Schedule an appointment when you need car hood repair in Plano, Richardson, Allen, McKinney, Frisco, or the surrounding areas. Our Body Shop can repair or replace your damaged vehicle hood to looking great again. If you have been in a collision or if your garage door landed on the hood, or even if the sun has taken a toll of the hood paint, we offer affordable quality repairs completed by I-Car certified technicians.
Collisions are always an interruption in our lives, and can sometimes take time and can be frustrating. Linear Body Shop works with all insurance companies to get your auto repaired and back on the road quickly. When a hood is damaged there are likely more damages to the front end of the vehicle. The hood is a critical component that must fit properly to protect the engine compartment. If it lacks proper fit, then the hood could potentially pop open unexpectedly while driving. The whole repair will be evaluated to determine whether a new hood is a safer choice for a better fit. During the evaluation we may also check the vehicle frame for any damages.
There are additional parts that impact the fit of the hood. The strongest part of the hood is the hood hinge mechanism that allows easy opening and closing by eliminating some of the total weight for the user with some having large springs. If the hood is damaged then likely the hood hinge is also bent preventing proper alignment and fit. The hood support or strut may also need replacement if it is bent or damaged. The control of the internal release of the hood is affected by the hood release cable and the latch which is connected to the hood release handle located on the interior driver’s side.
If your hood was the target of the garage door, a basketball, or anything thrown such as a rock, Linear may be able to repair the dings and dents with our PDR services (Paintless Dent Repair). Painting is usually not needed, but occasionally either a touch-up or a full painting will restore the new look again. Some paint finishes are better than others, but when a silver color gets baked on the hood, the color can fade, get blotchy, or even look oxidized from the sun. At that point it will no longer protect the metal and leaves it open to rust. Our body shop is equipped with one of the finest painting booths available today. Linear Body Shop can paint to restore your faded hood or even paint the entire vehicle to showroom condition again.
