Precise Chip & Bumper is owned by Stephen G. Tousley (CEO).
The Tousley family, who are long time car enthusiasts, has been involved in the automotive industry in various capacities for many years. For example, in 1962, Roger Tousley and Robert Tousley, Steve’s father and grandfather, were the founders of Apache Car Wash that was located in Northeast Minneapolis. They are credited with creating the first car wash building with three exit bays, a design that revolutionized the car wash industry.
Steve’s first job at age 14 was folding towels at the car wash and he eventually went on to be Manager. He moved on to a very successful career in the insurance business but he has remained a car enthusiast and the auto appearance industry has always intrigued him. In 2009 he discovered a company (Premier Paint 2000) that offered a unique paint chip treatment and Precise Color Auto Renew was born.
Precise Color/Precise Chip & Bumper were created out of a need for quality light duty auto body repair. Our mobile capability was also a must and we have continued to refine this area. The mobile work stations we utilize are specifically designed to create the perfect environment to deliver a superior repair – literally anywhere.
Precise Chip & Bumper provides onsite automobile paint reconditioning services to auto dealers and retail customers in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. We utilize a very unique, high quality process to repair rock chips and scratches. We are the only company using this system in Minnesota. Unlike most systems that use a color chart to “eye up” an acceptable paint match, Precise uses the color code from each vehicle, and a precise technical method, to match color exactly with PPG paint. Further, we enhance the paint with several proprietary chemicals to achieve a virtually invisible repair – usually in less than an hour.
We also provide light duty bumper repair. And by light duty, we mean pretty much anything short of a bumper replacement. Scuffs, cracks, flaked paint and even holes receive body shop quality treatment at your home, office, or one of our dealership partners – usually in less than two hours.
