Repair of considerable damages of a body

Repair of serious damages of a body has to be made in the conditions of specialized auto repair shop at the disposal of which there is a necessary equipment.

Whether in case of extensive damages of a body first of all it is necessary to be convinced there were no shifts of elements of the panels capable to affect controllability of the car or to be the reason of the increased wear any of its components.

In view of the fact that the majority of elements of a body (a cowl, wings, etc.) is represented by separate components which replacement can be made in an individual order, their replacement in case of serious damage it is not represented expedient. More often much more reasonably and more economic it appears to find a suitable replaceable element which can be found not only in shops of auto parts, but also on automobile dumps that, naturally, allows to cut down expenses significantly.
