Premium, Environmentally Mindful Products

We strive to operate our business in environmentally friendly way and be mindful of our impact on the environment.

We use a top of the line German waterborne paint system, called Glasurit 90, which in addition to allowing for a superb color match and a stunningly slick finish, is also better for the environment compared to the solvent finishes still used at many "old-school" body shops today.
