Spray Booth & Prep Deck
We utilize the most advanced paint equipment in the industry to ensure a “factory look” finish in our new state-of-the-art paint booth. This system provides the cleanest environment possible for refinishing vehicles. Our drive-through downdraft preparation deck accommodates emergency vehicles i.e. EMS and fire trucks. Our heated downdraft bake booth cures the paint to ensure a finish that is guaranteed for as long as you own your vehicle.
All our paint is mixed with a computerized paint system that uses LED technology to deliver extreme precision via 4 angles and the ability to read flake size with the advanced handheld Spectrophotometer Technology. The superior controls allow our experienced painters to blend your paint color perfectly no matter how complex.
Using advanced optic technology, Acquire Plus EFX looks deep into the paint film to acquire the flake and color characteristics that are the keys to determining a consistently perfect color match to any make or model. It also assists us in achieving the most accurate color match possible of complicated paints i.e. metallic, pearl and effect colors — faster and easier than ever before. It offers many advantages over current “camera” technology.
Our paint technicians use the latest in eco-friendly waterborne paint technology by Axalta Coating Systems (ANZ), (formerly DuPont Performance Coatings), to restore original showroom finishes on every vehicle. Standoblue has received global OEM approval from the top manufacturers around the world. It delivers exceptional results with a 1.5 coat continuous application process. We’re proud to be among the first auto body repair centers in Michigan to use these high-end environmentally friendly paints while ensuring a durable, long lasting finish for your vehicle.
