1931 Roadster Restoration Project

Here's my latest project:  1931 Roadster Restoration

I received a 1931 Model T Roadster on November 2nd, 2015.  It came in on a tow truck mounted to a wooden-box dolly for easy maneuver around.  Stephen and I started by wire-brushing the entire body to knock off the rust.  Then next Stephen and I took the grinder to it all over the entire Roadster. Then we applied 2- 1/2 gallons of bondo on the entire body as owner requested.  Next, Ron molded the bondo to the groves in the body, grill, front hood and the deck lid.  After working and shaving the bondo to draw lines in the Roadster body, Ron began prepping it to be put into primed next in black primer inside and out the Roadster body.

Mechanical and Collision All in One Small Independent Shop

Hello Bloggers

Today November 21, 2015,  I working on a 2000 SL2.  It was towed in Thursday, November 19, 2015, with a "No Start Issue".  The owner ran the original alternator til it killed the battery.  So, needless to say I had to check for a charge on the battery first.  After which, I found that the alternator was shorted out.  My first instinct was to check the battery.  I tried to charge it while connected to the vehicle, and no good --- completely dead.  Then, I removed the battery from the vehicle and charged it all day Friday.  First thing Saturday morning I purchased a new alternator from the local parts store and installed it in the Saturn.  Now, with a fully charged battery and a new alternator the owners were back on the road to Union County, Monroe, N.C.

After the Saturn, I started working on a small job on a 2004 Honda Civic.  It needed a new window regulator replaced.  I took the inner door panel off of the driver's side door and changed the window regulator.  - another happy car owner.
