Smart Ways to Properly Take Care of Your Vehicle

 

car plastic trim scuff repair

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

SMART Repairs, what are they I hear you ask?

SMART repair techniques have been developed to help maintain a vehicle in pristine condition without traditional expensive time consuming body shop repairs. It lends itself well to repairing scuffs, chips and scratches that affect the look and value of a vehicle. SMART repair techniques use state of the art techniques and products technicians ensure the highest standards of work, preserving the integrity of the original paintwork. These techniques have been used by garages for many years, but are still relatively unknown with car owners.

Alloy Wheel Repair

The cost of replacing factory fitted alloys can be prohibitive; but not to worry, most typical alloy wheel kerb scuffs and scratches can be removed by an alloy wheel refurbishment specialist.

The damaged area on the wheel is sanded down, sometime filled and repainted to match the existing colour without leaving a mark. Often it is possible to repair the alloy wheel without even removing the tyre.

Dashboard Repair

Unsightly phone installation holes in dashboards can be made to disappear by filling, replicating the original texture and re-colouring the area.

If any part of the interior trim is scratched, cracked or damaged, then it is highly likely that it can be repaired rather than replaced.

If the paint has not been damaged, then a highly skilled operator will gradually 'massage' the dent until it is back to the original shape. Ideal for hail stone storm dents, shopping trolley dents, even golf ball accidents!

Windscreen Repair

Windscreen chips and scratches can be unsightly and depending on their position impair vision and possibly result in MOT failure.

The cracks, chips and bulls-eyes are thoroughly cleaned, a vacuum is created to suck out moisture and air before the damaged is filled with resin. UV-Light technology is used to harden the resin. The windscreen is then cleaned of excess resin and the area polished flat.

Stone Chip Repair

Depending on the extent of the damage, touching in with a brush will cover the damage and prevent future rust problems. However, there are situations where SMART repair techniques are the only cost effective solution to restore the paintwork to its original condition.

The chips and scuffs are rubbed down, primed and repainted using colour matched paint. When a good repair has been made, it will go un-noticed.
