After The Repair Process At Our Facility
Step 1: Priming and Paint Preparation — Once the vehicle is repaired, it is cleaned thoroughly and a coat of primer is applied to all bare metal. Primer not only provides protection from corrosion, but it also ensures proper application of the paint. The primed vehicle is sanded and prepared for the color and clear coats of paint.
Step 2: Refinishing — This is where our computerized color matching system gets to work, performing a color analysis in order to find an exact match for the color of your vehicle. The paint is mixed (by computer for maximum accuracy), and multiple coats are applied. the paint is blended with the nearby panels, if applicable, and several coats of clear, protective paint are applied on any panels that have been repaired, repainted, and replaced.
Step 3: Reassembly — Now it’s time to put the vehicle back together! For the painting and repair process, the interior trim, exterior trim, glass panels, body panels, and bumpers may be removed. Now they are installed and/or replaced as needed. The electronic systems of the vehicle are checked, and any needed resets are performed.
Step 4: Cleaning — The vehicle goes through a thorough cleaning process, where all of the repaired panels are inspected and any imperfections in the finish are removed. The panels are polished for a uniform appearance, and the vehicle is cleaned thoroughly–both inside and out. At the end of this step, the vehicle looks as good as new.
Step 5: Road Testing — To ensure that the vehicle’s structure has been thoroughly repaired and all electronic systems are functioning properly, the vehicle is road tested. A final quality inspection is performed after road testing, and the vehicle is ready for delivery to you–our soon-to-be happy customer.

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer parts. These parts are made by the manufacturer of your vehicle. Aftermarket Parts (also known as non-OEM or Quality Replacement Parts) are new parts manufactured by companies other than the vehicle manufacturer.
We recommend the use of OEM parts, as they are designed to fit properly and are crash-tested to ensure accurate deployment of the vehicle’s Supplemental Restraint System—the safety features.
