What To Consider When Getting Your Car Painted

Are you thinking about getting your vehicle repainted? A fresh coat of paint on your car can bring so much satisfaction, but what all goes into getting your vehicle painted?

Here are some things to consider.

Paint Can’t Fix Everything

Do you have damaged areas on your vehicle, and hope to apply a fresh coat of paint to hide the imperfections? Depending on the severity of the damage, paint can’t always eliminate the appearance of deep scratches, dents, rust spots, holes, and/or gouges.

Your local auto body shop will recommend that they first remove the old paint on your vehicle and remove any damage before applying a fresh coat of paint.

Painting Can Add Value

Repainting a car can increase its resale or trade-in value, depending on the age of your car.

Expect Repainting To Take Some Time

Prepare for your car to be in the shop for at least a week. Your auto body shop will need to remove any old, faded, and oxidized layers of paint so that they can have a smooth foundation to apply new paint. In addition to this preparation process, your auto body shop may have to remove certain components from your car’s interior before the painting process.

This can include the console, dash, and even the seats to prevent any of these items from becoming damaged during the repainting.
