Car Touch Up – Audi TT Scrape

Car Touch Up – Audi TT Scrape

Car touch up on this Audi was going to be tricky.  This color is discontinued and was a bit rare to begin with so when the customer said it was a pearl gray we didn't know what to expect.  He provided pictures of the damage but most pictures don't show the true, full effects of the colors well.  We admit, we were intimidated by the color as it is so different from most stock paint colors.  We were...

Car Touch Up for Multiple Panels

Car Touch Up for Multiple Panels

Many of our customers don't have us perform car touch up on just a single panel.  People who know they may accumulate a little more over time wait a bit, if they can bare with the initial blemishes.

Car Touch Up on Multiple Paint Damage Types

Car touch up comes in especially handy for those who have a hard time adjusting to their extremely small parking garages.  No matter how this person approached their garage the war was never won. :(  Over $3000 in work at the body shop made much easier on the eyes (and the pocket) by our mobile car touch up services.  This repair was performed right outside that intimidatingly small garage opening....

Horrendous Rock Chipping and Peeling Paint – Car Touch Up

Horrendous Rock Chipping and Peeling Paint – Car Touch Up

Some cars are more prone to chipping, also known as "road rash", caused by highway driving.  Anyone who own's an E36 BMW know's that very well.  Even with this severe case, touch up made a world of difference.  This we charged $400 when the body shop quoted $2000 to repaint the entire front end!  This one also had a bad repaint on the front bumper that made for a particularly horrid paint peeling...

Car Touch Up for High Speed Cars – Chipping and Road Rash

It's something freeway travelers, tailgaters and general speeders are all too familiar with but, believe it or not, car touch up has a solution.  It's an eye-sore on your beauty and no matter how well you take care of the paint, it's gonna happen.  Clear bra application is a great way to dull the effects but, unless you wrap your entire car with it, road rash and chipping are going to be an issue....

Car Touch Up on Audi R8 – Caution: Low bumpers

Car Touch Up on Audi R8 – Caution: Low bumpers

Cars that are lower to the ground tend to need frequent car touch ups.  They look more aggressive and handle better but, in turn, collect more rock chips, road rash and low scrapes.  Chances are you paid a lot of money to either purchase a car that came with this stance stock or you paid a lot of money to modify your car yourself.  Either way, we don't think you should also have to shell out a...

Car Touch Up and Some Heart for Christmas

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,...

Touch Up Car Paint Scrapes

Touch Up Car Paint Scrapes

You don't have to drive a minivan to misjudge proximity. Sometimes a long-nosed car will get you too. Can you imagine what the body shop would charge for this? 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

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...
