The Paint Works Process

Our super-modern paint booth is not what sets us apart. It's how we plan and execute on your great paint concept.


1. Consult

Consult – Bring your vehicle to us or we’ll come to you. Meet with our owner Justin Vermillion for a tour the facility and discuss ideas for your project. Old polaroids, magazines, books or even pictures off your smartphone are enough to get the ball rolling. Once we understand the depth of your wants whether it be a straight forward repaint or full strip down and body repair we’ll provide you with a quote that can’t be beat for quality and turnaround time on your project .

2. Strip down and disassembly

Depending on where your final paint needs take us this is where we get down and dirty stiriping, media blasting, cutting out rust, replacing panels, and straightening out panels and gaps for proper fitment.

3. Body Work

We have some of the best and brightest auto body technicians in the Midwest that are masters in final body prep. They lay down some of the straightest body lines and gaps as well. A great paint job is only as good as the painstaking work it takes to make a body straight and correct. Our guys are true artists at their craft.

4. Paint

This is where the fun begins! All the fruits of our body work labor come full front and center when the color starts to go on. The intensive labor doesn’t stop here though. Our paint tech is an absolute perfectionist that spends hours spraying multiple layers of primers, paint, and clear coat with multiple steps of sanding, buffing, and polishing to create the ultimate paint finish. Attention to detail is a must.

5. Finish & Cure

This is where the final polishing happens and trim/emblems are reinstalled and anything else that was removed for painting. We’ll do a photo shoot of your vehicle for advertising and social media as well. Finally it’s off to the shows and the open road.
