No matter what type of paint job you choose, it’s not a one-step process. Once you bring your vehicle to our Winston Salem, NC shop, we must prep the vehicle for the new paint. We start by removing all the dirt and grease and sanding the vehicle.
We then apply one to two coats of primer and sand it smooth before we can apply the new paint. Once the primer is on, the next steps depend on the type of paint you choose. Some paints do not require a clear coat over the paint, while others do.
And, if you choose a specialty paint job, such as candy apple, there are several steps. Candy apple uses many coats of lightly tinted paint in the color you want. The most popular is candy apple red, which has a gold base and six or more coats of lightly tinted clear paint, depending on how deep you want the red to look.
