Body Work & Paint
Body Work: The most critical stage for a custom paint job application is the preparation of the vehicle’s body. This phase must be planned and finished properly in order to achieve excellence. It makes all the difference in our ability to provide the best restoration available in the industry today.
Paint: The paint on your classic car or truck is the first thing that people see. With this in mind, it is important to ensure that you have a professional who knows that preparation is everything. All bare metal is coated in an epoxy primer, then prepared for painting with only the highest quality paint to ensure a lasting finish that will leave you with a top-of-the-line classic beauty for years to come.
Our detailed process involves:
- The vehicle is disassembled, and the parts are inspected and stored.
- The vehicle frame is inspected to determine the extent of repair required for proper body panel fit.
- We carefully remove the vehicle’s paint and old body work manually
- The vehicle is etch primed to protect the bare steel.
- Rust is repaired and dents are removed from the body.
- Floors are repaired or replaced as needed.
- The vehicle is primed and then finished.
- All panels are test fitted and adjusted.
- The vehicle is inspected and sent to our paint department.
