Body and rust repair are dying arts these days as body shops typically remove a panel and replace it with a factory knock off and simply repaint it. Paint colour matching has advanced well, but when you have a classic vehicle with a minor rust spot or blemish, you want to maintain originality as much as possible. This is where Resto Shop shines.
Is your paint fading or cracking? Has it lost its luster? Is your vehicle older than 1985 and the paint type is unknown? We have answers for these questions, whether you have single stage acrylic / enamel or lacquer, or base clear, or a pearl tri-coat. We will detail options for you to restore your vehicle's shine and restore its value.
