First we run your vehicle through:
Then comes the Parr Repair Process:
The Body Shop
- Our technicians coordinate with each other to ensure they have all necessary parts for your vehicle.
- Repairs start here and include panel replacement and possible light frame pulling.
The Refinish Shop
- Once your vehicle is finished in the body shop, it moves to prep and paint.
- We’ve already got your paint colour chosen and most often, the paint mixed. But there’s a few steps ahead of spraying on colour!
- We carefully prep your vehicle, then clean it, mask it and get it ready for our techs to spray the PPG Envirobase colour.
- Base coat is finished off with PPG Envirobase Clear Coat.
- This is where we put your vehicle all back together again.
- The length of time in assembly depends on how much of the vehicle was taken apart during the repair process.
- At this point, we may send your vehicle out for any suspension/mechanical repairs; for example, a wheel alignment if required.
- Your vehicle goes through our outgoing detail process.
- We do a thorough inspection ensuring that all items in the Parr Prescription are completed.
- We call you when the keys cross our front desk and it’s ready for pick up!
