Mobile Car Body Repair

January 21, 2016

This damage on the front wing of an 8-year-old Ford Focus was the result of another car reversing into it in a shopping centre car park. As you can see from the photos below the damage is quite severe, most of the front wing has been badly dented and warped as a result of the collision. This sort of car body repair damage we would not normally take on, it’s at the limits of what we can repair. But the customer had already been quoted over £600 by a few different body shops and couldn’t warrant paying that sort of price, especially when the car is as old as it is, so he contacts us.

This job was probably our trickiest to date, and considering we have been in the industry for over 12 years that’s saying something.

To fix the massive dent is not just a case of slapping as much filler in the dent as possible, but using as little filler as you can. This was achieved by reshaping the wing with plenty of brute force with a variety of different tools. Once the basic shape was achieved then it was time for the filler. Only a skimming of filler was required for we managed to remove most of the dent and panel distortion first. Then paint and lacquer.

As you can see from the completed repair photo, the damage has all gone and only took us just under 4 hours to carry out the car body repair.

This customer lived in Buckhurst Hill in Essex. If you live within this area or any others that we service like Hertfordshire, Essex or North London and you need a similar job carried out on your car, give us a call on 08000778832 or email us a photo to sales@carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk
