Common Paint Issues
From door dings and scratches, peeling clear coat, and heavy collisions, we fix them all at Paul Bros. Auto Body in University City.
Some cars, like Honda’s for example, are notorious for paint issues such as peeling clear coat. Other models like certain Mustangs have issues with bubbling paint at the hood edges due to galvanic corrosion because aluminum is touching steel. We can repair and repaint small sections or do a full paint re-spray on a car that has some years on it.
Our Garmat downdraft paint booth is state of the art and we use only high-quality paint materials at our shops. We keep our booth clean with regular filter changes to keep contaminants out of the fresh paint.
Color matching is a big part of auto bodywork. So often we see cars on the road in and around University City or throughout Philadelphia with really bad paint matching from other shops – we can’t believe the customer accepted the work!
Automotive Paintwork that matches the original!
Did you know that even on a brand new car, there are variations in the paint color based on what assembly line and what time of day the car or truck was produced? This is called variants, and this is where experienced painters come in to play.
Our paint department has computerized paint mixing equipment and can mix any color of paint on the road, but that paint code is only the baseline. The painter must then take out his variants books and determine which variant of the original paint code to use on your car.
Body shops who either don’t care, or don’t have quality controls in place will often skip this step, and that is why you see cars on the road with mismatched paint.
Commitment to the Environment
Paul Bros. Auto Body is committed to protecting the environment. We were one of the first auto body shops in the Philadelphia area to make the switch to waterborne paint versus the more toxic solvent-based automotive paint. While it is not a requirement in Pennsylvania to spray waterborne paint, we feel that it is our responsibility to do what we can when it comes to our environment.
