FinishLine – The Importance of Choosing the right Putty for Refinishing

Oct 6, 2021 | News

If you don’t currently consider the type and quality of putty that you use when refinishing a car body, then think again! It can end up costing you a lot if you don’t get it right, and the painter will have to deal with the consequences, which could even entail having to go back several steps to the initial sanding and then re-doing the steps in between. Needless to say, this can add unnecessary costs to the project.

Your putty actually builds the foundation for the refinish job and it must be solid and perfectly moulded into the shape needed. Expert advice about putty consistencies and colour can confusingly vary widely, with each expert having their own preference. As with all of our FinishLine products, throughout their development journey, our goal was to offer the best products for your range of applications, rather than every variety you might be led to think you need. So, we are delighted to give you some details about our 3 putty options, which are perfect for a wide range of daily jobs.
