You want it nice? I’ll gladly make it as nice as you’ll let me. Anything from wet blocking a show car flat, polishing it out all the way to removing scratches on your daily driver. #mitchhendersondesigns #sanding #polishing #showcars #dailydrivers #surfacecorrection #orangepeelremoval #scratchremoval

Those random moments that you enjoy the job. Seeing the image become more crisp and clear. Some come easier than others, then there’s the ones you really have to really fight for. Those are the moments that keep me coming back. #work #gooddaysandbaddays #itsnoteasy #neverthesame #everydayisdifferent #myjob #alwaystryingtodobetter #sometimesifail #sometimesidont #butialwaystryhard #mitchhendersondesigns

Lighting makes all the difference. Fluorescent works great for cutting, buffing, then super bright focused L.E.D for correcting and dialing in the polish. What do you guys use, let me know. #lighting #contrastlighting #sandingandbuffing #polishing #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist

Two of the roughest but most improved painted vehicle surfaces I ever worked on. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #pastwork #salvagework #cutandpolish #correctionwork #majorimprovements #hardwork #donedidit

I really wish I was busy enough to make the investment into having a climate controlled room big enough for 3 or 4 cars. Some place where I could have my lighting set up, all my equipment organized to perform my work at a very high quality, consistent level day in and day out. #goals #workgoals #polishing #paintspecialist #detailwork #correctionwork #mitchhendersondesigns

Stunning ‘57 👍🏻🤘🏻🏁RepostBy @mitchhendersondesigns: "I had a good time working on this one. It really is rewarding to watch something get better with each step. Even more so when the owner understands and appreciates this is no over night process. As I stated in a earlier post this car was painted in the very spot it is currently sitting, not in a state of the art paint booth with the latest or greatest equipment. If you were to see it at a outdoor show or indoors under unforgiving lights you wouldn’t know though. To me all of those considerations make it that much more cool. I look very forward to doing his next tri 5 project. #homebuilthotrod #ownerbuilt #sprayedwhereitsits #proudtohelp #funjob #cutandpolish #surfacecorrection #paintcorrection #matrix #red #slick #glossy #reflective #49hours #results #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #ontothenextone

The tec 9 Camaro was built to be so much more than “just low” or just a show car. We spent so much time to ensure this car performed, handled correctly. It was a real let down we were never allowed to prove it as we had planned. Interesting fact though, after the car was held from us it accumulated approximately 8k plus miles extremely rough miles and was wrecked pretty severely. Even so, all of the safety equipment, engineering built into the car kept the inexperienced operator safe from any injury and the only damage done to the chassis was cosmetic. The body wasn’t so lucky. Regardless, I’m very proud that the car held up like it was designed to. #somuchmorethanaprettyface #mhdbuilt #mitchhendersondesigns #history #idiotproof #engineering #fabrication #formandfunction #builtwithsafetyinmind #doneright

Having a good time preserving patina with @redsroundeyes crew cab. This truck has so much cool character. #preservinghistory #patina #polish #elbowgrease #mitchhendersondesigns #redsroundeyes #c10trucks #progress

Lights, Camera, Action. The before, during, and after images of tuning texture, eliminating flaws, and polishing out the worked surface. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #eliminatingflaws #makingpaintbetter #clean #crisp #reflection #shine #gloss #dfw #results

That year that 5 of us were tasked with rebuilding a 63’ and 65’ convertible continental’s from the ground up among 8-10 other various projects all at once. Looking back, I’d say we were pretty damn efficient. #mitchhendersondesigns #carbuildingdays #goodteam #takingcareofbusiness

Last week was a busy one! Working days on the 57 cut and polish project in the far southeast corner of DFW, then working a night shift doing repair work under a super tight deadline on this Lexus in North Dallas. My back was very sore but it felt great to get it all done and help make it happen. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #stayingbusy #happy #positiveresults #polishing #buffing #workinghard

It’s not always classic or show cars. This mornings job was this lifted F-150 that was taken off road and got scratched up by tree limbs and brush. The sides looked as good as new in about 3 hrs. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #removingscratches #repair #goodasnew

Late post of the 57 150 project from last week finished up. The fresh cut and polish came out nice. #paintspecialist #mitchhendersondesigns #cutandpolish #freshenedup #4step #muchbetter

Spot checking areas with the inspection light to see how close or far off I am from having the panel right. #rupespenlight #inspection #gettingthere #progress #mitchhendersondesigns #57chevrolet #150 #cutandpolish

Areas that drive me crazy when they aren’t done to the level the rest of the surfaces on the car. I completely understand why most paint shops try to avoid this area, but I feel it makes all the difference in the world in the finished product when they are slicked out. #driprail #edges #timeconsuming #risky #butworthit #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #cutandpolish #dialinginedges

First pass with compound and the rotary on the deck lid. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #cutandpolish #57chevy

First test panel on Monday morning. The car was painted a few months ago in this very spot. It looked nice, but like anything else it cured, pinched up, still had some scratches and could use some nibbing in spots to remove some left over trash. I lightly blocked it with 1500, 2000, 3000 then compounded it all out with the rotary. The owner was immediately very happy with the difference. So, it was decided this was going to be the route taken with the rest of the car. So far, so good. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #slingingshinepimpinpolish

I should be finishing up this 57 Chevrolet today. I have had a great time working on it and watching the major improvements unfold. The finish is much flatter, cleaner. It now has very consistent, crisp reflection all over. #mitchhendersondesigns #paintspecialist #cutandpolish #buffing #polishing #majorimprovement #progress #muchbetter
