The Auto Body Shop

This area of our shop -although not beautiful- serves its purpose,  it is our:

  • Storage area
  • Metalworking area
  • Sanding and taping area
  • Finishing area

Clients should not enter this area of the auto body shop for safety and insurance reasons.

Storage

Our body shop has an inventory of commonly used parts and supplies.  Mechanical fasteners, tape, solvents, sanding disks, etc. they are stored inside the body shop.

Metalworking

This is the area where the vehicle’s frame and body panels are repaired.  No matter the task, we have the correct tools for better results.  For automotive bodywork we have hammers, dollies, power tools, hand tools, and air compressors.  We also have frame straightening equipment like stud welder, slide hammers, cutting tools, shears, plasma cutters, and welding equipment.

Sanding and Taping

Sanding and taping is used when preparing a vehicle’s surface for refinishing.  Equipment includes sanding boards, sanding blocks, grinders, and sanders.  Minor surface imperfections are sanded and cars are wiped down with a surface preparation solvent.  The dust created when sanding old paint is a health hazard.  Therefore, we use proper respiratory protection and ask that our clients not enter this area.

Finishing

We also use the auto body shop area to remove masking tape, reinstall parts, detail cars, etc.  The paint finish includes compound polishing, buffing, and minor repairs.
