2015 Acura TLX: Behind the Scenes at the Body Shop, Part 2

June 11, 2015

2015 Acura TLX

After an unfortunate mishap with a wayward Camry, our 2015 Acura TLX was dispatched to the body shop. We got in to see the scenes of disassembly, and now it's time to start reconstructing the car. Here are the steps leading up to the paint room.

By now, the new rear door and left-side quarter panel are on. All areas to be painted are prepped with color-sanding. Any areas not needing paint are masked off, a prep-job that takes nearly a day itself.

The paint is mixed to match before the TLX finally goes into the big room for its makeover.

If all goes well, the TLX should be back in service by the end of this week.
