Are you thinking about changing the color of your car?

Things to know before you start

If you were thinking about painting the color of your car to a new color there should always be a few colors you should be cautious about. Some paints just don’t stay as clean looking as long, for example, the color black is the hardest color on a car to keep clean this is because any sort of dirt and debris that you are going to be driving in is going to show up on your paint a lot more than other colored cars. If you have any other colors on your black color vehicle the dirt and grime will stand out much more than normal. Especially with dust and dirt. This goes with white car paint as well. A lot of people think that having a white car will make it easier to keep clean but it’s actually the same case as Black. And this is because most things that you will encounter on the road or not white. This can give your car a white brownish tint we’re not taken care of. The easiest paint color to keep clean actually happens to be a champagne color. This is because the dust blends in with the car allowing it to appear cleaner longer.

After paint care

After your car is freshly painted you’re gonna wanna leave it alone for about a month. Somethings that are acceptable to do would be to wash the car by hand because car washing machines could apply to much pressure and take the paint up. You should always avoid wax in your car for three months and dry wiping. This is because waxing and polishing your car could possibly and potentially cause damage to the freshly added coat of paint. The paint needs to cure and it could be some time before you go back to your regular detailing habits on your car. You should always also try to avoid any harsh chemicals on your car surface.

We take pride in our work so much that we guaranteed for life.

Our process

Every car is a different situation, requiring different attention in different ways. We know things happen on accident and they’re not intentional. For example, you park your car in a parking lot any shopping cart hits it or someone parks next to your endings it with the door. Stuff happens that we just can’t control. Here at Sam’s auto body and paint, we work on the Entire area assessing the damage as needed. We then go and paint the vehicle blending it in with the surrounding area making sure it looks exactly how it used to before.

For vehicle damage from an accident or collision, we always give it a complete rundown. Checking for any unseen damage that could be hazardous down the road trying to save you as much as possible. For example, if your car was hit in a weird spot we might cut out that part of the body and re-weld a new piece in to take care of that whole area. We then blend and paint the car in that area completely torn apart, getting inside and behind everything. Or if it’s just the front bumper and it’s cracked we would recommend purchasing a new one and paining it ourselves to help match the cars current color. Because over time in the sun your paint color starts to slowly change from where from the sun. Having one of our professional autobody painters repair and paint your vehicle will have it looking amazing again.

After Painting care for your vehicle.

After you have your vehicle painted by an auto body paint shop they should always tell you a few things. The first thing would be not to do any sort of intense cleaning to your vehicles paint for about 30 days. You want to let everything settle so that way you can’t peel up any pain. The car should always be buffed when it is ready to be and should be washed with soft cloths.

How Much Does it Cost to Paint a Car in Phoenix, AZ?

Tags : 

This is going to sound like a topic, but in an increasingly globalized world in which everything is on the internet, if we try to do a search for how to paint a car in a professional way we find a lot of tutorials that give us tips to paint the vehicle yourself with “professional results.”

But unfortunately, no matter how much they promise you, no matter how much skill and implication you dedicate, and no matter how much material you bought, the result will never be worthy of a factory car. Neither for quality of finish nor for durability.

Repairs are Simplified

A few years ago, and also now but to a lesser extent, going to the trade school to receive the necessary training to be a vehicle painter almost guaranteed you a job, and that guild’s devotion to their work made the simple task of painting a car as the last step of repair in a handicraft.

Today, in an economic context where economies of scale is popular, with the prices of the cheapest parts of vehicles are mass-produced and globally-distributed, even sharing platforms with other brands, repairs are increasingly simplified.

The work that the plater used to do based on working the metal to take it to its original state is now often limited to changing the panel to a new one, or it is filled with a few kilos of putty. A more drastic but cheaper repair if we talk about total costs.

Painting a Car is not Cheap

Painting a car is not a cheap process if we stick to the prices of brands or companies specializing in painting vehicles. But why? Well, for the work to be of quality it is necessary to have, in addition to the personnel with the appropriate qualification, the material, and the facilities.

