I have been thinking for some time about initiating a blog portion to the website. Having a blog with specific posts will allow us to better update clients/readers on our current builds and other happenings in the shop, as well as shed more light on what is going on in the pictures that get posted in the Current and Finished Builds pages. This way one might achieve a greater understanding of what each project requires to get the job done.
In one instance, take a look here..
Just looking at the picture you can see paint ground away, some body filler, a crooked fender bead, and some brass. What you cannot tell from the picture is that the fender was damaged by the previous owner backing out of his garage, scratching the paint and resulting in his decision to sell the car. The new owner requested it to be fixed properly, which brings us to this picture here. We ground away the paint to fix the metal and miniscule stress crack in the fender before redoing body work and getting it ready for paint again.
See? Without the back story it's hard to tell what exactly is happening in the picture...was this like this when it arrived? Is this the current body work that is going to get primered and painted over? What is that gold-ish colored stuff?
This is generally what the blog will be used for, in addition to technical coverage of any new product/kits we happen to use in the shop - some back story mixed with plenty of pictures. Emphasis on plenty of pictures.
