Today’s Example of Collision Repair and Repaint Services in Florida


One of the most common collision repairs is body work of the front of the car, mainly the hood and sides, as well as bumper repair or replacement.



This Chevrolet Impala suffered a light collision where the hood and front bumper was severely damaged, as well as the body panels around the front wells. The front headlights ,front fenders and the radiator support also suffered damage, including the radiator and A/C condenser, that needed a proper evacuation and recycle, because the Freon is hazardous and must not be vented out into the atmosphere.



First we took the damaged front bumper to get free access to the undercarriage and inner wheelhouses. Then we took some measurements on the frame machine to check the factory measurements, finding that the inner sheet metal needed a little love.



We put a brand new radiator support, new hood, right and left front fenders. We also replaced the side pan­els. Once we aligned all the sheetmetal we sent it to the downdraft paint booth. It took a cou­ple of rounds to get the base color an even con­sis­tency on the hood and side panels. To top it off,  we added a ure­thane clear coat  to get a nice, shin­ing finish.




After all the paint work was done, we attached the bumper and aimed the head­lights, checked the wiring to make sure every­thing works prop­erly, and the car was ready to roll off the lot. But we usu­ally go the extra mile and gave this Chevy Impala a thor­ough inside and out cleanup. The client was more than happy with the work we’ve done.






Palm Beach Customs no longer focuses on collision repair, but we like to show you what we've done! Our experience with collision has given us an intimate knowledge of how to ensure that your classic and muscle car is built to look good AND be safe.
