The patent-pending Q-PANEL automotive refinish training system is a cost-effective alternative to using real hoods and fenders for automotive paint refinish development and training. It is designed to give the paint applicator experience with the techniques used to paint whole vehicles, without the high expense. Other applications include technician evaluation, paint and coatings development, trade show displays and customer demonstrations.
Lower in cost than actual automobile hoods and fenders, the Q-PANEL simulated hood and fenders are shaped like real automotive components to provide a true-to-life painting experience, at a lower cost than using actual automotive parts. Hood and fender panels are constructed from sturdy 1mm (0.040") thick aluminum to allow for multiple uses. The panels can be prepped and painted multiple times. The cart is also constructed from lightweight aluminum for reduced shipping costs.
No tools are needed to set up the automotive refinish training system mounting cart or to mount the simulated hood and fenders. It takes just a minute to attach the hood and fenders onto the mounting cart; the hood and fender panels can be quickly changed out for the next application. Because the hood and fenders come pre-coated in a neutral gray color, no priming is necessary.
The Q-PANEL hood and fender panels are thin and can be nested together to save storage space. The mounting cart utilizes quick release fittings to fold in seconds for convenient storage, and can be easily tilted and rolled to working or storage locations.
