the lower half Flat Metallic Gray....as that will be a Flat Clearcoat also.

This particular image is really close to what the Blue looks like in person.




The following shots are from a friend's phone.
