Minor vehicle damage like dents, scuffs and scratches to panels, bumpers, wheel arches, alloy wheels and interior trim are inevitable in today's driving conditions. Vehicle owners have invariably made a substantial investment and are anxious to maintain their purchases in pristine condition thus protecting residual values.
Paint Pallet Auto Bodies can limit the repair to the damaged area only and not the complete panel. Using specially formulated paints and chemicals, factory paint finishes can be restored giving a near perfect job. The restored repair area is virtually undetectable from the original factory paint finish and is completed in hours rather than days thus providing significant cost and time savings to you.
Especially unsightly on dark coloured paintwork and mainly occurring at the front of the vehicle. Paint is mixed to match the car and spray applied into the chip itself. Although not as aesthetically pleasing as a full panel re-spray, it is a cheaper alternative, which reduces the contrast between primer and colour coat whilst providing a degree of protection against the onset of corrosion.
Only the scratched area itself is repaired and not the entire panel. Using our DUPONT fan deck system it is possible to select the actual colour shade where a multi-shade coloured panel has been damaged or paintwork has faded as a result of ultraviolet exposure and weathering. The scratch is sanded and/or filler/primer applied to re-instate the damaged surface to its true level, The area is then re-coloured, lacquered and blended into the adjacent panel area to provide a near perfect match to the factory finish each time.
Exterior mouldings, mirror casings, bumpers and motorcycle fairings, which have become cracked, need not necessarily be replaced. In many cases plastic welding can remedy the crack and subsequent re-finishing techniques makes the part look as good as new at a fraction of replacement costs. Texture and colour is applied to the plastic component to ensure remedial works exactly replicate the original factory fitted item.
Colour Coded Bumper Scuff
Exterior mouldings, mirror casings, bumpers and motorcycle fairings, which have become scuffed, need not be fully painted. Texture (where necessary) and matching colour is applied to the plastic component then lacquered to ensure remedial works exactly replicate the original factory fitted item.
Exterior mirror casings which have become cracked or scuffed, need not be fully painted or replaced. Matching colour is applied to the plastic component then lacquered to ensure remedial works exactly replicate the original factory fitted item.
Textured Bumper Scuff
Exterior non-colour-coded trim, mouldings and bumpers which have become scuffed, need not necessarily be replaced. Gouges and scrapes in the base plastic are repaired with a compatible filler which is then textured (where required) and finished with a matching colour to ensure remedial works exactly replicate the original factory fitted item.
Kerbed and scuffed alloys if left un-repaired can result in the spread of oxidation leading to more expensive repairs at a later date. Without removing the wheel from the tyre or even the wheel from the vehicle we can repair paint damage on site restoring the wheel to its original factory finish.
