Automotive Paint: It’s the Icing on the Cake

Have you ever wondered how auto body experts can make a car or truck look brand new after an accident?  Once the damaged parts have been replaced, a proper paint job is what really brings a vehicle back to its true form.  It’s basically the icing on a cake.  Even if you don’t like frosting, let’s be honest, a cake without icing looks unfinished and a bit odd.  The same can be said about a car without a proper paint job.  This is why Peninsula Auto Body has chosen to use only the best automotive paint available.

After receiving a fresh coat of paint it’s important to make keep a few things in mind to ensure the longevity of the paint.  For the next sixty days, it’s preferred that you hand wash the vehicle with automotive soap.  Avoid using a car wash a high-pressure washer and do not use car wax or any type of wax products.  Make sure to wash your vehicle in the shade and avoid parking near sprinklers, which can leave water spots on the painted finish.

    It is incredible how well body shops make a car look like the damage never happened even on cars that I would think would be totaled!
