The Body Shop
This area of our body shop is not beautiful but it’s organized and serves its purpose. This area is our:
- Storage area
- Metalworking area
- Sanding and taping area
- Finishing area
Clients should never enter this area for safety and insurance reasons.
Our body shop has an inventory of commonly used parts and supplies. Inside the body shop mechanical fasteners, tape, solvents, sanding disks, etc. are stored.
This is the area where the vehicle’s frame and body panels are repaired. No matter the task, we have the professional tools for the best 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 Area
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.
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.
“I came in to West Coast Body & Paint for an estimate on my heavily rusted car roof. Not only was Jaider (the owner) extremely cordial he went over every step process on how he is going to fix the problem and assured me he would finish by a given time, which he delivered. My car went from looking like a bucket car to brand new! This place is definitely a body shop I trust when it comes to referring my friends and family.”

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.
