Tucson Auto Body Restoration You Can Rely On

At Cutting Edge Collision Center, we know how great an auto body restoration project can be. There is something about going onto the patio, into the garage, or wherever you may keep your project car.

At Cutting Edge, we have all the knowledge, tools, and professional skills to bring your old car back to life. We can work with you to make sure that your auto body restoration project goes according to your vision. Make your end product a real head-turner.

Restoring a classic car made easy by Cutting Edge.

Cutting Edge Collision Center is the one-stop auto body shop for Tucson auto restoration. We spare no details when restoring any automobile. Not only do we make cars look brand new again, but we also do so in an ecologically-sound manner. As an example, we “blast” your car's surface using crushed walnut shells for the blast media. This product has no negative effect on the environment. By completely removing the old finish, we can start from scratch and ensure that the new finish is top notch. We make sure its application is correct. This allows us the confidence to warranty our work for as long as you own your vehicle.

Here are a just few basic things that must be done to fully and properly restore a vehicle:

  • Strip down the paint, both inside and outside to the bare metal
  • Sandblast or replace any panels that appear to be rusty or worn
  • Prime the parts and make sure there is no settled dust on the exterior
  • Remove floor and door panels, cleaning them with a solvent and assuring proper functionality
  • Take out the old seats and upholstery and replace them as needed
  • Clean or replace all small working parts, such as door handles, glove box buttons, sun visors, etc.
  • Apply a finish that is historically original, or a color that fits your taste

Many do not realize that when a vehicle undergoes proper restoration, the body must be completely taken apart and reassembled two to three times. This allows us to paint all of the intricate areas, such as the floorboards, the inside of the doors, etc. Taking the vehicle apart and putting it back together also allows us to match up the joints and seams where panels meet panels. When we restore a vehicle, we ensure that it leaves our shop in the same, if not better, condition than it originally left the factory.

This article gives you a very broad idea of what needs to be done to properly restore a vehicle. The truth is that we have barely even scratched the surface (no pun intended). If you have a vehicle that you want to be restored to pristine condition, be sure to bring it into our Tucson auto body shop so we can give you that car you've been dreaming about.
