Terminology

  • Spot job - partial paint of car to repair damage.
  • Single Stage - Only one type of paint is applied. This is applied "wet" and is not intended to be clearcoated.
  • Basecoat/clearcoat- Basecoat is the paint which goes under the clear. This dries dull and has to be clearcoated over.
  • Sealer - This is the primer that is applied directly before basecoat (no sanding is required after applying the sealer.
  • Spot wetsand and buff - go around and wetsand most specs of dirt.
  • Partial wetsand and buff- We'll wetsand and buff the larger areas of the car.
  • Full wetsand and buff- We wetsand the complete car dull, then the vehicle is buffed (only exposed areas get wetsanded and buffed)
