Collision Repair Completes Project for the City of Sunbury

The SUN Area Technical Institute Collision Repair class of 2013 repaired and refinished a 2001 Chevrolet pick-up truck for the City of Sunbury. Students disassembled the vehicle and removed dents from the body. The body was then sanded and prepared to change the color from white to yellow using a two stage base-coat, clear- coat paint system.

Present in photos of the completed project are Mike Bordner, Public Works Supervisor for the city of Sunbury, and Ken Long of the Sunbury Public Works Department.
