A quality paint job will have your car looking good and you feeling good. A quality paint job also helps to protect your car from rust and other weather damage. When the time comes for your car to be painted, be sure you choose an auto body repair shop that offers factory-quality paint service. But how can you tell if the auto body shop you’re considering offers factory-quality paint service?
• Prepping: A quality auto paint job involves sanding down the existing paint on your car to the metal. The exterior, door jams, engine bay, and all other areas must be prepped to prepare for new paint. This preparation is necessary in order to give your car a long-lasting coat of paint that looks good and protects it from the elements.
• Priming. Once your car has been sanded down to the metal, it needs to be primed. Priming the exterior of your car protects the metal from the elements and prepares the car for the paint finish. Without primer, the paint color would show a tint from the metal surface of your car and would chip and peel more easily.
• Painting. Now your car is ready for paint. A quality auto body repair shop will have a special room free of dust and debris to paint a smooth finish onto your car. Factory quality paint jobs will include at least two coats, often more. Added coats are essential for even coverage and lasting durability.
