Clear Bra Installation Testimonial

From: Rocky D.
Service Used: Clear Bra Install

Testimonial:
When I first went to High Tone Auto Body I got a good feeling that Audi was a straight shooter. He dealt with my insurance claim and another dent that was not part of the claim with speed and efficiency and was very flexible with my situation. If I have any more auto body needs I will definitely go to them again.

 

Rocky’s  vehicle needed a hood and fender tip clear bra installation as part of his claim.  Clear bra is a thin paint protection urethane film that is virtually invisible and allows for a clear coat like finish for maximum shine.  Clear bras can protect your vehicle paint from rock chips. Application of Xpel protection film on the hood is generally from 12 -18 inches wide.  It’s the easiest and most elegant way to ensure your hood remains chip free and still be shiny after years and years of driving on our Colorado roads.

Even though Rocky’s insurance claim was done by an Independent Appraiser, we went the extra mile and removed the near by dent for free that was not part of the claim. Rocky learned that there is a difference in how claims are handled by an Independent Appraiser versus how the claim would be handled by High Tone Auto Body that is a partner with many insurance companies and is a participating auto body repair shop in the  Direct Repair Program.  Basically, insurance claims that are done through an Independent Appraiser take longer for approval (3-10 business days), whereas insurance companies that have partnered with High Tone Auto Body generally have a faster turn-around time because everything is done electronically and we are the eye’s and ears for the companies. High Tone Auto Body is there for you and will handle all the insurance paperwork for you regardless of your insurance company once you have filed the claim.

To prevent paint and small auto body repairs, you should seriously consider getting a Clear Bra Installation for your vehicle too.

Removing hailstorm dents from a Grand Cherokee

 

Hailstorms cause large damage to vehicles that are not properly garaged. If it’s a big storm even windshields can break, but the most common vehicle damage is denting of the roof and hood of the car. Hail dents can be as small as a thumbnail and some can measure a few inches in diameter. Removing these dents requires a special technique, called Paintless Dent Removal.

What is Paintless Dent Removal

Paintless Dent Repair or Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a process where dents with up-to a few inches in diameter get removed from the car body without using  any of the conventional methods that require sanding, body filling and painting which takes a lot of time and is expensive. This process is performed by using specialized tools and techniques developed for this kind of job.

Although some think that paintless dent removal is an easy and straightforward process, it is a very skilled work and not everybody can perform a proper PDR. Removing small dents without damaging the paint requires highly trained technicians that can analyze the location, depth, size and shape of the dent so that they can properly perform the extraction process without creating sharp angles between the dented and undented surface in order to avoid paint damage.

Removing dents from a new Grand Cherokee
Removing large dents at the rear end of the Cherokee roof required removal of the back door.

The PDR technician first started by removing the tail gate so he can gain access to the back of the roof and carefully work on the dents. He then worked on the larger dents, and then on the smaller ones. There were a few larger dents that needed more work but with every step the dents were smaller and smaller until the technician flattened out the body work completely.

After all the dents were removed, the technicians put back the rear door, connected all the wiring, and the car was ready for pick-up.

Thanks to the highly skilled work the technician performed, the roof of the car was as good as new. All the dents were removed, there was no damage to the paint and the car looked as if there were no dents ever.
