A huge number of cars get smashed on roads, causing mild to severe damage to the automobiles, as a result, they need special attention by the smash repairers or panel beaters. Well, let’s be honest, people do save a handful of money by taking the denting painting repair process in their own hands. But in reality, this isn’t the job for amateurs if you want the professional, sleek finish providing a lustrous sheen to your car. It is also possible that you may damage it even more. 

On the other hand, repairing is a labour-intensive job. And the most important thing to remember is that the resale value of your automobile highly depends on it looking as good and new as possible, and this, in turn, depends on how seriously do you take your car in reality. You should always aim for the perfect finish. 

It takes time to learn the skills of panel beating. And they have a number of skill sets that they use in order to remove the dents and reshape those dented or smashed panels to get in levels with the original contours of the car. This should be done well before the smoothening and re-surfacing followed by spray painting the damaged areas by spray gun DeVilbiss Adelaide on the affected areas that need finishing up. 

The steps that are involved in the panel beating process are:-

1. Re-alignment:- After the accident or any such occurrence that involves re-alignment of the car before the process of the body works start flaring up. Usually, these panel beating workshops use hydraulic lifts in the process in order to make sure or pull the chassis up along with the other body parts are properly aligned. There are various panel beating tools in Adelaide, available online on autorepairsdirect.com.au. 

2. Shrinking or stretching:- this involves stretching the metal panel out of shape, that is dented. The panel beater has to shrink and stretch the metal back into its original form, this can be achieved by the heating it followed by hammering and then cooling it with the wet cloth.

3. Planishing:- the dent or nicks are hammered back into its shape by the use of planishing tools. This varies as per the shape of the hammer. 

4. Welding and finishing:- with this step, the panel beater uses the specific and special hammers that presses the damaged metal out and restore in its original shape. The panel beaters will use the welding tools to join the pieces of metal that are reshaped altogether this helps highly to reinforce the structure and robustness of the vehicle. 

5. The next step is to fill and finish the panel surface by the body fillers and then sanded back. The is highly used for restoring the contours. Once fixed, and hardened, it can be smoothed by sanding paper or discs. 

6. Then the panel is put together, ready for the spray painting. This is the last stage of the whole panel beating process where a good quality automobile paint is used that is strong and chip-resistant paint. Take good time to figure out the exact identical paint so that the repairs are easily camouflaged.
