Detailers may also put wax and other protectants on the vehicle’s body, wheels and tires in order to form a protective layer against dirt, grime and gunk.

For detailing Blaine, North Star Auto Body’s techs can give your car or truck’s interior carpets a good and thorough cleaning. In addition, the seats and dashboard and other parts such as the door kick plate can be cleaned so they look (and smell) fresh and clean. Meanwhile, if there’s something in your interior that needs repair or replacing, detailing can include that. Want a customized interior, to make it look different than your friend’s similar car or truck? Let the techs know what changes you want made and it shall be done.

Do you have a classic car that needs a little work or a lot of work? Have North Star Auto Body restore it for you. You could bring in a piece of junk car and eventually drive it off the lot looking like a completely different, better car.

With detailing, Blaine’s North Star Auto Body shop gives vehicles a three-step buff and polish to make the paint look refreshed– good as new. And interiors of vehicles get cleaned from top to bottom.

Restoring older cars involves several steps. Ideally, we want to make your classic car look as historically accurate as possible, which means finding replacement parts from the old days that are in excellent condition.

Regarding a car’s interior, oftentimes the upholstery is torn or faded and the switches and gauges are worn, missing, or need adjustment. Sometimes the radio needs fixing, and in some cases customers want a more modern radio installed so they can play CDs rather than cassette tapes, for example.

When working on a car’s interior, typically we vacuum it, remove the floor and door panels, clean and polish everything that needs cleaning, and replace parts piece-by-piece on an as-needed basis.

Northstar is well known for its car restoration Blaine, especially for our keen exterior restoration work. We can strip the paint to bare metal, replace and/or work with the panels, priming them, and then repaint the exterior so the car looks good as new. If there’s rust on the car’s body, we’ll either sandblast it off, or, if needed, replace the really rusted panels with new sheet metal. Meanwhile, we pay attention to things like door handles, mirrors, taillights and more, ensuring that everything works and sparkles like new.

Underneath the hood, we can tackle restoring the engine. Sometimes we have to completely rebuild or replace it, while other times it just requires some minor adjustments to be in good working condition. Taking a look at the various parts, like the fuel pumps, cylinder heads and pistons, Northstar’s experienced techs know what to look for when it comes to parts needing repairs versus replacements.

Goodbye Rust, Auto Body Rust Repair Blaine

auto_body_rust_repair_blaineGot rust? The place for auto body rust repair Blaine, MN, is North Star Auto Body & Glass at 2136 108th Lane NE.

If you were alive in the 1970s and 1980s, you’ll remember seeing a lot of cars and trucks on the road covered with rust. In fact, the term “rust bucket” was often used to describe the rustiest of vehicles.

Rust is an iron oxide, usually reddish brown in color, which has plagued car and truck owners for decades. Rusting happens when iron and its alloys, such as steel, corrode over time thanks to water and air moisture. With all the rain, wind, sleet, snow and ice Minnesota winters get, it’s no wonder that many vehicles have experienced flaky, unsightly rust problems over the years.

While more modern vehicles, in particular, don’t seem to rust like older models—due to different materials used in the manufacturing process—there are still plenty of vehicles on the road suffering from spots of rust, as well as body panels, particularly near the tires, experiencing rust.

Rust is like acne—no one wants it, but it exists, and sooner or later you or someone you know gets it. And just like acne, people will do whatever they can to get rid of the rust on their otherwise attractive car or truck.

For auto body rust repair Blaine, North Star Auto Body & Glass is the place to take your vehicle for a “makeover.” The professional techs at North Star have the right equipment to get rid of rust and do quality restoration work on your car or truck so it looks as good as new. North Star’s state-of-the-art painting services go on smooth and clean. You bring in a rusty vehicle, and you can leave with the rust gone—plain and simple as that.
