Step 4: Structural & Body Repairs
In the structural/body repair area, all structural damages will be completed using a dedicated fixture and/or a computerized measuring system depending on the structural composition of your vehicle be it aluminum, steel or both.
All metal finishing and straightening repair work is completed at this time along with gauging all openings and seams.
Step 5: Paint Prep & Refinishing
Paint preparation is a critical step in the refinishing process of every vehicle. Along with duplicating factory caulking and undercoats, all panels are carefully prepped, primed and sealed to ensure proper adhesion when the final top color and clear coat is applied.
Step 6: Reassembly
Vehicle is meticulously put back together and all systems are checked and calibrated to factory settings. All moldings & trim are installed and checked for proper fit & alignment.
Step 7: Final Cleaning for Delivery
A thorough cleaning of your vehicle takes place at this point and a pre-delivery inspection is performed. A checklist is turned in and a final invoice is prepared.
