Auto Body Work

We expertly handle all your collision repair needs. While some dealerships might have an auto body repair facility, dealerships mainly specialize in car sales. We, on the other hand, specialize in fixing your car with auto body and collision work. We constantly keep our technicians trained on every aspect of body work so you can be certain your vehicle is in the hands of professionals.

Correctly done collision repair brings the car back to the same visual and safety specifications it had when it was built.

An accident will distort the shape of the car, so we start by taking the vehicle apart and getting its chassis back to original specifications.

We then replace or repair any part that is damaged. Since our foremost concern is your safety, we don't use low quality, after-market parts-we only use parts that pass all factory standards. Any rusted parts are also replaced.

Preparation and Painting

Your vehicle's paint is what prevents your vehicle from deteriorating and rusting. There are many types of paint and many ways to apply them.

Some people think that once you purchase a new panel for a vehicle it is ready to be painted. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case. Many new panels need to be straightened and their gaps filled, which can be a time-consuming process, but very necessary to achieving a beautiful vehicle.

Existing paint has to be removed with sanding and any filling also needs to be sanded until the body of the car is totally smooth.

The paint process itself is a multi-step procedure. Multiple layers are applied to the vehicle so the paint looks like new and lasts a long time.

The following are some of the layers applied to all vehicles we restore:

The primer is the coating layer that protects the vehicle from corrosion, sunlight, rust, etc. It also smoothes out irregularities on the surface of the car or truck.
The base coat establishes the aesthetics of the car by giving the vehicle a layer of color. Our base coats won't fade for many, many years, so the color of your vehicle will stay vibrant.
The clear coat is the top coating layer that protects all other layers from the elements. Day after day it withstands acids, sunlight, rain, and beatings from normal wear and tear. The clear coat also endows your car or truck with the shine of a new vehicle.

Customer Review

"I had my 1991 Ford Mustang restored here. I couldn't believe what I saw when I picked it up it looked exactly the way it looked when I bought it in 1990. If your looking for quality professional work done at a great price this is the place to go to. This is my first time ever posting in a review its just that I'm so happy with the work they have done I had to"
