  • Interesting Facts About Car Paint

    Monday 16 April 2018

    In a 1909 meeting, Henry Ford said, “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” In the century-plus since he said that, manufacturers—including Ford—have relaxed that requirement somewhat, offering vehicles painted in a rainbow of colors, up to and including actual rainbows. When you look around while driving, though, it seems like there are just a few colors in everyday use. That begs the question: “just what are the most... read more

  • Barn Finds

    Monday 19 March 2018

      We’ve all heard the stories about someone going into their grandparents’ barn to discover a rare classic car buried under a coating of dust and junk.

  • Frequent Misconceptions About Paint

    Monday 01 June 2015

    Do my parts come already painted from the factory? Some do, some don’t.  Some parts, like bumpers and moldings come painted from the dealers, but some are blanks that need to be painted.  However, if the painted part comes already painted, there is no guarantee that it’ll match the paint on your car.  Sometimes it is better to mix the paint from scratch to match the tint and shade of your vehicle as closely as possible, especially if your vehicle has been weathered or faded over time... read more

  • Can My Car Get A Sunburn?

    Monday 23 August 2010

    Today's cars frequently have very long lives, and the original paint on many cars last well past 10 years, if maintained properly.  Older vehicles tend to show their age over time, due to constant exposure to the sun, bird poop, sea air, scratches, dings, and suicidal insects.
