You cherish your new luxury vehicle and show your devotion in many ways. As a result, when it’s time for a new paint job, you don’t want to take it to just any auto paint shop – you want it to be serviced by the best. What does the best entail, exactly? Paint quality is clearly a must, but there are other important considerations to make, which we will outline in this article.
If you are searching for reliable, high-quality car painting services in Pompano Beach, choose 1st Class European Authorized Coachworks. Paint is the first thing that people notice on a vehicle, but unfortunately, paint mismatching is an all-too-common occurrence. Therefore, we ensure a perfect match with our multi-step system for your luxury vehicle.
Find out About Their Prep Work
To guarantee paint quality, prep work is important. Even the smallest flaw, like rock chips, can be seen even after every layer of paint is sprayed on your vehicle. Oddly, flaws often look worse after a fresh coat of paint. As a result, make sure you know the shop’s prepping process and that you approve. Some shops rush this step to cut corners, so whenever possible, ask around and find out what others say.
Learn About the Painting Process
No two shops will have the exact same painting process. Some will be more thorough in their approach for an excellent finish. Make sure the shop you take your vehicle to does not attempt to cut corners during their paint process.
Know Their Materials and Equipment
As you know, every shop has a different painting process, but they also use different materials. The best, however, will only use high-performance material, which is especially important with luxury vehicles. At 1st Class, we use the latest waterborne technology from Spies Hecker, a premium refinishing system from Europe.
If you own a luxury vehicle, it is recommended that you take it to a repair shop that specializes in other luxury cars to get the best quality. In general, they have more than just the standard tools and equipment to do the job, including their painting equipment.
Equally as important as the materials used and the painting process is having an experienced technician complete the job. The shop you select should have professionals who have experience working with your luxury vehicle. At 1st Class, our experience includes working with:
- Aston Martin
- Acura NSX
- Range Rover
If they have the experience (and certifications) to do the job, this means it is less likely they will cut corners. You can feel confident the work will be finished correctly, exceeding your expectations.
How do They Color Match?
Never be afraid to ask questions. One area to ask about is the techniques they use to match the correct color with your vehicle. The VIN (vehicle identification number) will show the paint code for the vehicle, which is helpful but not enough. The older the vehicle, the more difficult it is to match the color to the age. Knowing how the shop plans to compensate for color shifts, paint degradation, and other common problems will help provide insight into whether their fresh coat will be perfect or undetectable.
Why 1st Class European Authorized Coachworks?
No matter what reason you’re taking in your luxury vehicle for a paint job, choosing the best is imperative. Our team has a thorough painting process for successful results. We:
- Retrieve the color formula by obtaining the paint code from the vehicle.
- Use our extensive library and database with a sophisticated color spectrometer, so we can mix any color.
- Choose a color variance to mix, which enables us to produce a spray-out panel for color comparison, before applying to the vehicle.
Some of our customers have come to us after taking their vehicle to another shop, where they had hoped to snag a deal. Instead, what they got was an underwhelming job. Essentially, they got what they paid for.
It is important to remember that when selecting a repair/paint shop, the quality of the service is the most important thing. You may want to take your vehicle to a shop that offers incredible price discounts, but a lower price does not ensure quality.
