For the next 4 weeks we are going to be talking about how you can get the best results for a long lasting repair from an auto body shop. Many of these steps we will discuss are overlooked by other paint and body shops for two reasons; they lack the knowledge of what should be done or they don’t care about the customer, only the payment. Either of these reasons can leave you with a bad paint job or a shoddy repair that can backfire in a matter of months or years. Full restorations and complete repaints require detailed steps and we make sure every car rolls out with confidence that the work that was done was completed by skilled professionals who care about what they are doing, and it doesn’t hurt that they also leave with a lifetime warranty on the work! If you’re shopping around for some body work, ask around for a Lifetime Warranty and ask about the small print or exceptions. Not many shops offer this, so ask questions to ensure they truly do offer the warranty you’re looking for. Shops that offer these warranties stand by their work and chances are, you will not have to act upon that warranty.
Throughout this blog and future entries you will see images of a truck going through the repainting and upgrade process. For the next few posts we will talk about what that process entails for this 15 year old truck. By the end of the process, the truck will look brand new and the Lifetime Warranty covers any and all paint defects as long as the current owner possesses the truck.
The images you are seeing in this entry is how the truck arrived to our shop—it is before any body work had been done by us. It had been the victim of some bad body work which we were here to save. This type of work is commonly referred to as a restoration, which is often done on older cars; however, we are not doing a full restoration because the age of the truck doesn’t require it. We are not fully removing everything down to the motor, which is often done to treat, fix, or repair rust or other frame and body problems the car might have with age.
Every project we take on is done carefully and with skill so you get the best work available in a timely manner. We will never cut corners to save money on our end. Our jobs include the paint and all other equipment of the highest quality. We ensure the job is done right every time and have been doing this for over 35 years and will continue doing it to continue to provide this service for our community.
The photos throughout this post shows the truck at the start of our project, so we start by finding and treating dings and dents. If this is not done correctly it can cause problems later on. You can’t have a brand new looking truck when there’s flaws, dings, dents, or waves in the body.
