Dent St Albans
This silver Nissan in St Albans had been driven too close to a width restriction and as a result dented and scuffed the rear door. This customer had been told by a local body shop that only by replacing the door would he be able to get it repaired.
The indented area had to be pulled out and then filled in order to reshape the section to its former glory, followed by paint then clear coat. The hardest part of this job was getting the blend right; silver is a notoriously difficult paint to blend in.
The job took slightly over 3 hours to complete and looks like new (no replacement door required).
Wheel arch panel scrape ware Hertfordshire
This customer returned to there car form a visit to the local shops and found that in that time someone had scraped the rear wheel arch panel of there car which had created a dent and scuff along the panel. The rear wheel arch is one of the strongest panels on a car; they usually have an inner skin and multiple curved areas so any scrape or knock that you might have on the rear is tough to remove. This dented panel had to be beaten in to shape then filled to remove any further imperfections. The job was carried out at the customer’s home address in ware Hertfordshire in less than 3 hours.

Lower Sill Damage Radlett
Rolling the car over a high kerb caused this deep set of scratches shown in the photos below. The car was based in Radlett Hertfordshire.

As you can see from the repair photo it looks as good as new and fixed in under 2 hours.

Scuffed and Dented Door and Wing in Colindale London

Multiple Dented Panels on BMW in Muswell Hill North London
We can take on most types of repairs when it comes to light collision damage but this job was something else. This customer had left his car outside his house over night and on his way out of his home he noticed that during the night someone had gone into the side of his car. The damage was quite severe and really outside of a SMART repairers ability to make a perfect job of it, but due to the age of the vehicle he didn’t want to spend a fortune at a body shop or go through his insurance so he contacted us and asked if we could do the best job we could. We don’t usually take on jobs we can’t make perfect but after a lot of persuasion we agree to make it as good as we could.
The photo doesn’t show the extent of the damage well but you can see from the amount of filler applied to both the front and rear doors that it was a big one. The job took just over 4 hours to complete and on inspection of the finished repair it looked virtually perfect.

Dented Panel Scratch on Lower Door St Albans
This dented scrape on the lower door panel was caused by taking a corner too early. The door caught a low post as the car was turning. As you can see its only slightly pushed in. We had to pull out as much of the impression as we could then skimmed some filler in to get the shape perfect. The entire lower section of the door had to be be blown in to blend in the paint.
As you can see an outstanding result for a fraction of the cost of a bodyshop.

Car Panel Repair Loughton Essex
As you can see from the photos below the damage is on the front off side wing and also scuffing to the lower bumper section. The two damaged car panels need different types of repairs. The metal wing panel needed the large dent pulled out and the remainder filled where as the plastic bumper panel was a straight forward scuff repair. The job was carried out on a day when it rained a lot so the repair time took longer than usual. The paint was blown up the wing and across the bumper to blend it in with the rest of the panels.
