At the stage the vehicle is taken to our paint department.
All surfaces that were repaired are sanded to proper smoothness then sprayed with primer. Parts that were replaced sometimes require primer as well. After primer is complete, the areas are sanded again and checked for a smooth surface.
The step before masking, is referred to as “wet sanding”.
This is when the technician uses a very fine sandpaper soaked
in water to give the the perfect finish prior to paint.
The final step in the paint preparation is called “masking”.
This is when all areas where paint should not be applied are masked off to be kept clean.
After paint preparation all surfaces are checked again by our production manager for a perfect surface prior to a base paint coat.
One of the most crucial aspects of the repair process is color match. We have state of the art equipment to make this process fast, and ensure an accurate paint color match. After we have achieved the correct variance for color, the vehicle is moved to the heated paint booth. When paint is applied in the booth it prevents cross contamination from particles in the air, and gives the perfect temperature to promote adhesion.
Quality Inspection #2
Once all coats of paint have been applied, the surface is checked for imperfections in the paint.
