Steps to Refinishing a Car
Our professional painters have years of experience restoring and/or repairing the finish of cars. The first step in the refinishing process is chemical cleaning. The surface must be cleaned with a special chemical that removes all wax and dirt. The next step is sanding. This is done by hand or machine depending on the level of damage. Third is the featheredging. This step involves a type of sanding to gradually reduce scratches. After this is completed, the surface is re-cleaned again. Next, a primer surfacer is applied so the paint can better stick. Lastly, the primer sealer is applied to the vehicle – this allows for color holdout. This means the color will not sink into the old surface.
