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.

What about Aluminum Welding Auto Body Repair?

When The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville applies aluminum panels for automotive use it is nothing new for them at all. Many of your vehicle parts have been made with aluminum for years.

Is it Totaled…or Not?

If you’ve been in an accident, your car may have taken a serious beating. If so, it will probably be considered totaled by your insurance company. But what does it really mean if your car is totaled, and what do you do about it? The Don Embry Body Shop of Louisville wants you to be informed.

A car is considered totaled if and when it is deemed to be a total loss after something unexpected occurs. Your insurance provider then determines your car to be totaled when the vehicle’s cost for repairs including its salvage value equates to more than the actual cash value of the vehicle itself.

The Don Embry Body Shop pledges to get you back on the roads of the Louisville area if we are given the opportunity. That was the pledge of our founder Don Embry sixty years ago and it continues to be today. For the full story please visit our website at thedonembrybodyshop.com.
