Auto Body Repair
Before any work is done on your vehicle, our staff will do a thorough damage assessment and examine the critical safety systems of your vehicle. After everything has been inspected, they will explain which areas of your vehicle require repair, and answer any questions you may have about the repair process.

Most of today’s modern automobiles are of unibody construction. Unibody repairs need special equipment, operated by qualified technicians. At New Lusitana our technicians use only the finest material and equipment. Each vehicle is repaired to factory specifications. The proper repair of inside. damage is critical to safety and performance of any vehicle.

First, the original layers of paint are removed, dents are taken out and the vehicle body is prepared for refinishing. The repair area is cleaned, sanded and filled with body-repair material – twice, to ensure a perfectly clean and smooth surface. Any bare sheet metal is covered with a two-component primer to protect against corrosion.

Preparations start for applying the color coat. The vehicle is covered to protect it from overspray. A primer surfacer is applied to seal the substrate and guarantee good adhesion of paint. After the surfacer hardens, it is sanded and cleaned.

Next, the paint is mixed to match the exact color of your vehicle. Then the color coat is applied in a downdraft spray booth.

Finally, a clearcoat is applied to ensure the gloss and texture of the repaired areas are identical in every way to the original finish. The clearcoat also provides protection against fading, and it guarantees that your vehicle will keep its beautiful color for a very long time.
