What is Panel Beating?

Panel beating refers to shifting panels back to their original shape, after they have become bent or dented. This may occur due to a crash or a scrape, and they are usually relatively easy to fix.

Panel beater services that we offer:

There are a number of different car panel repair techniques that our staff are fully trained to utilise, to ensure that your car ends up looking brand new. Depending on the type of damage to your car, they might use a number of these different panel beating services:

  • Planishing

Planishing is a type of panel beating for finer details and dents. It involves using a smaller tool, such as a specialised hammer, and softly hitting the metal into place. This is a lot more delicate than hammering out larger dents, and allows the panel to form the exact shape that it was before it got damaged.

  • Welding

This is a technique that involves using heat to melt two (or more) pieces of metal together to form a panel for the car. For example, if a car panel has eroded due to rust, we can use a new piece of steel (or whatever material your car is made from) and weld the two together to form a single panel. Or if a part of the car needs to be realigned, the metal will be welded to the correct alignment.

  • Filling

Filling refers to the process of adding a layer of putty to any problem areas on the car. First, the problem area needs to be sanded, because the putty sticks better to metal, than to paint. The putty can then be molded and shaped to the correct contours of the panel, smoothing out any dents. The panel beater will then sand over the putty to smooth it out, and then it can be painted over.

  • Replacement

Unfortunately, there are some situations that no amount of panel beating will be able to fix. In these rare instances, when parts of your car have been too badly damaged to salvage, our staff will inform you, and they will source the replacement panel. You don’t have to do anything, and you still get a great final result.

This is not an exhaustive list of the panel beating services that we offer, there are a number of other techniques that our trained professionals rely on to make your car look brand new after a dent.
