When Should You Consider Auto Painting?

Has a new paint job for your car or truck been on your mind? Are you wondering if it’s worth the investment? If any of the following applies to you, you’re likely to end up glad you had your vehicle painted. Not everyone should consider auto painting their vehicle but if you are stuck as to whether or not you should, we’ve listed our top considerations on the subject.

When Should You Consider Auto Painting?You’ve Had An Accident

If you’ve been in an accident, you’ll need auto painting as well as collision repair to restore the vehicle to its previous state. Even if the accident was minor, a small area of chipped paint can get worse over time.

Your Vehicle Has Scratches

If your vehicle has scratches that expose the metal under the paint, you’ll need auto painting. This is because the metal part rusts when exposed, which can result in holes over time.

You Want to Increase Your Vehicle’s Value

If you’re going to sell, a nice coat of new paint adds value to a vehicle, and you can raise the sale price. It’s reasonable to raise the price over the cost of the painting job, which results in you profiting.

You Just Don’t Like The Vehicle’s Color

When you like the color of your vehicle, you can drive more confidently and be happier with your investment. If you want to buy a certain car but can’t find it in a nice color, auto painting is an easy solution.

Your Vehicle’s Paint is Dull or Faded

If you’ve owned your vehicle for a while and the paint faded, you should consider auto painting. A paint job will make the vehicle appear new again.

Why Auto Painting is Best Left to The Pros

If you’ve been thinking about doing your own auto painting, you probably should think again. Auto painting is more difficult than painting a house, and if you’re inexperienced, you’re likely to experience hassle as you learn how to go about the task. Here are a few reasons why auto painting is really a professional job.

Why Auto Painting is Best Left to The Pros

Auto Painting Requires Multiple Coats

You have to apply the primer, at least one coat of paint color, and a clear coat on top to protect against chips. This is time-consuming and laborious, but you need all three coats to protect against exposed metal from chips. Exposed metal leads to rust spots, which can develop into holes.

Auto Painting Requires Complete Rust Removal

Before applying the primer, you’ll have to remove every speck of rust. Even very small amounts of trapped rust underneath paint can cause problems over time. It’s a more difficult task than just grinding off most of the rust.

The Vehicle Comes Apart For Painting

If you imagine yourself spray painting an intact car, you’ve got the wrong idea. You’ll have to remove every piece that is removable and spray paint each piece. If you don’t use this approach, you’ll get paint color on parts that aren’t supposed to have it.

Auto Paint Takes Forever to Dry

Auto paint takes not hours, not days, but weeks to dry fully. With at least three coats needed, the whole painting process is a long-term project. Auto Painting Professionals use special paint booths to dry paint much faster.

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. At Best In Show, we know what it takes to produce the best. For more information on what makes our auto painting outstanding, or to make an appointment, please contact us.
