Auto Painting and Refinishing
Hood’s use of high quality DuPont Refinish products is only the beginning. Meticulous attention is paid to the condition of body panels before they are sprayed. No vehicle enters our climate controlled downdraft spray booth prior to:
- Passing a thorough quality inspection.
- Achieving the best possible color match.
We pride ourselves on outstanding color match. No colors are too difficult to match; some only require more time and patience. All colors must be test sprayed, checked and tinted for precise match prior to the vehicle entering the spray booth. Color matching is an art and our paint technicians are true artists. In the absence of a factory a paint code for a vehicle, we utilize DuPont’s Acquire color match camera. This high tech digital camera links to our DuPont computer to create a color formula where one does not exist.
Once the vehicle has been sprayed, the finish is treated to a high temperature bake cycle to ensure proper paint curing.
As stated in our warranty, our finishes are guaranteed for the life of the vehicle.
Hood’s Etc. uses the latest equipment, including a state of the art laser measuring system. TheChief Velocity frame and unibody laser measuring unit can simultaneously measure the vehicle from multiple points, enabling the technician to make repairs down to the millimeter.
Our experienced technicians take pride in their work, which is continually reflected in the quality of our repairs and our reputation.
About Hood’s Etc…
Begun in 1989, by owner Todd Hood, Hood's Etc. has maintained its outstanding reputation for quality work over the years by focusing on one customer at a time. Todd received a Bachelor of Science in business from the University of Arizona in 1988, deciding to turn his hobby and love of cars into a career.
Early on Todd did mostly restoration paintwork on a wide variety of classics. Having created show winning finishes for customers and on his own cars, Todd has always had a passion for top quality body and paintwork, and currently completes one to two of these projects a year. This same passion is reflected in the repairing of collision damaged vehicles.
Currently with five technicians in addition to himself, Todd demands meticulous work throughout the repair process. Using computerized estimating, Chief Laser Measuring, and Dupont’s Cromax Pro waterborne computerized paint matching system, Hood’s has the ability to consistently repair any vehicle to the most demanding standards.
