Step 1 – Preparation
We completely jet wash the vehicle using a degreaser to remove any oil or other contaminants. We will then sand the area to be painted and fill any imperfections with high-grade body filler. Once the whole area to be painted has been sanded & wet flatted, we make further checks with inspection lamps to ensure the surface is perfect before any painting takes place.
Step 2 – Cleansing
Once the surface is perfectly smooth, we use IPA Spirits and clean the panels to a smear free finish. This will remove any grease or oils that may be on the surface. Silicone and other elements will react with paint causing fisheye effect or mottled appearance.
Step 3 – Masking
Overspray Paint will go everywhere and it’s critical to make sure that only the area to be painted is exposed. We use a series of masking tapes and paper roll to cover any areas that are not to be painted,
Step 4 – Spraying
We have the state-of-the-art spraying equipment and spray guns to ensure an even flow. We give the area lots of thin coats to build up layers of paint to achieve a deep finish.
Step 5 Lacquering
Once the base colour is finished we add the lacquer to protect the paint and give a wonderful glossy finish.
Step 6 Baking
We have an extra large booth to bake the paint to the surface. Our booth can accept very large vehicle and bakes at around 70 degrees.
