Auto Body Secrets - Conroe

Auto body repair and collision repair, over 30 years experience to repair your vehicle correctly.Growing up in western NY, I was always a self taught youngster. It seemed I was mechanically inclined at an early age, I started to take apart my bicycles and lawnmowers to see how they worked. I was getting pretty good at fixing things and my interest grew as my toys got bigger. However, when I got my first car at sixteen I seemed to be more interested in the way it looked than how it ran. So I broke out the K-mart “bondo” and started fixing the rust. How hard could it be? Wasn’t pretty, but I wasn’t too disappointed, what did a teenager know anyway? I had to pay a guy to paint the ca,r because the front yard would not do the trick.Moving forward, I graduated from Alfred State College with an AOS degree in auto collision repair, and I was on my way. Western NY is notorious for rusted out vehicles and I had my fill of rust repair. So onward to Texas and hence my career in the auto body repair field began.There is no substitute for real world experience, but continuing education is always helpful, especially with so many technological advances on vehicles these days.

Additional Information

If you are wondering about auto paint matching, there are a few things to understand first about why it doesn’t match.auto paint matching There can be so many variations of a color for many different reasons that it is hard to believe we can even get a good match to begin with. Colors are made up of many different pigments with metallics and/or pearls added in. When talking about auto paint matching, the original paint is produced for that line of cars and sprayed on your car at the factory.

They use an automated system to do this. The batch of one color may have a touch of the last color still present in the system, the formula could be off slightly between different plants, or possibly the paint manufacturer got a pigment from a different supplier. There can be many variables but the bottom line is the job of the body shop is to match that color. The paint manufacturers like PPG, DuPont, Sherwin Williams, and others have the task of producing color chips with variables of each production color. So some color codes can have a few variances up to many ( 10-15). We take these samples and compare them to the vehicle, picking the closest one.

Now we can spray that out on a test card for our auto paint matching comparison. The color can change just by our paint spraying techniques, reducers we use, and the type of spray gun we have. Now we take a look at the sample and it looks good, but looking at the angle it does not. The paint can look lighter , darker, muddier, different cast, less/more metallic (glitter) or anything but what we are after. So at this point we try to tint the color the best we can get it. Auto paint matching is not always an exact science and does require some skill and experience.
