Auto Body Shop – Fender Repair
Visit Linear Automotive when you need to find car fender repair in Plano, Richardson, Allen, McKinney, or Frisco, Texas. Linear Automotives Body Shop offers fender repair or replacement due to collision or other damages. Our I-Car® certified technicians provide top quality fender and collision repairs.
Depending on the condition of the fender(s), we will determine whether we should find a replacement or repair the damaged existing fenders. If there are collision damages we will first check the alignment of the vehicle frame to be sure that the frame has not been damaged too. We will also examine the front fenders damaged by the collision, so the gap will be even between the door and the fender edges. The spacing needs to be accurate and even, when it gets replaced or repaired for proper door opening and closing.
The basic repair procedures are essentially the same for any accident by first considering the use of PDR to massage out the smaller and smoother dents that will be responsive and tapping out some of the dents that are more severe. If there are any holes in the metal further dent removal may be needed and then a patch or patches are applied inside and outside of the fender with layers of fill. Once the patch is dried, we use a sanding block with course grit decreasing to a finer grit as completion nears in preparation of the base coat. All the painting processes take place in our hi-tech Accudraft painting booth. After the base coat is dried, then our specialists match the color and apply the matching paint and then it is dried. Then the final clear coats of paint will be applied producing showroom results. Our painting is handled and completed by our I-Car® certified technicians who provide expert color matching and painting to your original auto color.
Damages due to underside rusting fenders are also a very common problem due to the chemicals used during the winter months on the streets in snow prone areas. We will evaluate your auto’s rusting fenders as well as the rest of the vehicle to determine the best solution before it gets worse. We may be able to remove the rust or replace the rusting fenders. If the fenders are severe, it may be better to replace them. Linear Automotive also offers undercoating for rust prevention to keep your vehicle safe from rust getting a hold on your vehicle.
