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.   West Coast Body and Paint’s goal is to leave your car looking great, feeling smooth, and lasting a long time.

Why is the professional preparation process important?

Because it means 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, we do it right from the start.

Auto Body Surface Preparation

Below are a few of the steps we take to prepare for your car’s paint job.  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.

“You can tell that Jaider (owner) takes pride in the work that he does. My car had old faded paint and he matched it PERFECTLY! I happily drive from Oxnard because i know my car is in good hands with Jaider at West Coast Body & Paint.”

Ourestimates are always free and you are welcome to come by our shop anytime or make an appointment.  We know that many clients like the convenience of sending pictures of their car and request an estimate; but, in reality an estimate by this means is not really reliable.  Why?  Because the estimate will either be too high or too low.  In order to assess the damage and give an estimate, a car needs to be seen by a professional and in person.  This insures that the estimate is as accurate as possible, not too high or too low.  For more information click here.
