Types of car paint jobs

There are three main types of car paint jobs – whole car painting, spot painting, and clear coat. We’re breaking them down below so you can choose which is best for you.

  • Whole car painting is exactly what is sounds like – our Orlando Toyota Collision techs will paint your entire vehicle a new color. This service can transform your ride and give it a fresh new look, especially if you were dealing with faded, cracked, or peeling paint.
  • Spot painting, on the other hand, is when our techs will only paint certain spots of your vehicle, matching the paint to what color the car currently is. This is well-suited for drivers who have had accident or collision damage and want to return their vehicle to like-new condition.
  • Clear coat painting is when our Toyota auto body techs replace the clear coat on your vehicle. The clear coat is extremely important; not only does it keep your car’s paint looking nice and shiny, it also helps to protect your vehicle’s paint from the heat, sun, debris, and other elements that can do damage over time. If your car is lacking a clear coat or its existing one is peeling, then this is the car paint job for you.

Choosing the right paint color

If you decided that whole car painting is the right route, now it’s time to choose a color. Remember, painting your car can breathe a lot of fresh life into it, but you want to be careful about the hue that you choose. Typically, red, silver, black, or white are the best options because they’re the most popular colors and will offer the best resale value. If you want to go for orange, purple, blue, etc. we can definitely accommodate you, but just remember that these colors are a little less popular and you may get less bang for your buck when you sell or trade in.
