Automotive Technology second year students are working on projects ranging from electrical and suspension to wiring lights among other assignments.
They have rebuilt a Mustang front end, completed oil changes, worked on the suspension in a Honda car, replaced struts and shocks on multiple vehicles, repaired exhaust systems, and wired stereos in vehicles.
First year students have just finished studying emission systems and also have repaired some exhaust. They installed headers on a Chevy truck and performed oil changes. They are currently working on a ‘48 Dodge car fixing a brake leak, doing a tune up and replacing a tire.
Some students have helped paint breaching doors built by the Lexington High School welding class for the Nebraska State Patrol. The Nebraska State Patrol Swat will demonstrate how breaching doors are used for the training of new officers.
Both groups of students have been working on the ‘48 Dodge and a ‘68 Barracuda. Having the capability to work on these older vehicles is a great opportunity to see how vehicles have changed over the years.
