Auto Body Repair
Keeping your vehicle in top condition is important in order to maximize its resale value and keep you and your passengers safe. Since our vehicles are susceptible to damage from traffic accidents and environmental hazards such as: dirt, air pollution and sun; it is likely that you will have to make at least one trip to an auto body shop. With today’s advanced technology and equipment, we offer expert services to meet all of your motor vehicle paint and repair needs.
Paint Color Matching
Restoring your vehicle’s paint has become easier with today’s computer-based color matching systems. Repair paint systems analyze paint and color tones to accurately match your car’s color, regardless of its model or manufacturer.
Computerized Measuring Systems
Whether you are involved in a minor fender bender or a major collision, there could be damage to your vehicle that is not readily apparent. Computerized laser measuring systems can detect hidden damage that visual inspections can miss. This system also acts as a guide to ensure that structural repairs are done to correct specifications. Computerized measuring systems provide documentation of your vehicle’s condition before, during and after the repairs have been made.
With today’s vehicles becoming increasingly complex, state-of-the-art equipment is used for the precise, technical work needed to straighten a damaged frame. Auto body technicians chain or clamp frames and sections to machines that use hydraulic pressure to align the damaged parts of the car.
Eco Friendly Paint
Sherwin-Williams is being recognized in the Designing Greener Chemicals category for Water-Based Acrylic Alkyd Technology (WBAAT).
Oil-based “alkyd” paints have high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that can become air pollutants as the paint dries. But now the Sherwin-Williams R&D Innovation Excellence team has developed water-based acrylic alkyd paint, made from soybean oil and recycled plastic bottles that cut VOC content by 60% .
GNB Collision offers a paintless dent removal technique to repair dings, dents, creases and hail damage. Specialized tools are used to access the area behind the damage. The metal is then gently pushed back to its original form, preserving the exterior finish and structural integrity of the vehicle.
Metal/Composite Panel Bonding
To maximize the life and performance of your vehicle, here is a list of items you should check depending on the time and season. Some of these parts of your vehicle should be checked regularly, and others only in the long run. Be sure to follow your car maintenance schedule and service interval record.
- Change your oil and oil filter
Oil is your engine’s life blood. It serves as a lubricant, keeping important engine parts from grinding against each other and destroying the engine. Motor oil not changed regularly can also damage your engine as accumulated contaminants cause friction, rubbing parts together.
- Tire Check
The only thing separating your car from the road is its tires. They need to be properly inflated to do their job, as well as to lessen the chance of a blowout.
You probably know how to add air to your tires. What you may not know is the correct tire pressure. We will get that done for you and let you know the correct tire pressure of your car.
- Inspect all other fluids
Motor oil isn’t the only fluid to check. Your car has brake and transmission fluids, coolant, and washer fluid.
- Examine belts and hoses
If you want to go one step beyond basic routine car maintenance, then inspect the hoses and belts in the engine bay. These hoses direct coolant flow to ensure the engine doesn’t overheat. If a hose has separated or shows cracks or bulges, then have it replaced. Similarly, check the belts too. The timing belt, as found in most cars and small SUVs, is critical to the operation of your engine.
- Air Filter
Your engine’s air filter is what regulates the air that flows into your engine and helps keep out debris and particulate. By making certain that your air filter is flowing properly, you can improve your fuel efficiency, decrease your emissions, and help ensure the life of your engine.
- Spark Plugs
The spark plugs in your engine ignite the gas and air mixture that ultimately powers your vehicle . If your spark plugs aren’t functioning properly, your engine will lose power and won’t run at optimal capacity. We will check and replace any faulty spark plugs depending on vehicle mfr recommendations or when you feel a decrease in your engine’s power.
- Battery Performance Check
Your car battery is one of the most important components for your vehicle to run. A car battery supplies large amounts of electrical current for the starter, engine and other electronic accessories in the vehicle. Extreme temperatures affect the performance of the battery so regular battery testing will ensure that battery will perform when you need it to.
