Classic Car Painting

The paint job determines how a car looks – this is especially true for classic cars. With time, classic cars lose the quality of their painting – the body of the car will look less shiny, the car might start looking antiquated and in disrepair, and in extreme circumstances, there could be patches in the paint job leaving the vehicle’s bare metal on full display. But, no need to worry – with DoctorClassic’s car restoration paint job, you’ll see your car completely renewed and looking in top shape – read on to learn more about our service.

What Should You Pay Attention to Before The Paint Job Starts?

A classic car repainting job is quite complex, and you need to choose the service of a team you trust to get the job done correctly with standards agreeable to you. At DoctorClassic, we aim to provide a comprehensive car restoration and repainting service that can satisfy the high expectations of our highly valued clients.

That’s why the car needs to go through a thorough inspection to assess the extent of the damage done to the car’s body and painting, and then, the process, expected results, and extra restoration is discussed with the client – here at DoctorClassic, we make sure we have a clear understanding with the client ensuring we’re able to deliver the results they expect before going forward with the restoration.

The painting process

At DoctorClassic, we have a methodological paint process that aims to maximize the quality of the paint job and restore look and feel of classic cars with a range of techniques and methods:

Choosing the paint

What’s the aim of the paint job? Do you want to restore the classic car to its original colour or do you want an entirely new paint? When restoring a classic car, one must pay attention to quality and the source of the materials used, and this includes paints. That’s why DoctorClassic makes sure to employ only the highest grade original material. The paint selection process involves contacting the original manufacturer and asking for similar grade paints to ensure the restoration process has truly remarkable results.

Preparing a classic car to paint restoration

After choosing the paint, it is time to adequately prepare the vehicle for the paint job. A range of measures needs to be taken before the painting begins.

  • First of all, the classic car needs to be sandblasted and all the old traces of the old painting needs to be removed. The work can’t get done if the vehicle has spots of old paints all over it, obviously.
  • Secondly, after ensuring the surface is smooth and clean and ready to receive the painting, it is time to rustproof it. This is especially true for classic vehicles – you don’t want your already degraded and old vehicle body to degrade more due to corrosion, and preventative measures are a must at this stage. Especially since a new paint job might initially increase the risk of corrosion. Applying a rustproof coating will ensure the longterm health of your vehicle’s body.

Applying the paint

After ensuring the rustproof coating is dried up and the vehicle’s body is ready for the paint applied, work on the restoration begins. Our professional team, using the highest quality vehicle paints, ensures restoring and painting classic cars’ bodies go as desired. You’ll be sure the car restoration will result in the desired outcome you agreed on with DoctorClassic before.
