This Coca Cola cooler has an interesting story. A guy showed up at our shop one day with a completely stripped cooler (as seen below). Apparently his grandfather had owned it while the man was growing up. Realizing it was in need of a makeover, the grandfather had brought the cooler to a body shop, where it had sat in a corner for 15 years.
After the grandfather had passed away in his 90s, his grandson had asked the body shop owner to finish the cooler so he could bring it home in his grandfather’s honor. Three years went by — and nothing happened. Once he realized the project just wasn’t going to be completed with this body shop, he picked up the cooler and searched online for someone else who could help.
He found MicroBlend through a Google search. After calling us up, he brought the cooler in. We finished the project for him in just two months! Ironically, we discovered that only 10 more hours of work needed to be done to get a finished product. If only he had brought the cooler to MicroBlend in the first place, he wouldn’t have had to wait 15 years!
