Whatever you are looking to do with the vehicle you are building. We can help you in getting you to your goal we just need a good idea of where you want us to take you. At the end of your build your vehicle will be completely unique and tailored to you.

Complete restoration: A complete restoration paint job can go as indepth as you can imagine. Cars are entirely disassembled and each part is assesed to make sure it is in good working order. If not the parts is either rebuilt or replaced. 

Custom: Custom paint jobs include all that would go into a restoration and then some. There is no limit as to how far you can go with the imagination of the painter. These paint jobs are recommended for those looking to build trailer queens for the sole purpose of winning car shows. for traif the

Stripping

Sandblasting: Sandblasting is the best course of action to take when looking to remove all the material off of a vehicle. The vehicle must be disassembled completely before blast and wait times can be delayed because this work is subletted out and out of our control

Hand-Stripping: This is preferable to keep heat out of the panel to prevent distortion. A technician will go over the car with a sander very meticulously go over every area slowing down where necessary   

Chemically stripping: An acid is used to raise the old material off the panel and can then be scraped off. In some instances the acid will not lift the paint leaving no choice but to hand strip or sandblast.

The secret to a good paintjob is using the right materials and applying them correctly. Modern day materials will last for decades when the right hands are applying them.

Epoxy: Epoxy is special because of its chemical properties that allow it to bind to metal. This is the best protection for your vehicle's body and it gives the following layers, which have no metal adhesion properties, something to grab and bond to.

Filler: The modern technology in fillers have made them far more reliable than the dreaded "Bondo". Bondo was very problematic because it was very porous and knowledge about epoxy was not very common. Body shop technicians would apply Bondo straight to bare metal, over time moisture would wick into the pores of the fillers and cause it to fail and "crack out". In comparison, the fillers of today have a very high resin content which makes them less porous and very strong. Used in combination with epoxy a repair can be expected to last for decades the

Primer: For paint jobs that require a laser straight finish a major piece of getting the car straight is using a high build primer to help remove imperfections in the body.

Basecoat: base is the actual color of the car.

Clearcoat: Clear is the final and most important layer of a paint job. This layer is responsible for protecting all layers underneath from the outside elements, most notably moisture and UV rays.   material that will be a
