The Colors on Parade paint repair processes and methods is our core business. Our system involves the repair of minor surface damage including scratches on panels, bumpers, hoods and deck lids. Our franchisees are trained to duplicate a car's original paint and finish, by custom paint formulations in the mobile laboratory, thus making repairs seamless and invisible. And because we only paint the damaged area, we preserve more of the vehicle's original paint, which keeps costs down and takes less time.
PDR (Paint-less Dent Repair)
PDR is an art that reshapes metal back to its original condition, without affecting the original paint finish. No fillers, sanding, or repainting is required. The finish remains unharmed and the vehicle keeps its original value.
These dents range from damage by shopping carts, other car doors, hail damage and more.
Our interior repair franchisees are trained to restore vinyl, leather, plastic and other surfaces. This includes tinting and blending techniques that guarantee high quality results.
