TUASON AUTO PAINT TECHNOLOGY, INC or TAPTI was established in June, 1997. It is the offspring of a previous company called ARTHUR TUASON AUTO DEVELOPMENTS, INC. the same company from whose humble beginnings as an English Ford hi performance tuner evolved as a franchised Ford Rallye Sport dealer. It later on (in 1991) revolutionized the car refinishing industry when it introduced its patented hi-technology auto paint refinishing system and products (the 2K Auto Paint system), the result of which was a durable, high gloss car refinish and an invisible repair for damaged car panels.
Because of its seemingly wet finish, the company eventually came to be known as THE WET LOOK.
This includes full respray, washovers and change of color. Customers wanting to change the color of their cars have a wide selection of Solid, Metallic, Pearlescent and Special Effect colors to choose from. THE WET LOOK has more than a hundred thousand OEM (Original Equipment Manufactured) documented colors from all major car manufacturers including Alfa Romeo, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Lexus, Ferrari, Mitsubishi, Jaguar, Volkswagen, Audi, etc. The customer simply has to look at our library of color swatches; once the color selection is finalized, THE WET LOOK will then mix that color in its own mixing room using the exact formula for that color from its microfiche containing a database of more than 100,000 colors.
The work duration, from disassembly, denting, substrate preparation, sanding, masking, spraying, color sanding, buffing, assembly and polishing is determined by the extent of denting and condition of the existing paint. Normally, cars with slight dents and minor scratches take 8 to 10 days for a washover and 10 to 12 days for a change color.
Collision and Panel Repairs
Repaired panels are sprayed with color matched basecoat and 2K clear coating following correct repair procedures. The newly sprayed paint will then blend in with the original finish for an invisible repair. Work duration is determined by the extent of damage; normally, a car with an average of 4 damaged panels takes about 4 to 5 days to repair and paint.
Exterior detailing, minor interior detailing, minor mechanical and electrical works and automobile airconditioning is also done at THE WET LOOK.
Respray - Twenty four (24) months limited warranty
