Automotive Body Shos and Auto Painters

The most basic function of an auto body shop is repairing damaged automobiles. This is different from fixing a car that is not operating properly mechanically. The damage to the car is not caused by a mechanical failure, but is caused by either a collision or by neglect. The most common cause is collision as they are the main source of work for an auto body shop. They will also remove dents and replace broken parts that can't be fixed. If it is possible to restore the damaged car to an acceptable condition, the auto body shop will do the work.

Often auto body shops will also be asked to work on classic cars that are being restored to their original look. The body shop will cut away rusted metal if the rust spots are not too large and then filler is used to patch the holes. If they are too large, the panels will need to be replaced. There are other aspects to the complete restoration of an automobile. The first is glass replacement. Broken windows are usually the standard in a major collision. The second factor is repainting of the auto. The areas damaged, and holes filled must be sanded and primed and a new paint job applied to the car. Finally, mechanical damage must be repaired to return the car to running condition.
