Paintwork - Paint perfection for your Aston Martin

The specialist nature of bodywork repair and paint blending required for Aston Martin cars means that our ex-OEM technicians have developed expertise specific to the marque. This focus, combined with our obsession for detail and precision, means that Bamford Rose sets the benchmark for Aston Martin bodywork and paintwork care.

Your Aston Martin requires very specific specialist knowledge of repair and painting techniques. One example is the front, sill and rear quarter stone chip ‘rashes’ to which the cars are susceptible. Another is the corrosion blisters that appear on panel edges. Our expertise in localised paint blending can make a large job, costing thousands at a franchised dealer, a smaller job for us costing hundreds.

On the other hand, if your car needs a full respray, we have the facilities and the expertise to do the job professionally to the highest standards.

You can rely on Bamford Rose to work smarter, delivering quality solutions cost effectively for you and your car.

You can be confident that you are contracting a business which arguably has the best name and reputation within the independent Aston Martin World for high-quality repairs and attention to detail. From the moment you step into Bamford Rose you can be sure of friendly and professional service including:

The issue of paint blistering has plagued all of the VH era cars from the earliest DB9 right through to the end of the line Vantages.

The paint blistering typically manifests itself on edges. The roof edges, around the door handles, at the top of doors, rear quarter near the window, the V8 boot lid and the bonnet which is especially suspectable with blistering typically starting on the underside.

Many explanations have been offered by the factory for the problem but the issue is most likely caused by contamination during the painting process. You would have thought that the Aston 10 year corrosion warranty would cover this problem but because the paint is excluded from the warranty (the bodywork isn’t corroding) repairs will usually not be covered.

The blistering is not a big problem to address (unless many panels of the car have been compromised to such an extent to require a respray) but it is important to address early before it spreads. This prevents a big job later down the line. Once resprayed and repaired the good news is that the problem doesn’t recur.

Detect and deal with paint blistering on my Aston Martin?

A common problem with all of the early VH era Aston Martins is mirror stem corrosion.

The original paintwork applied to the stems was far from adequate and is easily scratched enabling water ingress, bubbling and unsightly corrosion. You may be tempted to repair and paint the impacted areas piecemeal but the real solution is to tackle the problem properly. Removing the door cards and window to get access to the mirror stalk to remove it for treatment. The stalk will then be cleaned (by particle blasting) and then properly powder coated to protect it for years to come.

How do I fix mirror stalk corrosion on my Aston Martin

Protective film application from ‘bras’ and sills to whole panels. The protective film dramatically reduces the risk of stone chips, scratches and paint damage to your car.

Digitally-designed using a bespoke template, protective film for your Aston Martin can be fitted by Bamford Rose’s specially-trained installer. Achieving the protection you need for your vehicle’s bumpers, headlights, wings, wing mirrors and bonnet.
