Based on the individual needs of your vehicle, we also machine sand problem areas according to the package purchased.
Base coat clear coat finishes are what car manufacturers’ use when building new vehicles since 1985. Base coat - clear coat is also known as a two-stage finish. The first stage of the finish is the color you choose. Once that has dried, clear coat is applied over the base coat. The clear coat is what provides the gloss and protective layer that contribute to the longevity of the paint job. Base coat - clear coat finishes are the most durable and maintenance free of all finishes and the best option for color match. They are also the most expensive. Single stage finishes uses a technology that allows the color and protective resin to be applied in one single step and because of this can be more difficult to color match.

All of our paint jobs are guaranteed for varying lengths of time. However, you can significantly increase the life of your paint job by keeping it washed and waxed.
