This repair is much larger than a smart repair would usually do. However, luckily enough the bumper brackets where not broken, just severely bent. These actually bent back into place fairly easy. Due to this the wing could then be panel beat back into the proper shape. Once this was done it was just a matter of repairing the wing ready for spraying.
This mini had a few nasty bashes from behind and as a result a split and hole appeared in the back bumper. A garage wanted to replace the whole bumper obviously as a cost. Using plastic welding techniques specific to SMART repairs the bumper was easily repaired and will be as strong as if it was new. All work guaranteed, done at home/work place and at a fraction of the price.
This wing had a nasty scratch and dent, luckily not touching the door. The back corner of the bumper also needed attention. The problem when wings are dented is the sharp edge you get going around the wheel arch is often flattened and as a result not only does the dent need fixing, but that edge needs building up too. Using a decent body filler and sanding techniques, mostly by hand the edge can be made sharp again.
This van got a nasty knock from behind, the black plastic bumper was squished and the back arch was also dented. The door hinge also needed some attention. With some wiggling about to get things back into alignment it was then just a matter of body repair. The black bumper was repaired first, then the white metal on the wing and door was tackled. Once it was completed nobody would ever know, one happy van driver again.
Another victim of a driveway wall, the damage on this vehicle unfortunately not only damaged the bumper but put a nasty dent in the corner of the back wing. Using our SMART repair system the damage was repaired, paint and lacquer was blended out onto the wing panel and polished up. The blue metallic paint was mixed up in the back of the van and tweaked for a perfect match.
Spent a day going over this car and giving it a make over. It had damage on the front wing, at the bottom of both doors and other various scuffs around all four corners of the bumper.
As it was the value of the car would be severely impacted, not to mention that look was not good. After a days work the car is looking 100% better! Both doors and the back wing where repaired as well as bumper corners, wing mirror casing scuffs and various other marks, some of which could be polished out.
As we use special plastic paints that can flex and will not peel we can also repair the inside of a car such as the upholstery. This works in a similar fashion to a repair made to a plastic trim found on doors and bumpers. Using this technique a repair was made to this handbrake upholstery module which had something nasty split over it.
The colour can also be tweaked to take into account ware & tear as well as colour fade.
As you can see from the after photo, the inside now looks much better and inviting so the driver can continue to enjoy their ride.
Im not so sure if this large bumper dent could have actually been any bigger, but using some special techniques 90% of the dent was popped back out leaving just some minor tweaks and paint work to complete. People often presume damage at this scale can not be repaired without a new bumper being fitted which would have been very costly. As this was a repair and completed on-site the customer only paid a fraction of the cost and did have to go out their way to have repaired.
This bumper suffered from something impacting it which resulted in the support bars behind the bumper pushing out causing a plastic bumper split. Many repair shops cant repair plastics, especially the black non painted bumpers. Luckily a SMART repair involves welding the plastic split together which not only makes it strong but prevents the crack from coming back. Special fillers and plastic paints are used to finish the repair.
Worked on a classic 1936 Ford Austin to repair some rusty areas specifically around the trims. As we use cellulose based paints we could easily match the colour and also spray a shiny coat on without the need for lacquer. This helps keep the car as original as possible.
As you can see the trims have started to rust and bubble causing paint to flake away.
After some sanding, and a little bit of filler the area was primed and rubbed down a few time to get a nice smooth finish.
Once the main coat of paint was applied and blended out the look was as good as new.
Work was also done on the front wings, again rust was appearing on the trims.
The rust scabs and bad areas were grind out to reduce the chances of rust coming back and to stabilise the area for a bit of filler and primer.
A final black coat of mainly thinners was applied to give a nice shine and the area blended out.
After a clean up, some black polish and various touch-ins this classic Austin was ready to go to events and be presented for all to enjoy.
