Love from Land Rover

An epic Land Rover Defender love story that took place in New Zealand on Valentines Day shared among four very close friends! Kudos to Land Rover for giving back!

A new frontier in automotive refinishing is upon us, and never has this been more evident then this past week at the Chicago Auto Show. Apparently, Nissan is attempting to feel out the market in regard to new refinishing technology, two completely separate processes one of which repels grime, dirt, bird droppings, spills, etc…basically you name it. Whatever “it” may be isn’t going to stick to your car like it has in the past. Seems as if this coating might become a dealer option somewhere down the line. I find it quite intriguing. Watch what happens when they demonstrate with Hershey’s syrup. The zero emissions Leaf was already dubbed one of the world’s cleanest cars, and this video solidifies that title twice over “literally.”
Best described as, “Little umbrellas of air between the paint surface and the environment”
The product is called Ultra-Ever Dry by Ultratech International
After reading up on it, I have learned that this product is not designed for glass and WILL complicate visibility.

Of course, there is a prank video…Did you even have to ask?

Second in the brands quest to stand out among its competitors at the Auto Show was a Nissan Leaf sporting Starpath paint from Pro-Tech Surfacing, which isn’t going to be offered with the Leaf but none the less would still make it a crowd favorite, and it would debut here. This paint glows in the dark and is most likely going to begin a new trend. I would expect this refinishing process to become quite popular among the aftermarket enthusiasts worldwide in the near future.

Around The Shop January 2015

Here we are, it’s the first week of January 2015 (Happy New Year). A new year so once again, here’s to new beginnings. With so many things going on around the shop at all times it seems as if we never really get a chance to get caught up. That being said I have created my own personal new years resolution and that’s to begin to spend more time spreading the news, and sharing more information through the County Line Auto Body blog. Basically, slowing down a little bit to make sure our loyal clientele has the opportunity to see what is happening in and around the shop every now and then. I’m planning on dropping a monthly “Around The Shop” post because it isn’t often our client gets the opportunity to see the back end of the big show. More or less it’s where the magic happens, not that the front office isn’t important, but that’s only the first step of the process, and usually the only step that most people get to witness…well, along with picking up the final product which again puts you right back in the front office. I felt this was the best way to bring the shop to life, show you the inner workings and some of the toys we get to play with,  display some of the hard hit collision repairs that are being performed by our certified and experienced craftsman, as well as the minor repair work, show-off some of the incredible paintwork that our painters turn out on a daily basis, give a few of the employees some exposure that they so deserve but in most cases are overlooked in the grand scheme of day to day operations. Every single step during the collision repair process is just as important as the last or the next, and our staff are the ones who are responsible for each and every result. We take a lot of pride in our work, and also the condition of our facility, we are constantly evolving in order to keep up with new manufacturer certifications, and repair procedures! In 2015 there will be many positive changes in the way that we do business, and it will be shared via this blog. We hope that you find it interesting and informative. It has been my pleasure to do business with the thousands of people who have walked through the door of my office, and I hope to continue to do so for many years to come. It is an honor to show the public why we have adopted the hashtags #CLAB & #NotYourAverageBodyShop. I believe that as this blog evolves you will have a much better understanding as to what sets us aside from the ordinary & mundane.
