Repair Centre

MIDCITY AUTO BODY strives to complete your vehicle as a work of art with state of the art equipment and craftsmen who are shameless perfectionists. This equipment includes a universal jig bench on a four post hoist. This is used to have your vehicle’s chassis straightened. Our qualified staff and up-to-date equipment will ensure you the highly specialised repairs that your vehicle deserves.

Respray Centre

Because your vehicle has a colour-code that has to be matched exactly, we use a computer programme called “Wizard” to mix the paint. Although the computer determines the formula of the paint, human expertise is still required to do it all to perfection. We prepare your vehicle with a “dry-flatting system” before it gets painted. This means that no water is used in the preparation prior to painting. In the respray it gets 3 – 4 layers of paint and is “baked” in an “oven” for approximately 20 minutes at the maximum temperature of 80⁰C. As soon as the booth reaches its temperature it switches off, the paint is dry and your vehicle painted, all this within 20 minutes! Affected areas are primed to perfection using quality products. All paint work is polished and buffed to brilliant lustre.


We can ensure you that the minute you enter our reception you will receive a warm welcoming by our staff. The first impression you will experience is of style and excellence. With compliments “MIDCITY AUTO BODY”. Here at 470 Madiba Street, Arcadia, we have something to drink for every season of the year, from a steaming cup of coffee to ice-cold refreshments. While we are busy preparing a quote for you, you are free to relax in our cosy, modern reception area where we have up-to-date reading and promotional material for you to browse.
