Q: How many coats of paint do you use?
Q: Do you offer CAPA parts?

A: We don't use a set amount as much as we use the amount of coats necessary to achieve full paint coverage.

A: No. First, there is no such thing as a CAPA part. There are only Aftermarket parts that happen to be CAPA certified. A CAPA certification increases the cost to what is basically an Aftermarket part. So, in keeping with our goal to offer the least expensive solution for your replacement parts needs, we do not offer CAPA parts.

Q: Do you add clear coat to the parts?
Q: Are the painted auto parts cured when they are shipped?

A: Yes, we clear coat every part we paint and ship.

A: No. The painted auto body parts are dried but not cured when shipped. The curing process is a matter of time and will lengthen how long you are without your new part. For more information about the drying and curing process check out the blog article, Dry paint vs Cured Paint Auto Body Paint.
