Body Shop Basics


 
Automotive
When it comes to auto body repair shops, keep in mind that certain body shop basics apply to repairing dent, and parts, as well as re-painting. A custom auto body shop and automotive body shop typically employs specialists in auto body issues. This takes training. You can't walk in off the street and do this. Auto body work requires specialized tools and knowledge to do successfully. It's intensive work, banging out dents, applying Bondo to fill in spaces, sanding, priming and painting the vehicle. Repair time-frames vary greatly by job and parts availability. Auto body repair shops can fix dents and repaint in a few days or a week. Bigger jobs like smashed-in front ends and grill damage, bumper replacements and full reconstructions may take a week, or longer, at an automotive body shop.

Body Shop Basics at the custom auto body shop encompasses the following steps in many cases when it comes to re-painting: Strip it, blast it, sand it, hammer it, fill it, block it, shoot it with paint, buff it and finish it. Blasting quickly removes old paint and rust. Make sure to protect glass and moldings. Sanding tools also can be used for stripping paint. Some technicians, and auto enthusiasts, work with chemical stripping processes.

Body work involves hammering. Fixing the metal with well-placed hammer hits is a science and an art. It's amazing to see experienced auto body technicians hammer out dents and work with sheet metal. A dolly is used on the other side of the metal being hit for stability and balance. Polyester-based paste is applied as body filler. Filler is pliable for only a few minutes only, so must be applied judiciously. Metal has to be sealed, then blocked with primer surfacer to even out minor flaws. Painting is the next step with a spray gun going the job. Completing the auto body painting work, buffing with pads and compounds applies an overall glaze and finish.
