Car Touch Up and Some Heart for Christmas

  We recently had someone call us and say that a co-worker hit their BMW 3 series in their company parking lot and that they needed a quote on car touch up.  Usually, anytime someone says the damage was caused by someone else, and that they know who did it, we remind our customers that if they go through their insurance their premiums won't rise and they aren't responsible for the deductible,...

We can fill holes and touch up your car paint for much less.

It isn't too hard to get a little sideways in a rear wheel drive monster like this Porsche Carrera.  Once that happens, you are at the mercy of all surrounding objects.  This poor bumper met something a little unforgiving.  These kinds of things happen to toys from time to time.  Responsible owners know they can squeeze a few repairs out of any bumper before it's time to be replaced.  If you can deal...

A whole lot more just because it's a Mercedes-Benz and even more because it's am AMG we'd bet. This customer didn't even bother getting a quote from a body shop and we don't blame him. Silver is a hard color to touch up but sometimes we can get pretty...

Car paint damage – Touch up a scrape

Minivans are BIG.  Even all the technology of backup sensors and cameras can't save you sometimes.  Though gold is up there with one of the hardest colors to repair with touch up, sometimes it comes out pretty well and is much less noticeable than if you had just left it alone.  The difficulty is that gold and many very light colors are actually more fleck than actual color.  If you don't get the fleck...

Touch Up for Car Trim

Touch Up for Car Trim

It used to be that any time your car's trim piece was damaged along with the painted panels it meant you had to replace the trim. In many cases it isn't necessary. In this case a large chunk was taken out of the unpainted plastic bumper trim. Unfortunately, we didn't take the "before" picture of this damage in it's original state before we sanded it, but it was quite deep. Any smooth surface is much...
