How Auto Reconditioning Will Help Your Vehicle

 

car body trim repair

As an owner of a vintage car that has needed complete restoration, I know the value of do-it-yourself projects. By doing the car repairs or restorations yourself, you can save thousands of dollars. One of the most often needed repairs for vintage cars is the upholstery. Let me give you some easy tips for repairing it yourself. First of all, you should always clean the upholstery before starting any repair projects. Use an upholstery cleaner that is made specifically for the type of upholstery you have and always follow the manufacturers instructions to the letter. I prefer to spot test the cleaner in an out-of-the-way place just to be sure. You will be amazed at what a good cleaning can do for old upholstery! Sometimes it will reveal potential problem areas that you can repair before they become a big problem.

Do some research ahead of time and see if this do it yourself project is something you think you can do. You don't want that vintage muscle car looking awesome on the outside and old as dirt on the inside. With a little work you can get it in top notch shape!

Advice and Tips on Repairing Your Car's Upholstery

SMART is an acronym and typically stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Technique.

SMART Repair as a specific and recognized discipline has only been around for 15 years or so and has grown rapidly as mainstream automotive dealers now embrace the repair as a professional repair. Previously all bodywork restoration had been carried out with traditional equipment and techniques and involved painting or repairing entire and adjoining panels even when the damage was small.

As the name suggests, the system began as an alternative to full re-sprays for chipped paint and evolved from there into an entirely new discipline, related to but separate from bodyshop techniques, able to professionally repair all the everyday damage a vehicle is likely to acquire.

There are numerous techniques employed today and the technology and materials are ever evolving but typically, the following disciplines are typically delivered as SMART Repair:

• Paint Spot Repair - Chips, scuffs, scratches for most areas of the car bodywork.

• Alloy Wheel Repair - kerbed alloy rims, scratched alloys

• Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) - dents, dings

• Windshield Repair - bulleye's, small cracks

• Plastic Trim Repair - cracked bumpers, mirror casing cracks

• Interior Repair - cigarette burns, cracked dashboards, leather wear and fade
