In this course, students will apply advanced collision refinishing training in "real world" situations. They will perform light to medium level refinishing operations on college-owned vehicles. Solid and metallic base-coat/clear-coat and single stage paint systems will be areas of focus. Panel refinishing, blends, and "cut-ins" will be some of the topics covered. Also covered are crucial final detail and inspection information that the modern refinish technician must know in order to effectively release a vehicle back to its owner. Additional topics such as interior and exterior care, buffing, glazing, waxing, overspray removal, leak detection, engine bay reconditioning and preparing vehicles for resale, will be covered. This course contains material previously taught in CRT 220 and CRT 260.
