The Remarkable Downdraft Paint Booth.

Imagine sitting in your car and suddenly air comes into a booth through a full-length intake chamber then flows down encompassing your vehicle. Then when air reaches the floor, it is pulled onto floor-level with filtered exhaust plenums on both sides. It may sound like futuristic stuff, but around here it is simply business as usual.

How do paint booths work? It is specifically defined as a spray booth with a power-ventilated structure provided to enclose or accommodate a spraying operation to confine and limit the escape of spray, vapor and residue, and to safely conduct or direct them to an exhaust system. See…safety and guaranteed all at the same time!

A downdraft spray paint booth is just one of tools of our trade at one of Louisville’s most trusted auto body shops…The Don Embry Body Shop located for decades at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville. People from miles around come to The Don Embry Body Shop to make their vehicle look like new again. Look us up at and call us at (502) 935-1373.

Putting the Toothpaste Back in the Tube.

Such is the fate of your vehicle’s airbags after an accident. The airbag of a car cannot be fixed after an accident…you must have it replaced! Manufacturers design modern airbags for a single use. When they were first introduced, mechanics could reset some airbags. Today, however, mechanics must replace the safety devices after each deployment.

Here is some advice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration –

  1. Replace any used airbags immediately after a crash.
  2. Never, ever try to do it yourself!
  3. Do not drive your car until the replacement is complete.

Here is one important MUST DO…call The Don Embry Body Shop if you live anywhere in the Louisville area. The staff have repaired air bags since they were first introduced. Yep, The Don Embry Body Shop has been repairing collision damage in Louisville since the early 60’s. You can visit their location at 8272 Dixie Highway or call (502) 935-1373.

Repairing Unibody Damage.

Unibody damage on your vehicle is typically caused by a major accident and leaves the frame of the car weaker than it originally was. In fact, unibody damage may be partially repaired. It is however, a potential major liability for anyone who owns the vehicle because another accident could result in catastrophe.

A car can look like it has never been in an accident before, and have no visible signs of damage, but the frame could still be compromised. Many people don’t find out about unibody issues until they start having other problems with the car. Does it pull to one side? A great body shop can inspect your car for frame damage.

The message here is that The Don Embry Body Shop is a great place to bring that used car before you decide to make it your own. The Don Embry Body Shop is there for you when it comes to inspecting vehicles for unibody damage in the Louisville area. They are located at 8272 Dixie Highway. Call ahead (502) 935-1373.

Car Accidents Don’t Always Just Affect the Frame.

There may be plenty of hidden damage if your vehicle has been involved in an accident.  Car owners in the Louisville area might also experience one or more car windows and their power sources that are broken or badly damaged.  In such cases your best option is to get it (them) repaired by a reliable professional.

For reliable service, you must go to professionals who are experienced in the field of power window repair.  Some repairing shops may charge very little, but beware because they may be doing that with cheap quality parts which eventually interfere in the efficiency of your vehicle in the future.  That’s NOT acceptable!

When The Don Embry Body Shop repairs a collision damaged vehicle they pay attention to each and every aspect including the frame, suspension, keyless entry, power windows, door hinges, etc.  When Don himself opened the business back in 1962 he left no stone unturned and that’s the way it is today at The Don Embry Body Shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.
