When’s the last time you gave your car a second look? Or ran your fingers along the hood? It’s time you fell back in love with your car again. Let us transform your weathered wagon with a new coat of paint, and soon you’ll be driving the car you always wanted, again.
We’ve mastered the steps to a perfect makeover
Step 1 -Body repair
Worried about those small dents and unsightly scratches ruining your paint job? No need to worry, as part of your vehicle’s Painting Service, our body repair technicians have mastered the method of eliminating those blemishes down to a five-step process to ensure that your finish is free from those small dents and unsightly scratches.
Step 2 – Surface Preparation
What’s the importance of surface repair? You know those chips, scratches, cracks and excessive peeling on your vehicle? If left untreated and exposed to the elements over time, these conditions could ultimately ruin your paint job. Repairing such issues will help your vehicle receive the smoothest finish and highest possible gloss. At S&F Auto Body, our estimators examine your vehicle and suggest condition repairs. We offer affordable surface prep options that ensure your Painting Service looks great. A little surface repair before the paint goes on can ensure it holds that gloss and shine for years to come.
Step 3 – Proper car care
Proper car care can have a major impact on the durability and appearance of your new paint. The right maintenance can help your car hold its color and shine, as well as provide protection from the elements.
When possible, try to:
- Park in the shade, but avoid trees
- Avoid driving on sand, salt or loose gravel
- Wash your car regularly
Washing your car is a great way to remove unwanted contaminants that may be damaging your finish such as tree sap, bird droppings or bugs. It’s recommended that you hand wash your car twice a month with mild automotive detergent. Use a soft cloth or sponge to avoid scratching the surface of the paint.
Be sure to use this as an opportunity to rinse the undercarriage of your car to remove dirt, salt or other chemicals that promote rust.
Four to six weeks following your paint job, we recommend that you wax your car every 90 days to protect your new finish. Make sure to use an automotive wax, like Mothers’, that does not contain abrasive cleaning agents, such as silicone.
Apply a thin coat of wax using the provided applicator and with short, circular motions apply it to the entire car. Allow the wax to dry completely before removing it. Using a terry cloth towel, apply firm pressure to wipe the wax off using the same short, circular motion.
