Automotive Refinishing in Maryville and Sevierville, TN

Here at Stinnett Collision, we have years of experience refinishing all makes and models to factory standards.

Refinishing Process Steps:

  • Preparation: The first step in the refinishing process is to prepare the vehicle for painting. This may involve cleaning the bodywork, removing any dirt or debris, and masking off any areas that do not need to be painted.
  • Surface Preparation: After the vehicle has been cleaned and masked, the next step is to prepare the bodywork surface for painting. This may involve sanding or grinding the surface to create a smooth and even surface for paint to adhere to.
  • Primer Application: Once the surface has been prepared, a layer of primer is applied to the bodywork. This helps to provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to, as well as to protect the bodywork from rust and other types of damage.
  • Paint Mixing: The next step is to mix the paint. This involves selecting the appropriate paint color and mixing it with the correct amount of hardener and reducer to create a paint mixture that will adhere properly to the vehicle’s bodywork.
  • Paint Application: After the paint has been mixed, it is applied to the bodywork using a spray gun. Multiple coats of paint may be required to achieve the desired color and finish, and each coat must be allowed to dry properly before the next one is applied.
  • Clear Coat Application: Once the final coat of paint has been applied, a layer of clear coat is applied to the bodywork. This helps to protect the paint from damage, as well as to provide a glossy finish.
  • Final Finishing: After the clear coat has been applied, any necessary finishing touches are made to the vehicle. This may involve removing any masking tape or paper, as well as polishing the bodywork to create a smooth and glossy finish.
  • Quality Control: The final step in the automotive refinishing process is to perform a quality control check to ensure that the paint job has been completed to a high standard. This may involve inspecting the finish for any defects or imperfections, as well as testing the finish for durability and resistance to weather and other types of damage.
