We’re a Manufacturer Certified Collision Repair Shop
with decades of experience
Knowledge is power, but in collision repair, knowledge is also peace of mind. How we get your car back to normal after an accident is no mystery. We’ve broken down the basics of the repair process to give you a better idea of what goes on when you bring your vehicle to Hollingsworth Auto Service, a Manufacturer Certified Collision Repair Shop.
Before any work is done on your vehicle, our staff will do a thorough damage assessment and examine the critical safety systems of your vehicle. After everything has been inspected, they will explain which areas of your vehicle require repair, and answer any questions you may have about the repair process.
First, the original layers of paint are removed, dents are taken out and the vehicle body is prepared for refinishing. The repair area is cleaned, sanded and filled with body-repair material – twice, to ensure a perfectly clean and smooth surface. Any bare sheet metal is covered with a two-component primer to protect against corrosion.
Preparations start for applying the color coat. The vehicle is covered to protect it from overspray. A primer surfacer is applied to seal the substrate and guarantee good adhesion of paint. After the surfacer hardens, it is sanded and cleaned.
Next, the paint is mixed to match the exact color of your vehicle. Then the color coat is applied in a spray booth.
Finally, a clear coat is applied to ensure the gloss and texture of the repaired areas are identical in every way to the original finish. The clear coat also provides protection against fading, and it guarantees that your vehicle will keep its beautiful color for a very long time.
