– Quick Reminder

One of the many advantages of having an actual auto mechanic teacher on the team is that he can easily tell us what new and amateur mechanics really need and pinpoint what we could create to help them.

This week, we were talking about how difficult it can be when you just got out of mechanic school and you’re in the real world and now you have to remember all those technical facts from school. The kind of facts, laws or rules, that after a couple of years on the job, you don’t even have to think about, but at first, it was a real hassle to memorize. For mechanics, it must be the Ohm’s law – I remember writing it on a napkin and keeping it in one of the top drawers in my tool chest with a couple of other formulas and important notes I didn’t want to forget.

Well, apparently, for apprentice auto body repairers it’s the correct amount of primer/base/clear coat to use depending on which body part they’re painting. So, we created a quick reminder to give to the students at school that they can keep somewhere safe and reach out to when needed.

And, as usual, why not share it with you!

Also, I chose to feature an awesome Tesla so it looks good enough that you can pin it on a wall somewhere in your paint prep room. 😉

So, here it is! Enjoy!