The price of painting is approximately only a quarter of the cost of a job well done.

The price of the paint can be around, depending on the price that can be achieved and the quality of the materials, between 400 and 700 dollars. The big difference in price lies in the amount of work hours spent on preparing the body.

The working hours exclusively for the painting process range from 17 to 22, to which we would have to add another 3 or 5 hours for the disassembly and assembly of parts, pilots, etc.

They also estimate that with a price between 70 and 100 dollars per hour of work in good brand dealers in Phoenix, the total amount could rise to a range that goes from 1000 dollars to 2000 dollars, plus VAT and more Materials price.

In any case, this would be in a hypothetical situation in which the car plate was perfect, without having to repair or mask anything. Simply disassemble, prepare and paint. To get to know the right price you will have to take the car to the workshop and they can evaluate it in detail.

What is needed for a professional paint job?

Although there are many offers of “professional painters” that leave cars as new, it is vital that we do not get carried away by excessively good offers. It may be that cheap jobs can pay off at first, it is possible that if we look closely we will find details that give away a mediocre job that possibly in the not too distant future begins to show why it was so cheap.

Sometimes we simplify our reasoning about the prices of things thinking exclusively about the cost of materials, but many more things have to be taken into account in painting work. The cost of painting is only about a quarter of the price of a job well done. Let’s talk about them.

Qualified staff

Perhaps this is the only point in common between those who do professional painting work and those who do not. A qualified painter, with all his qualifications, his skill and his experience can paint cars in his house, but there he doesn’t have everything he needs to make the finish really good.

Professional painters usually receive training courses from manufacturers of paint products on the new materials used. Their experience thus increases and they can undertake cutting-edge work that a “normal” painter may not know how to do exactly, what blowing pressure to use, exact proportions of the mixture.

Auto Painting

Material for Repairs

Welding equipment, putty, orbital sanding machines, proper lighting, masks, suits, glasses, gloves, paper and tape to cover. Many elements are required that make the difference between something well done and something simply done.

Surely you have ever seen a vehicle that had part of the exhaust pipe painted in the same color as the bodywork, right? That is a job just done, not well done.

Auto Car Elevator

To leave everything ready before painting with an elevator can make things much easier. Can you do a good job without an elevator? Of course, but they can also be done without the specific tools of some brands, although it is not the most appropriate precisely.

Paint booth

The booths are possibly the most expensive and, at the same time, vital material that we are going to find throughout the process. Also known as paint ovens, the booths have a double function. On the one hand, they maintain an environment free of particles since they absorb the air and filter it to prevent both the impurities in suspension from the environment being deposited in the pieces that we want to treat and that they go outside.

On the other hand, the booths maintain a constant temperature inside to control or accelerate the drying processes of the paint. Another relevant function is the good lighting inside the cabin to have an impression as accurate as possible of the state of work we are doing.

Pneumatic installation

Needless to say, but to paint we need air to throw the paint from the gun to the part we are working with. But not only that, because the tools like drills, radials or sanders that we can use in the repair process also work with air.

With a compressor and a hose we can manage, of course, but professionals need an environment where they have air intakes to connect to depending on the work area they are using. In addition, to power the entire installation without running out of pressure, in the professional workshops the typical compressor with wheels is not used, an industrial one is needed.

This is the painting process

Preparing the surface

The first step in painting a car is to prepare the surface. Applying paint hands on a careless surface is a guarantee of imminent disgust. Either by undertaking a repair or by rejuvenating the appearance of the body, the sheet must be treated.

If the surface is not well finished, putty and sand should be applied until we have a uniform finish. The sanding process of the putty has its substance and so that the paint that we are going to apply later grips correctly and does not reveal impurities, we must sand from coarser to a finer grain. Ideally, start with a P-80 grit sandpaper and finish with a P-240, passing between them a P-150.

Before painting, prepare

And now that we have the surface with a perfect finish we start painting. Well no, it’s still too soon for that. Before we have to leave the surface even more perfect and for this, we are going to use the rig.

