Camper Vans and Light Commercial Vehicles Full Respray

We offer a complete full respray for Camper Vans and other light Commercial vehicles.
At Vehicle Bodywork Repairs in Cardiff, paintwork dents and scratches are our speciality. We use the latest technology and modern equipment to restore the paintwork on your vehicle. Light commercial vehicles can be worked on too, as we own a commercial spray oven that accommodates vehicles weighing up to 7.5 tonnes. We have the full spectrum of colours to choose from and can offer, solid, metallic and pearlescent paints for your project. Please get in touch today for a quote.

Procedure

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.

The Bodyshop Repair Process

The bodyshop repair process can differ from job to job, but it often follows these steps. First of course is the no obligation free quotation. If the customer is happy to proceed with the work, we organise for the vehicle to be delivered to Vehicle Bodywork Repairs in Cardiff (we offer a collect and return service to help with this).

Jobs usually take between two and four days to complete, depending on what is needed. This allows for drying time and mopping and finishing off. In our repairs we can use main dealer parts or spurious parts if needed, depending on the age of the vehicle:

Step 1 = Panel beating if needed to reshape panels
Step 2 = Flat, fill and primer
Step 3 = Into the spray booth for spraying
Step 4 = Lacquer and bake
Step 5 = Mop and polish
