Base coat clear coat finishes are what car manufacturers’ use when building new vehicles since 1985. Base coat - clear coat is also known as a two-stage finish. The first stage of the finish is the color you choose. Once that has dried, clear coat is applied over the base coat. The clear coat is what provides the gloss and protective layer that contribute to the longevity of the paint job. Base coat - clear coat finishes are the most durable and maintenance free of all finishes and the best option for color match. They are also the most expensive. Single stage finishes uses a technology that allows the color and protective resin to be applied in one single step and because of this can be more difficult to color match.

All of our paint jobs are guaranteed for varying lengths of time. However, you can significantly increase the life of your paint job by keeping it washed and waxed.
Without seeing the car in person, it's nearly impossible to provide an accurate quote. It is very common for vehicles to require additional prep to ensure the smoothest finish possible. This could include peeling, delaminating or cracks in your old finish, which are difficult to spot in pictures.

DO · Wash the vehicle by hand with cool water and a very mild car wash solution using a soft cloth or sponge. · Always use clean fresh water. Wash your vehicle in the shade in first 30 days.
DON'T · Do not use a commercial car wash in first 30 days. Stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface. · Do not "dry wipe" your vehicle. Dry wiping can scratch the finish. · Do not drive on gravel roads. Chipping the finish is easily done in the first 30 days. · Avoid parking under trees and utility lines which are likely to attract birds. Bird droppings have a high acid content and will damage a freshly painted surface.
DON'T · Do not wax or polish the vehicle in first 90 days. This will allow the finish to dry and harden completely.
