As the body is removed from the chassis the parts and pieces are bagged and tagged then cleaned and restored so they may be reused during reassembly. The body will be placed on our Steelcrafters Body Roll Over Jig. This device holds a body or frame in place at working height so it can be rotated and then held in position as repairs are performed. Complete cars can be mounted and then rolled over so repairs or paint work can be performed to the bottom sides.

Once the new body was in our possession we sanded and repaired all the minor dings and applied seam sealer to all the open gaps. Epoxy primer and surfacer was then applied before painting.
