Paint Touch Up & Rock Chip Repair


Here at Northwest Auto Salon we believe in providing our customers with as many reconditioning options as possible for their vehicle. As many of our clients know, we are proponents for applying clear bra paint protection film from the very beginning of new car ownership, but we also realize that not every car is bought new or even tip-top shape at the point of sale. In many cases, daily driven vehicles are left unprotected and suffer the consequences at the whims of the open road. So what can be done about a car with that’s left peppered with paint chips and scratches from debris? The simple solution is our in-house paint touch up service!

With hundreds of automotive paint colors in stock, we have access to a perfect paint match for your personal vehicle. On top of availability, we now have the capacity to mix touch up paint on-site & in-house for same day service! Our automotive paint touch up is carefully applied by hand with a selection specialized micro-applicators, ensuring blobs and excessive, extraneous touch up application is avoided at all cost. As always, every vehicle requires a different level of attention, as no car or chip is created equal. For this reason, NWAS paint touch up and rock chip repair services are billed hourly with a minimum of 1 hour, guaranteeing a proper color match, ample application time, time to dry, as well as repeat applications if necessary. Whether your vehicle just needs minor touch up, or is riddled with 20+ chips throughout, we have what it takes to make any unfortunate paint situation drastically improve. If your vehicle is also plagued with unsightly dings & dents, it may be worth bundling our paint touch up & rock chip service with a paintless dent repair treatment – the result of which could save you hundreds if not thousands in repairs & respraying at a body shop in near future.
Adding the application of touch up paint for your car or truck is encouraged at the time of an exterior detail appointment to save money overall and experience less downtime. If you are looking to only have rock chip repair done, depending on the condition, may still require several hours for the work to be completed. The minimum exterior service at the time of a touch up appointment is an exterior hand wash starting at $65. Touch up application is done hourly at $100, minimum 1 hour. We are able to custom mix your color if necessary for an additional $125 one time charge per visit which includes an hour of touchup. Aside from the installation and repair of your chips, NWAS may also provide you with touch up paint for future visits by special request. Our hourly service takes into consideration all necessary time to prepare the working areas by removing any rust, specialized primers if needed, cleaning and removing wax/polish build up, all prior to the application. Upon paint touch up repair, we also cure the paint to make sure it is dry to the touch prior to delivery and make sure that your chip repair is there to stay.
