In order to qualify, painting professionals receive special factory training. And the shops are evaluated carefully for professionalism, reliability, proper equipment, safety procedures and consistently high performance.

These high standards are necessary to avoid finish failure that could be caused by improper application procedures, inferior materials or both. At Culver Auto Body Shop, painters use only approved products and procedures. This is your assurance of PPG performance and durability.

Caring for 
your Finish
Once you've had your vehicle refinished with PPG, you'll want to keep it looking the best it can. Here are some tips:
  • Wash your vehicle regularly using only clear water for the first 30 days. After 30 days, a mild dish detergent or soap and water can be used to remove road film. Avoid harsh detergents.
  • Rinse with clear water. Dry with a chamois or soft cloth.
  • It's unlikely that your new PPG finish will ever require waxing. Avoid the use of any wax for at least three months.
  • Avoid spilling gasoline on your finish. In the event of a spill, allow the fuel to evaporate for an hour. Then wash with a mild dish detergent and water. Rinse.