Painting a car is more than spraying paint. First, you have to repair, prepare and homogenize the surface

The rig is a product that we will apply on the caulked surface that acts thanks to its mixing with a catalyst. After allowing it to dry during the hours indicated by the manufacturer (about 8 hours usually), it must be sanded with a very fine grade to give it a perfect finish and equalize the entire surface by homogenizing the parts of sheet metal with which they are masked, for example. Now it works with even finer grain: P-400, P-600 and P-1000.

When everything is ready you have to clean the piece completely, first removing solid waste with a good blow and then passing a cloth with a degreasing agent. So that the particles suspended in the air do not deposit again in the piece to be painted, it is necessary to have a booth with a particle filtration system.

Time to paint

With everything ready, it’s time to apply the paint. Obviously the first of all is that the color chosen is appropriate. If we want an identical finish to the series we will have to know exactly the tone, and for this we can resort to a sticker that is placed in some hidden place of the cabin as the frame of the doors where the color code of the painting is shown.

The paint is applied in successive layers , the first one being a layer applied very smoothly. This is done to discover imperfections and to ensure the good grip of the paint. In case any mistake has been made it is always easier to solve if the first layer is light.

After allowing the first one to dry according to the indications in a controlled environment without particles in the air and with a homogeneous temperature, the rest of the layers are applied.

The final bit: varnish

Fresh black paint job!

To provide a shine that dazzles as soon as you take it out of the workshop you have to use a good varnish that enhances the work that has been done during this time. Typically, two coats of varnish are applied but allowing to dry well between hands.

If all this we have told you is done step by step and with the appropriate materials we will have guaranteed a first level result for the vehicle, but of course, that to achieve it we must have all the materials, products and personnel that allow it. And all that has a price.

Why You Should Have A Professional Check Your Car After A Collision.

Tags : 

We all know it’s frustrating and annoying to see the appearance of your car tarnished. Those who have ever been in this type of situation can all agree. Getting hit in the rear end is the one collision you’d want to avoid. The damage at first may not be immediately noticed but later on, down the line, it doesn’t mean it won’t be there. Three common issues with the rear end collisions include wheel alignment issues, hidden body damage, and trunk issues.

What to check for after your rear-end collision?

After you’re in an accident depending on where your vehicle is hit your vehicle is going to have some sort of issues with it. Many of these issues will include off wheel alignment, cracks, and bends in the frame, and whatever else is possible. In some cases, you have trunk issues and others can just be totaled.

Hidden body damages?

There are a few types of hidden body damages like cracks and bends in the frame, but being hit in the rear can affect the mechanics of the vehicle. There’s always a possibility of transmission damage from a rear-end collision since most cars are rear-wheel drive and it is located toward the back, but how long until that shows up? We advise you always have a professional check your car out after any sort of accident.

Alignment Issues?

After any sort of accident, there is an issue almost anyone will have. You will probably feel your vehicle slightly steering to the side on its own and not steering straight. Or you can even feel the wheels wobbling on your car or vibrations as you drive. This is because when the car was hit the vehicle suspension and steering systems were affected causing your steering column to miss a line with your wheels. When driving with bad alignment you are more prone to tire blowouts, which can always easily become fatal. Your brakes aren’t as effective as they usually are either since the wheels are misaligned they won’t break evenly which just puts everyone including yourself at risk. Another thing that’s something to remember is with bad alignment comes reduced maneuverability. Any sudden movements won’t be made as quickly and effectively when steering the car, another safety risk. You can avoid all of these by bringing the car to your local collision repair specialist.

Why choose us!

Here at Sam’s auto body and paint, we can fix any type of accidents. Anything from a shopping cart scratch to a terrible rear passenger side collision.

Repair Your Auto Body After an Accident

An auto body with imperfections is not the most aesthetic. If the imperfections are only small superficial scratches, a corrective product or a sticker of any design is enough to camouflage them. On the other hand, if after an accident, the body of your car has suffered more than scratches, such as a bump, for example, you must hand in the hands of a specialist in body repair in Rennes to repair it.

