The end result of your paint job relies mostly on the quality of sanding.  It is what separates the men from the boys in the bodywork world, it is what separates your car between a new-looking car and just an average paint job.

Sanding a Car

Sanding prepares your car’s surface for refinishing.  Minor surface imperfections are sanded, and your vehicle is wiped down with a surface solvent.  Emblems and other trim pieces are generally removed.

Dry Sanding

Sanding is all about finding the imperfections and correcting all the mistakes and small dings or scratches on your car.  In the end when we check your entire car or damaged area until we find not one.

Wet Sanding

Wet sanding clear coats will bring out a deeper shine and gloss to your car when followed by our professional buffing and polishing.

Block Sanding

Block sanding is when we use a flat object (block of wood) and sandpaper to obtain a flat surface.

Color Sanding

To obtain an extremely smooth finish and a high gloss from paints, the final finish is sanded with wet or dry fine sandpaper.  Color sanding helps remove imperfections.  On some finishes, the next-to-last coat is carefully color sanded before a final coat is applied.  On other finishes, only the final coat is color sanded.
