Achieving a Flawless Paint Refinish, Every Time
From equipment technology to technician training, results are in the process details.
Common Reasons Vehicles Need Paint Refinishing
When a vehicle comes in for paint refinishing, the reasons can vary but most commonly it’s needed due to a collision repair. However, there are other popular reasons cars roll into to have their paint job renewed, the top three include:
Normal Wear and Tear
As vehicles age, so do their paint jobs which often begin to fade as a result of exposure to light and heat. In New England, exposure to salt during the winter months also poses significant risks to a vehicles paint job, including rust. The paint surface starts to lose its shine and luster, and have a chalky appearance - this is when many vehicle owners begin to think about refinishing their vehicles paint.
The majority of refinishing jobs are needed because a vehicle was involved in an accident and required collision repairs. Refinishing surfaces due to collision repairs typically only require portions of the vehicle repainted versus the entire surface.
Classic Car Restoration
Restoring a classic car takes patience and passion. Many classic car enthusiasts who start a restoration project need to have the vehicles paint refinished among the many other items on their project to-do list. Often the paint jobs are refinished to match the vehicles original color from the manufacturer, despite some vehicles dating back to the 1950s or earlier.
Although process and application are the true marks of a quality auto refinishing job, color matching is equally important. Vehicle manufacturers do not typically have their paint colors available for resale beyond touch-up pens for minor scratches. Color matching is the job of auto body shops, which is a fairly complicated task. A&M Auto Body Inc. uses industry leading digital technology to mix paints and achieve exact color matches, guaranteed.
