Let’s face it, no one wants to be in a fender bender. But the truth is, they’re a common type of accident. When you get into a minor fender bender, the external body damage may not seem too bad. A slight crumple in the hood, maybe some scratched paint, perhaps a dented bumper or a banged up fender might seem like easy body repairs that could be repaired in a few days or weeks. Sometimes you might drive away without even seeing a body shop, thinking you’ll just deal with the cosmetic damage. However, sometimes the most expensive and alarming damage is inside the car, even if exterior damage seems minor. It is always wise to have an auto body shop inspect your car, especially the fender itself as too often people wait to get their fenders maintenance after an incident. Here is our process for fixing fenders in a cost-effective, timely manner.
Ric’s Body and Paint ensures your fender is thoroughly inspected and properly repaired. We begin by inspecting the exterior damage of your fender. Our expert technicians then remove any necessary trim and hardware to fully assess the damage.
This process ensures that we examine the impact closer and also allows us to identify the very best plan for how to conduct the fender repair properly. Our team repairs the fender, by carefully working the material to restore the fender’s shape and fit.
Once all of the damaged areas are repaired, we apply primer, allow it to cure, and sand it down to create a smooth surface for the paint to be applied. Worried about the paint? Relax, we use computer technology to mix the proper paint to perfectly match your vehicle’s color. We use waterborne based paint, which is better for the environment, and then apply the clear coating. We are sure to buff out any other flaws as needed for an even surface. In the event cosmetic fixes to the fender will not suffice, we also handle full replacements and always match the paint. Ultimately, you can trust us to make your fender look brand new again.
