Remember the blissful moment when you first got your set of wheels? Fast forward to a few months or years, you may have lost that “loving feeling” and then that once loved vehicle fades into just a means of getting from point A to point B. Well, at Autonion Paint Masters, they take the automotive body and paint restoration to a whole new level to reignite that passion for your ride. When most paint shops just ensure that every inch of the vehicle’s body has paint, Autonion does just that and more. They take your rides and turn them into works of art. Take it from Autonion Sdn Bhd co-partner, JC who gives us an insight as to what makes Autonion, situated smack right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city, a place sought after by automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike for more than three decades and still going strong. Here’s how they can make your vehicle to look like a million bucks.
What’s the whole story and concept behind Autonion Sdn Bhd?
We wanted to be a household name for automotive paints in Malaysia where everyone will know us through our quality paint works.
What other services do you provide here besides paint?
We also specialize in insurance claims, body knocking, structural repairs and automotive welding works too. A one-stop centre for all body and paint works.
How do you ensure you give the best service to your customers?
Our founder and my father, Mr Chin Kim Yoke have 30 plus years experience in the field of body and paint (certified by TUV Rheinland) gives constant supervision of the painters by him and myself to ensure the satisfaction of the customers are truly there. We also partnered with a branding expert, Andrew (under the brand name of Autonion Paint Masters) to bring greater exposure and brand visibility to our business.
What are some of the steps to care for a painted car?
The coating will give an additional layer of protection to the paint, or if unable to, wax the car regularly and ensure to keep the car paint clean. It’s also best to avoid leaving bird poo or stubborn stains on the car paint for a prolonged time.
What should you do to avoid paint or when clear coat runs?
You need to control the consistency of the paint, thinner, hardener mixture, and ensure adequate flash over time.
How long typically does paintwork takes on a vehicle?
About 10-14 working days for a full paint job assuming if there isn’t much bodywork needed to be fixed.
Is it true that while painting a car, the interior of the car needs to be removed? If yes, why?
Not necessarily if painting just the exterior, but it is our practice and a habit to remove the lights and bumpers to ensure a good finish on the exterior.
Why should people come and paint their vehicle at Autonion Sdn Bhd?
Besides the fact that we have 30 plus years of experience in the field, we also use quality paint and clear coat products. Adding further, we apply high-end UV and Infrared technology for an even curing which can minimise orange peel and produce a high solid finish.
