As a car collector, you’re probably very particular about even the tiniest bit of paint damage on your vehicles. You probably also know that having a panel resprayed at a body shop could drastically reduce the value of your car. Even though the respray may have been for a single rock-chip, that extra layer of paint will set off alarms for any potential buyer. If you don’t have the paperwork to show that there was no major damage, it will be hard to convince someone otherwise. It’s also very likely that the resprayed panel will no longer match the rest of the car perfectly. In tact original paint is always a good sign because it shows that the car has been well taken care of.
Touch-Up or Body Shop?
It may seem necessary to take your car to the body shop, but there’s another option! In the case of tiny rock chips and light scratches, a skilled touch-up artist can make the minor damage unnoticeable. Touch-up will make the damaged area look much better (in some cases, good as new) and protect it from rust and further chipping. You’ll spend a whole lot less money, maintain the original paint job, and it’ll take less than an hour! Click here to learn more about repair options for different types of paint damage.
Mobile Service for Car Collectors
We’re PaintCraft, the best mobile car paint touch-up company in Southern California. Owner and paint technician, Steve Bode, has been mastering the craft for the last 15 years. We use the Dr. Colorchip system exclusively because it’s much easier to use than traditional touch-up paint and eliminates paint blobs. Steve has actually been using the system longer than anyone else. He was the first to be trained, and was taught by the creator of Dr. Colorchip himself! We work on everything from the most expensive cars in the world to your every day driver. We’re very well known in Porsche circles, work for many BMW dealerships, and private car collections.
We mainly service the North Orange County and South Bay areas, but still feel free to send us a message if you’re outside of our service area. We’ll do our best to help you out! Let us help you save some money and retain your car’s value.
