These Days Dent Repair is a Whole New Game.

Here is a definition.  Paintless dent repair is also known as paintless dent removal.  It describes a method of removing minor dents from the body of your vehicle.  A wide range of damage can be repaired using paintless dent repair as long as the paint surface is intact.  Paintless dent repair may be used on both aluminum and steel panels.

Paintless dent repair was invented back in 1960.  We weren’t yet a flicker in Grandpa Embry’s eye!  The inventor Oskar Flaig used a hammer handle to push out a small dent, so he would need to apply less filler before painting.  These days the most common PDR techniques utilize metal rods and body picks to push out the dents from the underside of the body panel.

If your vehicle has dents, paintless dent repair may be just the answer for your vehicle.  For all of the latest techniques in body repair you can trust the half-century plus of experience that Don Embry Body Shop brings to the job.  When your car needs body work or painting call The Don Embry Body Shop at (502) 935-1373 and make an appointment at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.

Knowing the Don’ts of our Industry.

We want you to be aware of both sides of the auto body repair industry.  Auto Body shops genuinely take pride in their work, but not every technician is the best in the business. Humans sometimes make mistakes. In some cases, technicians also get paid more if they can move cars through the shop faster. This incentivizes the less careful technicians to cut corners.

Here are some auto body repair mistakes of which to be aware –

1.  Sloppy paint work
2.  Colors that don’t match
3.  Not re-installing the equipment properly
4.  Neglecting to align the wheels
5.  Misaligned panels

Guess what?  Here at the Don Embry Body Shop we look for the same things…and more!  We haven’t been around for more than fifty-five years without paying attention to the smallest details.  If you want quality auto body work done in the Louisville area EVERY time, then let us work on your car.  We are the Don Embry Body Shop at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.  Just call (502) 935-1373.

What are Airbags?

Did you know that when we began serving the Louisville area with the latest techniques in auto body repair there was no such thing as an air bag?  The reason we bring that up is that to stay ahead of the curve we must make sure that our techs are constantly being trained in the latest technology of our industry.

Here are some steps we must take to fix your car’s airbags after an accident –

1.  Resetting the light
2.  If they have been deployed, attempt to put them back in case they are needed again
3.  If necessary, being able to replace them with the same quality and efficiency

Replacing air bags is just on small aspect of the process that we follow in restoring your vehicle’s efficiency to where it was before this unfortunate mishap.  Here at Don Embry Body Shop we adhere to the same principles that our patriarch did well over 50 years ago.  The Don Embry Body Shop is located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.  Call (502) 935-1373.
