It’s the most important step in the entire process. If you aren’t starting with a clean surface, you’re asking for trouble. Imperfections in paint must be removed without causing additional harm or burning through the paint. We want to avoid any emergency calls to the local bodyshops for new paint quotes.
Brand new vehicles can have paint issues as well. Even if you can’t see them, a trained eye can. They can consist of: Paint run, orange peel, dirt in the paint, sap, acid rain, bird dropping acids, and environmental fallout. After vehicles are release from the assembly plant, they sit in a compound waiting to be shipped to the dealer. Whether they are sitting there or on dealers lots, they have exposure to some harsh elements.Prep time for new vehicles is far less compared to pre-owned vehicles, because they haven’t been exposed to actual day to day abuse. Issues mentioned above generally come down to smaller areas rather the entire vehicle. These areas can be carefully wet sanded and polished back to the paints original state. Important: Don’t allow your new vehicle to turn old so quickly. To keep your costs down, have it coated by a professional right away, prior to driving it in our harsh environments and dirty roads.
Pre-owned vehicles on the other hand, have already been exposed to scratching, UV Rays, hazing, oxidation, swirling, dirt, harsh chemicals, tar, sap, acid rain, brushes, wash mitts etc. that oxidize, scratch and contaminate your entire paint surface. This is where costs start to creep up due to the time required to “correct” the problem of restoring the paint back to its original glossy state. In most cases, achieving 80-90% is considered a great accomplishment.
