Services Refinishing

After our body technicians have completed structural, mechanical, and sheet metal work, your vehicle heads over to the refinishing department. The focus is on duplicating the original color, durability, and appearance of you automobile.

Our expert paint technicians will precisely match the color of your vehicle using a combination of factory color codes and a computerized color camera. To provide our customers with the most durable finish possible.

 

Refinishing Process

Cleaning

A variety of cleaners and etchers are applied to condition the surface and to ensure the absolute best adhesion of the paint to the body.

Priming

This is followed by primers which fill any crevices and protect against future corrosion and rust so your paint job will last longer.

Smoothing

After sanding, another primer/sealer is applied to provide a uniform, satin-smooth surface for a perfect finish once your vehicle is painted.

Painting

The color coat is then applied in our state-of-the-art Paint & Cure booth. Typically, a clear coat will also be applied on top of the paint.


Paint & Cure Booth

All painting is done in a modern downdraft paint & cure booth. The downdraft flow of air prevents overspray from occuring and keeps dust out of the finish. The booth is then heated to 140 degrees for 30 minutes to cure the paint to factory standards for durability and appearance
