Painting & Body Work

We use only PPG paint applied with Sata spray guns on all of our work. Starting with top quality products and ending with experience and care, ensures that our customers get the excellence they deserve.

No Body Filler

We repair body work with metal, not body filler. This is very difficult but it is the way it should be done, if it was easy everybody would do it. Test any car we restore with a magnet, it will stick 100% of the time.
