Have you been involved in a smash that requires fibreglass repairs? Does your vehicle have fibreglass panels? You have found the right repairer. Body Works Clinic have extensive knowledge, and qualified staff to ensure your fibreglass repair is done right the first time.
Although there are many perks behind fibreglass, it’s a lightweight material which improves its performance and reduces wind resistance.
However, there are some rather major flaws as well:
- Because of this light material, it is incredibly easy to damage, even if you just accidentally open the car door too fast and strike the car door next to you.
- It can be incredibly difficult to locate a panel beater in Melbourne who knows how to work with fibreglass and what they are doing when it comes to looking after your repairs.
Due to this, you need to know who to look for, what to look for in a repair shop and what to check, all of which helps you keep your prized vehicle looking as beautiful as the day you purchased it.
You might initially think that fibreglass and traditional panels are similar, and while they do attach to the frame of the vehicle in a similar manor, the two materials are incredibly different. The plastic and metal design of the traditional panels allow panel beaters to be a bit more tough with the installation of the new sections. These kinds of panels can take a bit more wear and tear, although they are heavier and reduce your car’s performance.
Because fibreglass is lighter and more fragile, panel beaters have to be careful when installing new panels, if not they are just going to damage the new panel. As there are some major construction differences, when searching for appropriate technician, you need to first look at what kind of cars the repair facility works on. High-end performance cars are desirable, so always check to see if they regularly work on fibreglass. There is no reason to pay for a repair if it is just going to end up inferior anyway.
