Vehicle Colour Coding

Many modern vehicles often have exposed plastic panels especially on the bumpers, side skirts and pillars which can look unsightly.  Our colour coding service gives you the opportunity to have these areas painted to match the rest of your car, enhancing the overall look, thus giving a more uniform appearance and often creating the illusion of a lower stance.

Car Body Repairs

Our experience from years in the automotive industry of sub-standard paint jobs on cars prompted our almost fanatical insistence that all body shop repairs carried out by us, are performed according to the very highest manufacturer’s standard and come with a warranty.

The innovative painting techniques our expert professionals utilise, ensure an outstanding colour match and consistency to the existing paintwork.  Consistency of paint not only in colour match and on panel edges is of utmost importance as is the accuracy of panel gaps.  Once paintwork has been completed we always recommend a suitable detailing treatment on the existing panels, in order to retain uniformity throughout the body work and with an aim to produce a result superior to factory finish.

Vehicle Wraps (Colour Change) / Paint Protection Film

Vehicle Wrapping is a fantastic way of bestowing your car with a whole new look without relinquishing its original one.  In contrast to spray painting, vinyl wrap can be quickly and easily removed to revert back to the original paint finish when required.  A wide variety of colour wraps are available from standard colours to speciality finishes including chrome and gold.  Part wrapping individual panels on your car such as the roof or bonnet is an option some of our clientele have chosen.  We are also up to date on all the current trends and can advise accordingly.  We can also incorporate printable designs into the wrap for advertising etc.

The superior quality of the wraps and the expert application ensures that the appearance and surface structure of the car is equivalent to a regular paint finish and in addition provides protection against general wear and tear preserving any future resale value on the car.

The optimum method of shielding your car against the elements particularly following paintwork enhancement, detailing treatments and to protect a brand new car, is to apply a Paint Protection Film (PPF).  PPF is an innovative self healing film which has an ability to protect a vehicle’s paint work from the majority of stone chips, swirl marks, general light abrasions and it also gives a degree of protection against some keying scratches.

The installation of the PPF is as important as the product itself and in keeping with all of the services we offer, we only employ highly qualified professional craftsmen to execute its application.  Our PPF is guaranteed for up to five years against cracking, discolouration or lifting, provided that the instructions regarding correct maintenance have been adhered to.

Paintwork Detailing and Interior Refinements

Road contaminates and poor or incorrect washing techniques result in damage and imperfections in your car’s paintwork.  If we feel, after a thorough appraisal of your car, that a full detail would be highly beneficial in the marketing process, we will introduce you to the various levels of detailing services we offer.

Levels of detailing range from the simple protection detail, regularly used by many of our clientele for general maintenance, through to a complete enhancement or correction detail which will give a mirror-like finish to the car’s paintwork, revealing the clear coat (lacquer) and ultimately superseding the car’s factory finish.

The interior of a car is also integral to its overall look and feel.  Over time the leather can start to look faded, dirty or worn, caused by a variety of factors even in cars with very low mileage.  At PHILIP IRELAND PERFORMANCE CARS using professional techniques we recondition, re-connolise or re-trim the leather in any colour to aesthetically restore the look and feel of the damaged area.
