Lots of things going on here at Butler Community College. Everything from body repair, painting to buffing. The students are learning a wide variety of skills. Take a look below to learn more about what’s going on.
Jenni has just completed a door that will be used for training. This door was removed from a vehicle then Jenni and Devin built a stand for the door to attach. Next Jenni cut an access hole in the outside of the door to allow students to see how the inside of a door operates, which includes: window regulator, power locks, door latch, linkage rods, and various clips used. Props or trainers like this helps the students have a clearer understanding of how things works.
Yes, this class does involve some classroom and computer lab work. Here they are in the lab doing a research assignment.
James is practicing his spray pattern, overlap and technique while spraying an epoxy coating.
Devin is learning how to polish paint. Slow process, but makes the car look great. There are a number of reasons to color sand and buff a paint job. For instance, if you have a little dirt, a run, orange peel or just to get that show quality look.
Rodrigo is repairing a damaged door. He is in the process of straightening the metal back to its original shape.
