Auto Body Repairs

Golf Automotive is your specialist for auto body repairs in Waterloo, Kitchener and the surrounding area. Auto body repairs are usually a sub section of the collision repairs process. However, in certain instances such as scratches or cracks the steps within the auto body repair procedure is all that is required. Auto body repairs can be separated into 2 categories, dependent on whether the part to be fixed is metal or plastic.

Auto Body Repairs | Metal

Before any of the body work begins, the metal panel must initially be returned to a shape that is very similar to its original condition through a procedure that is covered in detail within our collision repair page. Learn More about Auto Collison Repairs

Once any metal panel is returned to its general shape it must go through a few more steps in order for the finer details of the metal to be perfected.

  • The repaired area of the metal must be grinded in order to prepare it for body filler.
  • Next the body filler is applied to the areas that where previously grinded. The body filler is used to perfect the fine details, and shape the metal panel exactly to the original condition.
  • The entire surface is sanded down in order to ensure it is uniform.
  • After the surface is perfectly level, it is finished with spot putty to return it to its original smoothness

Auto Body Repairs | Plastic

There are generally two types of plastic repairs, depending whether the plastic is cracked, chipped or misshaped. Most cracked and chipped plastics can be repaired, only severe cases require replacement. For a better understanding of the two types of repairs we will explain them step by step.

Auto Body Repairs | Plastic Chips and Scratches

  • The area where the plastic has been chipped or scratched must be sanded down until the surface is even and smooth.
  • The smoothness of the plastic is increased even further through the addition of spot putty.
  • The spot putty is sanded down to return the entire area to the original perfect condition.
  • The plastic is then painted and finished to the original colour. Learn More about Auto Painting

Auto Body Repairs | Plastic Cracks

  • The crack is reinforced using metal plates and rivets in order to make sure that the integrity of the bumper is sound.
  • Using special tools designed for plastic repair, it is welded to return it to its general shape.
  • The area is covered with plastic filler and sanded down to make it smooth.
  • The smoothness of the plastic is increased even further through the addition of spot putty.
  • The spot putty is sanded down to return the entire area to the original perfect condition.
  • The plastic is then painted and finished to the original colour. Learn More about Auto Painting
