Repair Procedures

Repair procedures 1

Kerbed and scuffed alloy wheels.

Our alloy wheels repair procedure allows for alloy wheels to be efficiently made to look as good as new by eradicating scuffs and kerb dents. The wheels are removed from the vehicle and deflated; the beads are broken so that the tyre comes away from the alloy trim.

The damaged areas are then repaired using particular machinery with primer paint and lacquer then applied to perfectly match the original finish.

Vandal and key-scratch repair.
Vandal and key scratches are very common throughout this line of work. This procedure allows for all types of accidental or vandal scratches to be rectified to perfection. The scratches are first removed by sanding down the damaged area; this can be wet or machine sanding.
The damaged area is then prepared and primer is applied to it.

The area is then base coated using the latest water based colour matching system. It is then lacquered and blended using S.M.A.R.T. blending techniques. Once the paint is cured a machine is used to buff and polish the repaired area to create a factory standard finish.

Dent repair.
P.D.A. (Paintless Dent Removal) is a technique using specialist hand tools to access areas behind panels to massage and lift out dents. But not all dents are suitable for the P.D.A. technique, some dents require body filter.
Body filter is a technique where the dented area is filled in and sanded to the same contour as the panel. The repaired area is then primer base coated, lacquered and blended. Once the paint is cured a machine is used to buff and polish it to create an identical match of the original finish.

Plastic repair.
Cracked or scuffed bumpers, plastic moulding and mirror casings are all repaired using cold plastic welding.
The repaired area is sanded and prepared; plastic primer is then applied and retextured. The area is then prepared and repainted to match its original form.

Stone chip repair.
Stone chip damages usually occur accidentally and are caused by normal driving. The stone chip repair procedure involves the chipped areas being cleaned with specialist degreasing chemicals and a colour is mixed according to the colour and paint code of the vehicle.

The colour is applied and touched in to the chip as a base coat colour. Lacquer is then touched in over the base coat to build up the paint chip; once the paint is cured wet sanding is used to flatten any excess paint. A machine is then used to buff and polish the repaired areas to create an exceptional stone chip repair.

Leather and plastic trim repairs.
Scuffed, torn or worn leather and plastic trims can be rectified and repaired efficiently by the means of the following procedures:
The damaged area is texture replicated and re-coloured using special formulated leather and a plastic water based colour system used to restore and repair trims to their original form.
Holes caused by phone accessory fittings to dashboards and centre consoles can also be rectified by means of the same method.

Fabric trim and upholstery repairs.
Cigarette burns and tares to interior fabric trims can be rectified and repaired by using our S.M.A.R.T. fabric trim repair kit.
Burnt or torn fabrics are filled and replaced with new matching fibre to restore fabrics perfectly to its original form.
