Paint FAQ’s


Can you match the color of the factory paint?

Yes we have access to multiple tools that help us get a great match on your vehicle. From a digital spectrometer that scans your existing finish and matches it to one of the many alternate formulas available in PPG’s color database, to our highly trained paint technician who hand tints colors to insure the proper match.

How long does it take before the paint is dry enough on my vehicle to safely pick it up?

All our finishes are baked on in our state of the art paint booth. The vehicles are safe to handle as soon as they come out of the booth.

If i want to change the color of my vehicle, can you do that?

Absolutely. We have many options when it comes to complete color changes. Additional charges do apply if you want inside your door jambs, under hood, and trunk changed as well.

Do you have samples of colors I can look at to pick out a new color for my vehicle?

Yes. We have a wide selection of color chips organized by color class, solid, metallic, pearls. We also have a selection of custom colors from PPG’s Vibrance Collection.

How do I care for my newly painted vehicle?

You can hand wash you car with a mild car wash solution and a soft sponge as soon as the next day. Avoid “dry wiping” your vehicle as it can leave scratch marks. Try to avoid parking under trees or utility wires as tree sap and bird droppings can damage a freshly painted finish. Avoid any wax for the first 3 months as the paint fully cures, and avoid commercial car washed with stiff brushes that can damage your new finish.

Can I wax my vehicle after I pick it up?

You want to wait at least 60 days before applying any sort of wax or sealant. Even though the paint is safe to touch, wash, drive around, it is still outgassing. You want to allow this to complete before sealing or waxing the new finish.
