A high quality finish requires high quality preparation.

After our body technicians have completed structural, mechanical, and sheet metal work, your vehicle goes to the refinishing department. The focus is on duplicating the original color, durability, and appearance of your automobile.

 

 


Refinishing

Restoring your car to a "factory-new" appearance is a multi-step process. After the damaged metal and plastic body areas are repaired, a variety of cleaners and etchers are applied to condition the surface and to ensure adhesion of the paint system. This is followed by primers which fill crevices and protect against corrosion and rust. After sanding, another primer/sealer is applied to provide a uniform, satin-smooth surface. The color coat is then applied, often followed by a clear coat.




 

PPG Assurance of Quality

Our expert painters will precisely match the color of your vehicle using a combination of factory color codes and a computerized measuring system. To provide our customers with the most durable finish possible, we use PPG paint. PPG paint is used by OEM manufacturers such as Jaguar. The PPG refinish line dates back to 1902. Since then PPG has grown into one of the leading suppliers worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 

Our Paint Booth

All painting is done in a modern semi-downdraft paint booth at our Broward County collision repair center. The downdraft flow of air prevents overspray from occuring and keeps dust out of the finish.
