TMC Automotive Painting Process
STEP 1 - BODY REPAIR
Worried about those small dents and unsightly scratches ruining your paint job?
No need to worry. As part of your vehicle's painting, our body repair technicians have mastered the method of eliminating those blemishes down to a Five-Step Process to ensure that your finish is free from those small dents and unsightly scratches.
STEP 2 - SURFACE PREPARATION
Don't overlook the importance of surface repairs. Notice any cracks, scratches, chips or excessive peeling on your vehicle? If you leave these imperfections exposed to the elements without treating, your paint job could seriously suffer. Make sure you repair these issues as soon as possible to give your vehicle a paint job with the smoothest and glossiest finish possible.
STEP 3 - SURFACE SEALER
Have you ever noticed how some paint jobs fail to hold their shine? It could be a matter of that old paint mixing with the new, creating uneven color and gloss. Sealer plays that all-important role of establishing a barrier between the old and new paint. This ensures consistent color and a higher gloss throughout the entire painted surface.
At TMC, we offer three grades of sealer. The right choice is all about durability, and ultimately the amount of prep work needed for your particular vehicle. When it comes to the durability of your vehicle's paint, sealer helps keep consistent shine long after the job is done.
STEP 4 - PAINT SERVICES
Longevity of the paint includes warranty/durability and appearance includes gloss, color match and metallic appearance.
STEP 5 - PROTECTION & FINISH
A new paint job warrants proper protection. At TMC, clear coats are often applied after painting to protect the paint. This final step also ensures an accurate gloss match and provides a seamless repair.
STEP 6 - PROPER CAR CARE
Proper car care can have a major impact on the durability and appearance of your new paint. The right maintenance can help your car hold its color and shine, as well as provide protection from the elements.
When possible, try to:
Park in the shade, but avoid trees;
Avoid driving on sand, salt or loose gravel;
Wash your car regularly.
