Refinishing requires a fine eye for detail, color, and paint application. It’s an excellent move for striking looks, and also a great rust preventative.
Important to note here is that there is no such thing as paint made by Honda, Ford, Toyota, or any other manufacturer, then sold outside the plant. Actually, suppliers such as Sherwin Williams, Martin Senour, and PPG supply repair facilities and dealerships. They supply us with products and tints used in the refinishing process.
A mixing booth (a room, basically), along with a pretty fancy computer program that has a sensitive scale is then used to mix the paint for each vehicle, based on the unique VIN of the vehicle.
Why are we telling you this? Because this means that any repair facility with the correct equipment can mix the precise color for your vehicle.
We don’t want to bore you with all the details (although personally, we like to geek out on them). Suffice it to say, there are other factors that affect the price --
- Whether your vehicle has a 2- or 3-stage process (3-stage takes more time and knowledge, and is more pricey)
- Whether the vehicle is masked off (moldings, lamps, weather strips, etc.)
- Whether necessary items are removed
- Whether final-stage items are being performed (removing unwanted particles, buffing)
If you see a big price differential between repair shops, these are some of the items that can make up the difference between price points, and also between being super unhappy or super satisfied with the outcome. Nobody wants debris in their brand-new paint job.
If you’re looking to repaint your vehicle or for seamless scratch removal, you’ve found your shop. We can also provide paintless dent removal (PDR) service at our shop through a subcontractor.
