Car Body Repair Ilford

The car manufacturing industry is transforming the core materials from which they manufacture modern vehicles. Likewise, the repairing industry has also evolved.


In the past 10-15 years, various types of high strength steel have been used over other ferrous and standard steel materials. Further, the lightweight materials such as composite materials and aluminium have grown in use. The implementation of these materials in cars helps in decreasing the panel thickness, ultimately reducing the weight of the vehicle. Usage of these materials further maintains high safety crash standards.


With these new materials, there’s a constant change in the way car bodies are being assembled and built. Today, you’ll find fewer instances of spot welding in a car; instead, there’s an increased use of adhesives and rivets.


All these changes in car manufacturing necessitates the introduction of modern techniques to repair them as well. We at Chigwell Motor Works make sure that our mechanics who are responsible for car body repair at Ilford are skilled with all the modern technologies to fix the damage on these contemporary materials built cars.
