Paintless Dent Repair: An Affordable Alternative

As the owner of a vehicle, whether it is a brand new model or an older classic car, many times dings and dents can occur that detract from the overall appeal and looks of the vehicle. Although you want these dents repaired, you do not want to spend tons of money paying a body shop to have them pulled out, repaired, then repainted. Often, however, these dents can be repaired using paintless dent repair.

Paintless Dent Repair: An Affordable Alternative

If these dents are shallow and the collision was soft enough that the paint remained intact, then they are ideal candidates for this repair procedure. These types of dents often affect the outer clear coat layer only and their damage is mostly aesthetic in nature.

Paintless dent removal approaches the dent from the inside, although this may seem a bit complicated with the limited space available, it can be quite simple for a professional. A pro can evaluate the vehicle and come up with the best solution to get it back to where it should be or even better. They have the specialized tools required to do this job professionally and know how to access the damaged area quickly without unnecessarily breaking trim or interior paneling.

The repair technician uses these specialized tools from the inside by applying the proper amount and shape of pressure to the damaged area. Often, the technician will simultaneously hold other tools against the outside surface to prevent the dent from being pushed out too far. After the dent is returned to its original location and is properly aligned, they will buff it and the surrounding area to blend these areas together again.

Although this type of dent repair is not applicable for every scenario in body work, especially after the damage has occurred from a major accident, this is a quick and affordable alternative to the small, soft dents that often occur from everyday use of an automobile. If your car is potentially in need of these paintless repair services, please feel free to contact us for more information.

3 Aspects of Outstanding Auto Painting

Clean lines, piercing shine, and smooth, silky coats are what make for a beautiful paint job. How does it happen? There are a few aspects involved in auto painting that make it outstanding. Read on to find out more.

3 Aspects of Outstanding Auto Painting

Preparation

Before a lick of paint hits the car, perfect preparation is absolutely necessary. This involves recognizing dents and scratches, filling low spots, and sanding correctly. This ensures an even and smooth surface upon which we apply the paint. Add to that cleaning for best adhesion, masking to prevent overspray, and priming. Knowing the right tools for each job and using them correctly is imperative. There is a lot that goes on during preparation that ensures the paint job comes out looking its best.

Materials

The right materials can make all the difference. Auto painting involves using various materials. Each one, from the sandpaper and plastic to the primer and paint must be of the best quality and be suitable for the task(s) at hand.

Experience and Passion

Probably the most important aspect of great auto painting is the experience and passion brought to the job by the painter. Experienced painters who bring integrity to their work know how best to prepare, what tools to use, and how to apply the best materials. They treat each project with the same care and attention as the one before it. Proper training, application of trade skills, and a passion for a beautiful outcome are the markings of a great painter.

Many intricacies take an okay auto painting job and elevate it into an exemplary one. Quality materials, perfect preparation, and experience and passion all have their parts to play.
