Car body defects

  • Mechanical damage (fractions, holes, deflection, marring and dents);
  • Corrosion;
  • Welded junction cracks;
  • Disruption of bolts or nuts;
  • Deformation of body components;
  • Side panels warp or side rails deflect during override;
  • Stiffeners and connectors of body panels wear out;
  • Antirust coat and paint damage;
  • Inability to close or lock doors, hood or trunk;
  • Malformed door opening.

Signs of body defects

  • Visible rust or mechanical defects;
  • Paint coating peeling and blistering;
  • Blocking of moving parts;
  • Flagging doors;
  • Water gets inside in the rain;
  • Change of original coating colour, light or dark spots.

Causes of body defects

  • Mechanical damage due to an accident or negligence of the driver;
  • Inadequate care of the body surface;
  • Extended exposure to sunlight, dirt and humidity;
  • Impact of aggressive chemicals: acids, alkalis, salts;
  • The car is washed by too hot water (above 80 Со);
  • Damage or wear of moving body parts;
  • lack of greasing of moving parts or using lubricants of low quality.

Diagnostics

Assessment of the body condition can be done independently. It is enough to examine all surfaces and components of the body. Paint coating must be smooth and without visible damage. Metal of the body must be free from rust, especially its unpainted parts. The level of gap and the condition of the door seal can be measured using chalk. It is enough to apply it to one seal and close the door several times. Excessive gaps will not whiten. Side windows should rise smoothly and fit tightly against the seal, preventing the ingress of water from outside.

Body repair

Most minor damages to the body can be corrected on your own. Small scratches or damages of the paint are removed by polishing. When there is a gap between the body and the door, seal must be replaced. Visible dents and large damages of the coating can be eliminated on the service station by reshaping and subsequent repainting the damaged area or the entire body. Replacing the body is an irrelevant measure because its value can be up to half the cost of the car itself. In addition, the transfer of all components of the system is too problematic.
