Express Auto Body Repair
The goal of the paint department is to restore your vehicle to its factory finish and correct color match. With proper preparation, including priming, sanding, and sealing, your vehicle paint will look as beautiful as it did when you first drove it off of the lot. If you only need one or two areas repainted, the technician should be able to closely match the paint to the original so that the repaired area is virtually unnoticeable.
The spot to be repaired must first be thoroughly cleaned using mild solvents to remove any residual wax, oil or grime. Once cleaned, the area is lightly wet-sanded to prepare the old clearcoat to accept the fresh paint so it will chemically and physically bond to the existing paint. After wet-sanding, the spot is sprayed with a primer paint which is designed to adhere to the bare metal surface. After the primer has cure sufficiently, the area is next sprayed with the color-matched paint. The color is blended out over a somewhat larger area of the existing painted surface so that any color differential is blended out.
The auto paint touch-up is completed by spraying clearcoat over the repaired area and further blending it into the surrounding existing paint. When the repair is completed it will not be noticeable.Go To Top
Airbrush Touch Up
Auto paint touch-ups can be efficiently and expertly performed by a trained technician. Depending upon the size of the area to be touch-up, various methods can be use to perform the work. Very small paint chips can be repaired using touch-up paint and a very tiny brush. If the area to be repaired is a bit larger it can repaired by spraying paint using an airbrush or a small touch-up spray gun.
Paint color is typically designated as a paint code imprinted on a decal or tag which is located somewhere on the vehicle in an unobtrusive spot such as on the outside firewall or a door jamb. This pant code allows the auto body supply shop to mix a small quantity of paint to exactly match the original color.
Airbrush touch up is a “cosmetic” repair that will help prevent rust for a period of time.
We use the same process for color match as with any paint process.Go To Top
Full Detail Services
A full detail will clean and condition your interior, plus polish and shine up the exterior to get your car, truck or SUV back in showroom condition. Your paint undergoes a complete stripping of contaminants by using a clay-bar system. Clay bars are used by detailing, automotive reconditioning and auto body shop professionals to remove paint over-spray, tree sap, and industrial pollutants from the vehicle’s painted surfaces. Clay bars also work on glass, plastics and many metals. Then, those minor scratches are cleaned up with a high-speed polish. Next, a glaze finish is applied to restore a deep shine. Finally the job is completed with a sealer wax.Go To Top

Full Collision Repair
Full Collision Repair is a technique that restores a damaged vehicle to its original condition. The Auto Body Repair entails repairing and properly matching the paint on vehicle bodies, repairing vehicle frames, and understanding mechanical, electrical and electronic systems.
Some of the processes used in Auto Body Repair are shop safety, automotive body construction, tools, welding, sheet metal repair, frame straightening, repair materials, adjusting body panels, painting and refinishing, and estimating the cost.
Auto body repair also deals in welding light-gauge motor vehicle body panels and under-frame structures. The mechanic might have to learn to repair minor and major accidents and corrosion damage, and measure, realign and repair upper body and under-frame structures.
The variety and type of auto body repair materials and tools varies with the type and size of the damage. Bondo creams and hardeners might necessitate reinforcement with fiberglass for larger holes and dents in the body.Go To Top
