Step 9 - Paint
When your vehicle is in Paint stage, it is being painted. Colours are mixed on an electronic scale based on the factory paint code. A test card will then be sprayed and compared with the actual vehicle to ensure colour accuracy. All vehicles are sprayed with base coat/clear coat waterborne environmentally product. If the repair area is very close to an adjacent panel, the panel may be blended. Blending means partial colouring of the panel to create a fade-in effect to the original color, which will enhance the visual effect of an invisible repair. The paint is then baked in our paint oven to ensure a factory like durable finish. All paintwork preformed at Dana’s Collision Center/CSN is backed by Dana’s Collision Center/CSN limited nationwide lifetime guarantee.
