Cosmetic BoostThe first, and most obvious, advantage to body repairs is the cosmetic boost they offer. Plain and simple, cars that undergo body work and restoration look better after the fact. For many classic car enthusiasts, this is huge. Classic cars are cool in large part because of their appearance. What’s more, how a car looks can affect its price. So if you’re thinking of selling a classic vehicle, it’s a wise idea to bring it in for some professional body work before you test the market.
Repairs After AccidentsEven a small accident can cause significant body damage. Indeed, there’s really no such thing as an “isolated car accident.” That’s because when something strikes a car’s body hard enough to cause a dent, the impact ripples all over the car. As such, small accidents can still cause a car’s panels to kink, twist, or become misaligned. Only professional repairs can ensure that a car’s body is completely restored after an accident.
Preparation for Paint JobsPainting a classic car is a long and complicated process. Don’t ever try and give a classic vehicle a custom paint job without first speaking to a qualified professional. In order to ensure that a classic car paint job comes off perfectly, you have to start by preparing the body. Our process looks something like this:
- First, we disassemble the vehicle and inspect all of the parts.
- Next, we carefully remove the vehicle’s old paint and old body work with our in-house media blaster. This prevents any additional damage.
- Lastly, we etch prime the car to protect bare steel before priming and finishing the body work.