Insurance Coverage For Your Car In Case of Collision

Tags : 

Being in a collision could be one of the scariest things that could ever happen to you. On one hand, you may be scared for your life depending on how severe the collision is. On the other hand, you would be scared for your investment: your car.

I, for one, have been in a collision. I was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and it wasn’t pleasant. If you’re fortunate to get out without an injury, your first worry will be the extent if the damage your car has incurred.

These damages could be different kinds depending on the area of impact. But in most cases, a broken and damaged fender, a crumpled body, damage to head or tail lights. Fixing these damages are quite expensive but if your car is covered by collision coverage, you won’t have to spend a lot on repairs.

Collision Coverage – What is it?

Insurance companies offer different types of insurance for vehicles, one of which is the collision coverage. This type covers all damages caused by accidents/collisions with other vehicles. Even collision with objects (trees, fences, light or light poles) as well. Don’t think too far – these type of coverage will not cover medical bills or damage not caused by a collision. It’s as its name implies, collision coverage. But first, you’ll have to pay some deductible.

What’s a Deductible?

This is the amount of money you pay before your insurance policy goes into effect. This amount is decided when creating your insurance policy with your insurer. Take, for instance, if your deductible when creating your insurance policy is $1000, you’ll have to pay this sum for your coverage to kick in after a collision.

What to Consider when Choosing Your Deductible Policy

Risk

If the risks of having a collision are high, your best option for a lower deductible. The risks for you could be high if you take your age, climate/weather, the chances of hitting wildlife, and even the current state of your car.

On the other hand, the risk of you getting involved in a collision is relatively low – because of experience and your driving record – best go for a higher deductible policy.

Premiums

In most cases, the higher your deductible, the lower your premiums. This depends on the insurance company.

Collision Coverage for an Old Car – is it Worth it?

How old is the car you want to get collision coverage for? If the car is well over 10 years old it won’t be a great idea to get collision coverage for it. Why? Most insurance companies will only pay the ‘fair market value’ for the damages to the car. In order to save money on premiums and deductibles, you’ll have to drop the insurance coverage.

In some cases, however, you can’t drop your coverage. Such cases involve the leasing of your car. Try to be economical and find out if your car is worth its collision coverage after 10 years. If it’s not, then there’s no point going on with it.

Getting your car covered for collisions is a good idea. If you’re fortunate you may never have a need for it. But that’s too high a risk because since collisions are accidents, they can happen anytime and to anyone, even the most experienced. It doesn’t necessarily have to be your fault.

If you do find yourself in a collision and are in need of repairs, just pick your phone and dial Sam’s Auto Body and Paint.

How to Keep Auto Body in Perfect Condition | Prevent Corrosion & Damages to Paint

Tags : 

Keeping the auto body in perfect condition is something that any vehicle owner wants for their vehicle very much. First, because the auto body in perfect condition gives a good and complete picture of what our car is; second because a body and its impeccable painting maintain the market value of our vehicle among the highest possible values. However, the inclemency of the weather and external factors that damage the metal, make us run the risk of suffering corrosion, or deterioration of the paint.

We can see the two problems as two versions of one. For example, a “Chinita” fired against our car can make a slight wound to the paint, and from there we can suffer corrosion; or, a corroded part can begin to eat the paint little by little. how we can manage this is to take good care of the body both daily and in longer periods.

Maintenance of Auto Body Paint in Perfect Condition: Washing the Car

Washing the car is a task that raises different passions: there are those who love and dedicate a good part of it on Sunday morning, and there are those who hate it and prefer the rain to wash the car. We are going to focus on those two extreme characters, and in the end, we will realize that it is better to buy a car from the first, than from the second.

Washing a car with a sponge

How do you wash the car to take care of the painting? With care and patience. On the body we can find bird droppings, remains of (thousands of) insects, tree resins, tar spots, industrial dust particles, soot particles, and in general everything we can imagine, and all those remains affect the paint as much as the metal.

