Auto Hobby

State-of-the-art automotive equipment is available on a self-help or technician-assisted basis. Current hours listed at the bottom of this page. In addition to the drive-in bays with hydraulic lifts, patrons can paint their cars and rebuild their engines onsite as well. The benefit of our self-help capabilities is that it allows the opportunity for customers to work on their own vehicles with the equipment they can't get at home.

Auto Hobby is also home to the Resale Lot, carwash, and vacuum center. We offer routine car maintenance, on-base tow service, and jumpstart/lockout solutions. 

Resale Lot

The all-new Resale Lot is available for listings. Check it out, and list your vehicle with us, today!

Paint Booth

  • Price:

    $60 per day

  • Required Materials:

    Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

We are excited to announce that the car paint booth at Auto Hobby is now open for daily rental.
In order to ensure a smooth and efficient experience for all users, we kindly request that customers provide their own spray gun for their painting needs. This allows you to use equipment that you are comfortable with and ensures that you have the necessary tools to complete your projects to your satisfaction.
Additionally, we require customers to bring Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all supplies used during their time in the paint booth. SDSs contain important information about the properties and potential hazards of the materials being used. By providing the SDSs, we can maintain a safe environment and ensure compliance with relevant safety regulations.
Please note that the rental fee for the paint booth is set at $60.00 per day.
If you have any questions or require further information regarding the reopening of the paint booth, spray gun and SDS requirements, or pricing details, please feel free to reach out to Auto Hobby.
