Another Weekend at the shop

Overview:
New organization
Patches is going black, bondoing is never ending!!
Turbo Swappage between Miata and Ross’s CA S14

Ian did some organization at the shop while I was in classes and at work on Friday; things are a bit more efficient now. Spent most of Saturday trying to finish Patches’s body work so I can move on to the next car. Decided rolling was cool, but I’m running out of time so I’m now going to spray it black. Ian and Ross swapped turbos. Somehow the Miata’s turbo decided to take a shit in between coming off the Miata and going onto Ross’s S14. We knew it needed to be rebuilt though. Took Ross’s car home on the trailer, three people weren’t enough to get it all the way on the trailer non-running so we employed Yuki to pull it the rest of the way!

After hours of electrically sanding this car I gave up on roll-on painting style for now. Theres a place for it, but not when you don't have time

Good thing I took a few sculpting classes. Patches's rear fender getting some love.