  • Washing the car is often a good way to keep the paint in perfect condition and prevent corrosion.
  • It is better to wash the car by hand if we can do it or find where, because we will be less aggressive than what we can get at a car wash.
Carwashed Black Sedan
  • Before starting, soften. As in any case of accumulated or encrusted dirt, it is best to first soften the remains with plenty of hot water.
  • The lower parts of the car, tires, and tires accumulate a lot of dirt and it is convenient to be conscientious in our cleaning. Can you use water under pressure? Yes, although being purists it will always be more aggressive than a soft sponge, but it will be a faster process and, if we want, effective. The reality is that if the dirt is soft enough, we will clean it perfectly with a sponge.
  • We will always clean the body from top to bottom, without exerting much pressure (because we have already softened the remains and stains), constantly rinsing the sponge and using a soap indicated for the paint, with the correct pH.
  • Once clean, we rinse the car thoroughly, thoroughly. Do not skimp water so that we do not have traces of soap.
  • We dry the car with a microfiber cloth.

What not to do

  • Rub the stains and debris dry, because we can scratch the paint.
  • Let the stains and, especially the remains like bird droppings, insects, resins … remain long embedded in the paint.
  • Let the car dry in the sun. This damages the paint a lot and is one of the most frequent causes of wear.

Washing the car by hand is a task that takes time. Maybe the option of the car wash is the most comfortable, but the reality is that finding one of them that is perfectly regulated is complicated, at least in some areas. We can find them with defective brushes, with some deficiency of, for example, soap (which does not have), and a number of possible problems. They really take much less time, but like everything in life, it depends on what we want to achieve. Clean car, caring and always in perfect condition? Only a car without dirt? We choose. We will finish now with some tips to avoid or correct the possible corrosion of the body.

How to avoid corrosion in the body

Classic Brown Vehicle Parked Beside Trees
  • It is convenient to immediately repair any damage that has penetrated the surface sheet, that is, exposing the metal. Once the surface is “perforated”, the metal is perfectly exposed to corrosion. If we have a little touch or detect something in the body, let’s try it as soon as possible.
  • In addition, if the car is repaired for any reason, always check the condition of the anti-corrosion product layers. It is one more measure of caution.
  • If you live in an area of sea, and as an extra ball if you use the car on a dirt road or on a beach (do not do it because it is forbidden!) You should check that there are no remains of sand on the ground or inside the car. In addition, the saltpeter should be cleaned quickly, the same (although it is another case) that the salt that you can accumulate in a road trip if you pass through stretches of road with snow.
  • Washing the car is often a way to keep the body safe from corrosion. For more references, scroll up in this article.

Once you pull over, try to collect your thoughts and remember to keep calm. Taking deep long breaths is a great way to calm yourself.

2. Switch on Your Hazard Lights

Just before you exit your vehicle, turn on the hazard lights. The switch is usually labeled two concentric triangles. After turning on the lights, you and other occupants of the vehicle should get out in a safe and orderly fashion. Make sure not to put yourself in harm’s way when you all get out.

3. Call 911

Once out of harms ways, call 911. Don’t assume the other party has already made the call. Make the call yourself, it won’t hurt if multiple calls were made concerning the accident. When the cops arrive, cooperate with them and respond to their inquiries. They are well trained in handling road accidents.

4. Gather Important Info and Take Pictures

While this may seem unnecessary and work for the cops, you should do it as it can help speed up your insurance claim.

5. Don’t Waste Time Throwing Blames

While it’s important to discuss with the other party, it is also very important not to discuss who’s at fault and all. Be polite with them, remember they just went through the same experience. At this point after a collision accident, discussing who’s to blame can cause tempers to flare and that won’t do for anyone. Leave the conversation for your insurance agent.

6. Call Your Insurance Company

You should do this after calling 911. Your insurance company needs to know about the accident. Submit all the info you’ve been able to gather in their absence to them so that all the paperwork for the repairs of your car is done swiftly.
