Thinking of getting a car respray? Auto Medics are here with the things you need to consider before in your respray.
- Hire a Professional
Unless you are a car pro with the know-how, a good space to work, the correct equipment and safety equipment then you should leave your paint job to the professionals, not only do we know how to deliver the perfect finish fast and effectively but we are also aware of the health and safety and environmental implications involved with the process and how to deal with them.
- Shop around
It is vital to do your homework before enlisting someone to respray your motor. Avoid hiring the cheapest, nearest, easiest option. You need to locate someone with expertise and precision. Obtain a range of quotes, take a look at their premises and ask for references or check out motors they have resprayed.
For the best finish possible a respray needs to be done on a surface that is as smooth and flat as possible. This means having dents, scratches and scrapes removed before respraying your vehicle.
There’s skill involved in prepping a car before work commences. It’s important to get the prep right or it can be costly to fix. Experts will take off removable elements that don’t require painting, and mask windows, lights, trim, alloy wheels and so on with due care and diligence.
Vital to the success of your car’s respray, once the above has been considered, are the following basic steps:
- Ensuring the correct paint colour is chosen.
- Stripping the current paint.
- Etch priming and priming.
- Rubbing down before applying a top coat and lacquering.
- Rubbing down before buffing and polishing.
The time and skill that go into these steps have been acquired by professionals and built up through vigorous training and years of practice.
We take pride in ensuring every customer is satisfied with the end result, for more information about car resprays get in touch with the professional team at Auto Medics on 01494 533 534.

“I would like to thank Phil and the team of AutoMedics for the outstanding service over the last 3 years while I’ve had a wheel and tyre insurance with my Juke. I had a terrible experience with a company that made a total mess of my Diamond Cut Alloy once so I thought I’d try out these guys. Well I’ve never used anyone else since. Such a friendly team, great value and a courtesy car every time so it doesn’t stop me getting around for a few days. So I would highly recommend this company for all your Alloy wheel repairs.” ~ Abigail October 25th 2018
If you’re looking to enhance the look of your motor then diamond cut finishes are proving very popular; involving the removal of a thin layer of alloy from the wheel, we use a specialist lathe. We apply a specialist lacquer to complete the finish and prevent corrosion, leaving the wheel with an extremely shiny finish, similar to that of the back of a CD. While diamond cutting wheels can only be performed a few times, the result is highly favourable.
If you’d like to know more about diamond cut alloys, get in touch with the friendly team at Auto Medics on 01494 533 534.
Everyone wants to drive a nice car but in order to keep it in tip-top condition it’s vital that you take care of your vehicle inside and out. We are all aware of the routine checks, such as oil change, replacing brake pads, belts and hoses, that need to be carried out in order to maintain our motors but there are also some simple ways to ensure your car ages well as you tot up the miles.
- Avoid exceeding the maximum capacity load for your car. This capacity can be found in your owner’s manual. The greater the weight of your vehicle the harder your car, specifically the brakes and transmission have to work.
- When you start your car let it warm up in order to give the oil a chance to circulate before you hit the road. Also ensure you check and change your oil and oil filter at the recommended intervals.
- When your car sustains damage book it into a professional body shop to have it checked over and repaired to avoid long lasting damage.
- Clean or hire someone to clean the inside and outside of your car thoroughly to ensure its upkeep and resale value when you come to sell your motor.

With winter just around the corner, Auto Medics – alloy wheel specialists in Buckinghamshire, wanted to help you know how to get your wheels winter ready.
Alloy Wheels Buckinghamshire
Winter brings with it the need to salt roads in order to prevent accidents in icy conditions. None of us can complain about this, safety is of the utmost priority, however the damage to alloys can prove severe. At worst, galvanic corrosion can cause long lasting damage, usually by infecting stone chips or kerb damage already occurring in your wheels, and rapidly advancing to corrode the alloy when salt from the road comes into contact.
There are ways in which you can attempt to prevent such damage, these include:
- Cleaning and protecting your wheels thoroughly before winter sets in and applying an appropriate wheel sealant.
- Clean alloy wheels weekly throughout winter with a gentle wheel cleaner to remove traces of road salt and brake dust that can aid corrosion during the colder months.
- Consider alloy wheel refurbishment if your alloys are damaged, this will prevent salt getting into the cracks and crevices and prevent corrosion from setting in.
