Closed-door vs Entire Respray: What is right for me?
When getting a quote for a respray, many of our customers ask about whether an open-door or closed-door respray is right for them. First of all, let’s cover the difference. A closed-door respray is your basic exterior respray; the entire exterior of the vehicle is painted, but the undersides of panels (e.g. under a bonnet, engine bay etc.) are left untouched. An open-door respray, on the other hand, is where we spray both sides of your panels, so if you open your bonnet, the underside of it and the engine bay will be the same colour and tone of the exterior colour.
