The second semester has started with a load of work In Auto Body Repair. We currently are finishing the 1980 Camaro, we are working on the Sandwich Fire Department 100-year-old fire truck, and we have just finished up a 2006 Ford Mustang repaint.

The Camaro owned by second-year student Brian M. is in the home stretch. We have done a lot of work on this car. After taking the car apart and beginning our repair we found some panels that need to be replaced. So the car will now have a new trunk floor and rear body panel. We are just a few days away from getting this car into primer, and then final paint and assembly.  

The Ford Mustang came into the school silver. The customer wanted us to repaint it another color. After having some issues with the paint that was originally going to be used, we went with another color and all went smoothly after that.  

The fire truck for Sandwich Fire Department was dropped off with the intention to restore the paint back to glory. We will be repainting the whole truck along with doing some 23k gold leaf work and pinstriping to make it look like the original beauty it was. We will be working with the Welding and Fabrication class to fix a few issues with the front fenders of the truck.  

Just a few months to go and we are swamped with the work already in the shop and we have more work coming in. Hopefully we have enough days in the school year to complete all the projects.
