Operating as usual


Paint and body shop technicians are similar in many ways to artisans. If it's important to return your vehicle to like-new condition, it's best to let a professional handle the job.


After a serious wreck, the decision whether to declare your vehicle totaled can vary significantly depending on the insurer. Many insurers say a car is totaled when the cost of repairs equals or exceeds the actual cash value of the vehicle.


To help protect a car's finish, use a pressure washer to clean under the bumper and around the tires every couple of months. Removing accumulated mud, gravel and road debris will prevent the debris from coming off and chipping the paint while you are driving.


E.I. Dupont De Nemours invented a nitrocellulose lacquer system in 1923 that made it possible to paint cars in different colors. However, the paint couldn't stand up to gasoline. That explains why many manufacturers moved the gas tank opening under the license plate in the 1960s.


Although acrylic lacquer automotive paint was already a popular option in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, during the 1950s an improved version came out and this became the primary paint used for such brands as Rolls Royce.


Did you know that insecticides can affect the paint on your vehicle? If your garage is being sprayed for bugs, or areas around your driveway are being treated with insecticides, remove your vehicle from the area until the spraying is finished.


Did you know that bird droppings can increase deterioration of vehicle paint - especially if the droppings land on areas of the paint that are already thin or chipped? To protect your paint, try to remove bird droppings as soon as possible.


To help preserve a new coat of paint, wash your vehicle in the shade. Washing a vehicle while it is hot, or in the sun, can increase the paint's vulnerability to scratches and nicks which can occur when the vehicle is washed.


We can repair even heavily damaged cars. Collision technicians will measure the car frame to determine the extent of structural damage. They will then attach and/or clamp frames and subsections to hydraulic pressure structural machines to realign the damaged components.


In his autobiography, Henry Ford made light of the number of black Model T's between 1914 and 1926, writing that Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.


While lacquer-based paints are easy to apply and enamel paints are much stronger, urethane paint combines the strength of both, although the paint preparation process is relatively complicated.


Why is it so important to promptly repair car dents, scratches, chips, and other body damage to a vehicle? These areas are prone to rust, which can quickly spread to surrounding areas and weaken the infrastructure of your vehicle.


While your insurer may have a preference for a particular auto body shop company, it's important to know that you can choose your own collision repair facility.


Experienced body repairers commonly have the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. Repairers can take up to four ASE Master Collision Repair and Refinish Exams. Those who pass all four exams are certified as ASE Master Technicians.


Newer vehicles are built of materials like plastic, aluminum, and steel alloys, which makes them susceptible to greater damage and harder to repair. But we are able to mend these vehicles with our body repairers who have the necessary knowledge and tools.


There were more than 166,000 automotive body and relative repair workers in the United States in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


We are equipped to repair vehicles with metal frames and parts. We can also repair or replace plastic or fiberglass body parts that are increasingly used on newer vehicles.


Painting an entire vehicle, or matching the color of an area that has been damaged, is something that takes quite a bit of experience to handle routinely. That's why it makes sense to hire a paint shop.


Waxing your car on a regular basis will only protect the car's paint finish if you are using the right type of wax. Be sure you are using a quality wax that is suitable for the type of finish you have, and wax about every 3 to 4 months.


We employ collision repair technicians who are trained in the field of auto body repair. This enables us to perform the necessary repairs and custom refinishing of damaged vehicles according to the manufacturer's specifications.


While it may be tempting to apply a fresh coat of wax to a new paint job, wait at least 90 days before you do so. Waxing a car too early after a new application of paint can mar the finish and prevent the paint from completely hardening.


If you are parking a car that has a fresh paint job, avoid the trees. Parking under trees can expose a new paint job to highly acidic bird droppings and hard to remove tree sap. Instead, try to park in an open area shaded by a building.


When washing your vehicle, use soft clean cloths. Avoid using cloths which have not been cleaned since the last wash as the cloths often contain small pieces of dirt and debris which can scratch the finish on the car's paint.


If you need to clean your car in the first 30 days following a new paint finish, just wash the car off in water. Avoid wiping the car with a cloth as the cloth can pick up miniscule pieces of sand and debris that can scratch the finish.


When it comes to automotive paint, the preparation process is critical in ensuring that a seamless look is achieved. Each panel needs to be primed and sealed to make sure that the adhesion will be optimal and long-lasting.


Once the frame of your damaged car has been properly aligned, your repair technicians will begin to repair or replace damaged body parts. Less serious dents can be pulled out or knocked out using a variety of special tools.


The job prospects for automotive body technicians in the 10-year period ending in 2018 are not great. While the average industry is expected to grow by 8 percent in that period, the number of auto body workers is expected to remain steady.


If you are considered buying a used vehicle that was totaled, it's important to understand what happens after a car is totaled. Insurers sell the vehicles at salvage auctions where they may be used for parts or put back on the road by rebuilders.


We employ skilled collision repair technicians who can straighten bent car frames, smoothen dents, and replace collapsed parts that cannot be mended.


Increasingly, there are more and more plastic body parts used on modern vehicles. Your bodywork repair technician will either used a hot-air welding gun and reshape the part by hand, or if it's more cost effective, simply replace it with a new part.


Look carefully at the title of a vehicle to determine if it has previously been totaled by an insurance company. The title may say parts only, scrap or salvage title.


A car's body is made up of a series of panels which are pieced together and attached to the frame. So-called unibody designs combine the internal frame and exterior body in a single piece, using the frame itself to provide structural rigidity to the body.


Even if your car has been in a serious accident, with the right bodywork job, it can be refinished to look like new. Repair technicians can straighten bent bodies, remove dents, and replace parts that can't be fixed.


When it comes to automotive topcoats, you want the finish to be durable while requiring minimal maintenance. Ideally, a good topcoat should provide a hard, glossy layer that's resistant to scratching and easy to polish.


While car owners can decide whether to live with a faded paint job or a ding or dent, that choice isn't available to owners of leased vehicles. Virtually all car lease agreements stipulate that the vehicle must be returned at the end of the lease term in the same condition.
