Large Damage Repairs
Although smart repairs mainly deals with small to medium collision damage on cars we do sometimes get asked to repair areas on cars where the damage is quite severe. For example the photo below shows a large dent on the front wing of a Mazda mx5, the damage itself is not the difficult bit but the area that it’s in where it crosses the wheel arch contour line. The front wing is a sealed unit so pushing out from the back is an impossibility leaving only the fill option. We would usually decline such a repair for we couldn’t guarantee a 100% finish due to the amount of filling and reshaping required, but as we knew the customer and he had experience with us before we agreed to take it on.
As you can see the dent goes over the wheel arch and breaks the contour line of the wing. From our initial assessment we thought a 90% repair would be achieve able. The job took us a little over 3 hours and once completed the customer couldn’t believe how well it had come out. It was near on perfect as you can see from the photo below.
Repairing large areas for a smart repair service is not an impossibility, it just depends on the severity of damage to what degree of successes can be achieved. Most repairs that are similar to the dent shown above can be brought to a near perfect finish depending on where they are located on the car. Just remember the larger the damage the reduced amount of success we will get from the finished job.
