Most mobile repair set ups are called SMART repairs. These will generally repair only very small dents and scrapes, but at Southern Autokraft we can repair larger areas of damage (home page images). This is mainly due to our technician being one of a few remaining panel beater/painters. In the modern bodyshop you are either a panel beater or a painter. If the repair is deemed to large to do in a single day at your home or workplace then we can take the vehicle away to be repaired in a garage.
Modern vehicle bumpers are mostly
made of plastic, which is a very
malleable material. With heat applied
the extent to which plastic will repair
can be quite suprising. Cracks and splits
can also be repaired either by plastic
welding, or with a special bonding kit,
giving a very strong and durable repair.
Repairing your bumper instead of a
costly replacement not only reduces the
impact on your wallet but it also
reduces the impact on the environment
with most replaced bumpers going to
landfill sites not to recycling.
Whether it be a single panel key scratch or
there is damage to the complete side of
your car**, at Southern Autokraft we can take
care of it. Dents are pulled out with a special panel puller minimising the amount of filler needed to re-shape the panel thus making for a "true" repair. If a panel replacement is necessary, provided the panel is bolt on and not a welded panel, then this is also a repair we can undertake.
Alloy wheel refurbs*
Alloy wheels are the most commonly damaged area of your car's exterior. there realy is no worse sound to a motorist than that of your shiny alloy wheels scraping against a kerb due to some poorly executed parking! But fear not, a quick call to Southern Autokraft and your wheels can be back to pre-kerbing condition in no time at all!
Does your car's paintwork appear dull or faded?
This is caused by many things. From automated
car washes to strong sunshine, your car's paint has to put up with a lot, and in today's fast lane lifestyle most of us simply don't have the time to take the required measures to maintain our pride and joy's
factory sheen. At Southern Autokraft we offer a machine polishing service. Whether it's country lane driving scratches (normally down the passenger side caused by driving too close to hedges) or your red car has turned pink due to sun bleaching, we can buff the gloss back into your vehicle and make it look like new again!
