First Step of Auto Body Repair

The first step of the auto body repair process is the inspection. To determine the nature and extent of the necessary repairs, the damaged area must be inspected thoroughly. The auto body technician or car mechanic may use a variety of tools and techniques to understand exactly what needs to be done, including the use of specialized car scanners or measuring instruments.

The next step is to accurately estimate the cost of the repair. This step requires the technician to consider the time and materials needed to restore the car to its pre-damaged condition. To prepare a reliable cost estimate, the technician may use various tools, such as computerized cost-estimating systems or price books. The technician may also consult with the insurance claim adjuster or estimate writer to develop a fair and accurate cost estimate.

Getting ready for The Auto Body Repair

After the cost of the repair is determined, it is time to prep the car for the repair process. This may involve the removal of panels or plates to gain access to the damaged area. The technician may also remove spare parts and accessories from the car to facilitate the repair. Once the parking is prepared, it is time to begin the repair process.

The repairs will be completed using various metal-working techniques. This may include spot welding, gas welding, and grinding. The technician may also use the PDR (paintless dent repair) process to remove dents from the car without affecting the paint finish. Once the metal repairs are completed, the technician will mask and sand the repair area to create a smooth surface.

The technician will also repaint the damaged area to match the rest of the car. This involves the careful preparation of the new paint. The technician will clean the area being painted with special cleaning solutions and abrasives to remove dirt, oil, and other contaminants. The technician may also apply primer or sealant to the repaired and/or painted area to provide a protective barrier or an adhesion coating. Finally, they will apply the required coats of paint, clear coat, and buffing compound as preparatory steps for the completion of the repair.

Once the bodywork and painting are complete, the technician will reassemble the panels and parts as necessary. As a final step, the technician may perform a road test to ensure the repairs have been properly performed and that the car operates in peak condition.
