Quality Auto Paint Job

A great auto paint job is not a one-step process but consists of several stages that together produce a quality paint job.   Our shop’s goal is to leave your car looking great, feeling smooth, and lasting a long time.

Why is the beginning preparation process important?

Because it can mean the difference between a good paint job from a bad one.  A bad paint job -right from the start- has a domino effect, if one of the steps is not done correctly, you will see the problem get magnified all the way to the end.  To avoid this scenario on your car, we take our time doing each step professionally and correctly, not skipping or cutting corners, right from the start.

Auto Body Surface Preparation

Below are a few of the steps we take to prepare for your car’s paint.  Of course each car is different and each collision is different; furthermore, not all the items below may apply.

  • Dismantling / part removal
  • Removing old paint
  • Sand blasting
  • Rust applying primer
  • Body repair
  • Sanding
  • Cleaning
  • Masking

Primers and Primer Sealers

Before we apply a color coat, top coat, or finish coat on your vehicle, the bare metal or plastic surface must be properly prepared.  Primers are designed to improve paint adhesion on plastic and metal surfaces.  They also fill small imperfections and improve adhesion.  Sealers are applied to improve hold-out and seal sanding scratches.

The next step in your car’s paint job process will be the base coat (undercoat) to paint upon which the final coats will be applied.
