Can you remove the dents from my car?

Posted by tom zoebelein on Fri, Jan 18, 2013 @ 02:15 PM

We definitely understand how frustrating it can be to suddenly discover a new dent on your car.  It can happen so easily—in any Bel Air parking lot, driving through gravel and roadwork debris, or even during the rare Harford County hailstorm.  No matter how your car gets afflicted with dents, it is not pretty and it’s not easy to look at every day.  When it happens, you’re probably thinking, “Great, now I have to either live with this or spend a ton of money to get it fixed.”  But I have some good news for you.

Why is my car's clear coat failing?

Posted by tom zoebelein on Fri, Dec 21, 2012 @ 12:31 PM

I was in a parking lot here in Bel Air and saw a car in which the paint appeared to be peeling away from itself.  Have you ever seen something like that here in Harford County?  It's called delamination, and it is where the top layer of paint (the clear coat) begins to pull away from the paint layer below it.  It has a similar appearance to a car that someone has taken sandpaper to.  Basically, it's pretty ugly to the eye and only gets worse if not treated.
