                            What You Should Know When Getting Your Vehicle Painted
                                                       By Samantha McCartney



   Sometimes there comes a time in a vehicle’s “life” that it needs a little work. Usually this happens
because the owner gets busy and puts off taking the proper car of a vehicle. Then most times they end
up not realizing it until after the damage is done and some form of repair needs to be completed. Many
times that repair that needs to be done is getting your vehicles painted either all over or in one or a few
spots. Either way this can be a big task and you need to know what to consider when getting any kind
of paint work done to your vehicle.

 First of all, the first to consider is where you will get the work done. You absolutely need to find a shop
that produces top quality work on their paint jobs. Getting your car painted or especially just an area
painted is nothing to let an amateur do for you. A paint job can easily look bad if it is not done by a
professional with experience. Leave this job to the pros!

 Next you want to ensure that the auto body shop you choose uses the latest technology for matching
your paint. This is why you don’t just paint your car yourself. A good auto body shop should have the
latest technology that matches the paint on your vehicle so that in the end no one will even be able to
tell that you had any work done. This is the result you should be looking for.

 You also want to make sure that the auto body shop is using high quality paints. Sure, if they use a
cheaper paint it will cost less, however it will also not look as good. Even if it looks good at first you
face the fact that it will most likely wear down easy and start to look bad sooner than later. So, spend a
little extra and make sure that your vehicle is getting a high quality paint put on it. Otherwise you may
end up spending more down the road when it needs to be fixed.

 Paint is not only important for your vehicles appearance but also to protect the body of your car. The
paint actually acts as a sealant for the steel or metal body that your car is comprised of. So, if that
sealant is broken or nonexistent it will not be able to protect your car. Eventually that will lead to your
car rusting and corroding. Which is not good for the body since its job is to protect you and your
passengers. It will cause the body of your vehicle to be weakened. Also it will not look very good either.
A little paint missing is one thing, but rust is quite another. If you want to keep your vehicles resale
value and keep it safe for you and your passengers it is important that you get a quality paint job done
from a professional! Get your vehicle looking great and riding safe today.

                                    How to Fix a Scratch on Your Vehicle’s Paint Job
                                                           By Brenda Williams



There has more than likely been one time or another when you have experienced a scratch on the
paint job of your vehicle. Did you know that there are ways that this can be repaired without the costly
trip to the dealership or auto body shop? The truth is, sooner or later – every car is going to get a
scratch, so – use these tips to get rid of the unsightly marks.

 If the car has been painted with enamel paint, than the vehicle repair may need professional attention,
if not – than you can go ahead with these simple tips to repair a scratch on the surface of the vehicle.

 When repairing a scratch, it is important to lightly wash the surface of any material that would affect
the bonding of the paint that is going to be applied to fix the scratch. Sometimes, when vehicles have
been waxed, it decreases the ability for the paint to create a bond with the metal, creating an obvious
paint line. A mild dish detergent or even a mild laundry detergent can be used to take off any wax,
protecting or seal that is on the vehicle and could interrupt the scratch repair process.

 Next, you will need to lightly sand the area where the vehicle is scratched with fine grained sand
paper. When completing this step, it is most effective to do this by hand. This will ensure that the
vehicle will not be over-sanded and damage the body of the vehicle, or even further damage the paint
job of the vehicle. Never use an electric sander to repair a small scratch on the body or door of the
vehicle; this will lead to unsightly marks being left after the scratch has been repaired. When sanding,
go with the direction on the scratch, as this will not make it worse.

 If there is rust near the scratch, than it can be easily removed with rust-cleaner and sandpaper
treatment. When sanding, only be sure to grind down the area that is closest to the scratch.

 Before painting, tape-off the area of the scratch using newspaper, allowing a small cutout for the
scratch. This will ensure that only the area required is painted. After all, the paint is more than likely not
going to be the exact same tone, unless the vehicle is new and the exact paint is chosen.

 How do you choose paint for your vehicle that is being repaired? Often, there is color swatches
available from the dealership that the vehicle was purchased from, if not, than at the local auto body
supply store there should be a sufficient color. Remember, these colors may not go on completely flush
with the current color. The more a vehicle has been exposed to the elements, the more the color fades
– making it hard to determine the replacement color.

 Next, the area should be sprayed with touch up paint, avoid brushing as it could cause unsightly
marks to occur within the paint. Next, remove the paper and let the vehicle dry overnight to ensure it is
not going to be effected by the elements.
