The Proper Paint Job for your Vehicle.

A good paint job involves three stages of painting your car properly. A three-stage paint job actually takes more than three processes, not counting the final paint job. Calculating the stages of an automobile paint job includes the number of times the surface of your vehicle has been painted with a different color. The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville are car painting experts.

Here are 3 basic painting stages –

1.  Preparing the surface is just as important as the painting itself.

2.  Primer must be applied to your vehicle.

3.  The proper application of each coat.

When you need your car painted in Louisville, call The Don Embry Body Shop. They have been painting and repairing cars since 1962. That is a time-honored period of expertise. Call The Don Embry Body Shop at (502) 935-1373. You can also drive or have your car towed to 8272 Dixie Highway. Auto painting is just one small part of what they do at thedonembrybodyshop.com.

Paint Blending.

It is a critical part of a successful auto body shop. Blending is defined as the diminished application of paint onto adjacent panels so that there is a smooth transition from the newly painted area to the original vehicle paint. The paint experts at The Don Embry Body Shop have had decades of experience in auto painting.

The process of auto painting is by no means automatic. All automotive paints are assigned codes specific to the color, but there are several variations for each code. Even basic colors like black will have dozens of different shades available. You see…this is not something that you trust to an amateur.

The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville uses Akzo Noble's Sikkens for its refinishing material. It’s okay, you don’t need to know more than that. Only that The Don Embry Body Shop, located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville, was trusted by your grandfather! See their incomparable work by visiting thedonembrybodyshop.com.
