Avoid the following possible mistakes when you take your vehicle for Auto-body Repairs
Colours Not Matching
If the repair shop doesn’t use a proven system to get a perfect match, you may end up with the door slightly darker or lighter than the surrounding panels. This is a common mistake, made by inexperienced artisans working without scientific equipment. Most often the colours will look like they match in the repair shop light, but only once you take the vehicle outside will the natural light reveal the difference in colour. Fluorescent lights can also be used to see whether there’s a colour difference.
At Carty Carvenience in Pretoria, we make use of the Glasurit colour match system and qualified spray painters for perfect matching. Indeed, we guarantee a perfect colour match ensuring that you can expect the best quality work throughout.
Messy Paint Application
Before a panel can be sprayed the artisan must mask surrounding areas unless he removes the panel before spraying. If any adjacent section is not masked, you’ll find traces of spray on it. You can spot the mistake by inspecting the areas immediately adjacent to the panel or area painted. Look at the trims and see if you note any fogginess.
When you bring a vehicle to Carty Carvenience, we take the time to prepare the area surrounding the panel or area to be sprayed and or remove the panel where relevant. As such, you won’t find sloppy spray work and traces of over spraying on an adjacent area.
