Step 8 - Prep
A vehicle in the Prep stage is getting ready for paint. All areas to be painted will be washed down with a solvent to remove all surface contamination. Repaired areas will be sanded and primed to prepare the surface for corrosion protection and for adhesion of the paint. Once cured the primer areas are sanded and the area is thoroughly checked for defects and blown off to remove any remaining dust prior to final masking. The area to be painted is washed again with a water based cleaner. At this point the vehicle is ready for our Quality Control process before moving to the next stage.
