You will need
- Epoxy car putty;
- -automotive paint-color of your body;
- -sandpaper or timber;
- -brush, roller, sponge or spray gun;
- -a piece of drape or other coarse cloth.
Treat the surface of the dent with sand paper or a diamond whetstone with a fine abrasive. The main thing is to clean the whole surface gently, leaving the old paint or other finishing marks. Clean the dent, capturing a small portion around. This should be done for uniform distribution of filler and a good coupling with the metal.
After Stripping the dents be sure to degrease the treated area. Remove the moisture and particles of paint left on the dent under the influence of static electricity.
Apply epoxy putty to the surface of the dent, capturing the area around her. Do not attempt to align the putty to "zero" with the wing surface. First, after drying it a little "sit down", and secondly, after drying, you will still need to Polish the treated place.
Wait for the complete drying out of putty exactly to withstand the time specified in the instructions for use. Using a coarse piece of cloth Polish the surface of the wing where it is applied plaster. You must ensure that the surface was smooth, with no irregularities and have no inclusions.
Apply the paint to the treated area of the wing. What you do depends on your preferences and skills of painting. You can use a brush, roller, sponge or paint restored piece with the spray. Dry the surface of the painting. Dry the car surface, or, waiting for natural drying, or by placing the wing in the drying chamber. In the latter case, the alignment process is greatly accelerated.
The method described above the alignment of the dent on the fender not the only one. There is also a method, when the dent is pressed out from the inside.
If you have no experience in squeezing dents from the inside, it is strongly recommended to Bondo a dent. This method is the most simple and easy and will not lead to additional deformation of the surfaces under the sloppy performance of work.
When painting the wing manually, you can use a household Hairdryer. The injection of hot air will not only speed up the process of drying, but also will help you to apply paint evenly.
Advice 2: How to rectify the body
If the back of your car a dent, you can try to resolve it on their own. Will it do it or not - it depends on how serious the deformity.
You will need
- - normal hammer;
- - rubber hammer (mallet);
- - a wooden block (length – 15 to 20 cm, width 10 cm);
- - clean rags (old cotton rag)
When you hit anything on the car almost certainly it will remain very unattractive trace of external influence. Can be divided indentation plots for the 2 main types which are:- have a real chance to resolve;- will stay on the machine permanently. For example, the footprint of the strike a young child who accidentally collided with a car was parked and she decided to "fight back" any object can be removed without consequences. If there was a collision of car with another vehicle, return the absolute initial view of the damaged area is likely to be impossible.
For any site, on which the blow fell, the technology is the elimination of dents on the bodywork of the car is almost the same, excluding some minor details. For example, if you need to remove the defect on your doors, you should first clear the space to work: raise the window until it stops, remove the inside paneling and insulation.
Then find a dent during the inspection door on the inside. The same side straighten trim very light taps with a rubber mallet. If this method fails, wrap a rag (a clean rag) a wooden block, attach to the area with the dent, and then a very light taps, try to straighten it. Thus, gradually you will be able to resolve this issue.
If you want to remove the dent on the fender of the car, first open the trunk and remove the lining. In this case, the job is much more space. Further, the technology is the same as in the previous case. After you remove the dent completely, it is advisable to carefully Polish the area subjected to correction. So you will be able to remove even the smallest traces of deformation.
More severe injuries fail to resolve completely unnoticed. For example, if a car door was hit with something sharp, leaving a shallow, but sharp corners and a dent on the casing. In this case, the metal can't bounce because the area of deformation is very small. Therefore, a dent is better amenable to correction.
To remove the sharp dent on the plating machine, you will need a wooden block. Its size should be sufficient to ensure that you could rest them in the depressed portion and hitting with a hammer on the bar. Using this method you can align the cavity. However, the external side of this end of the machine will still be pretty heavily damaged, and it has not come out to fix it. The only thing you can do is to keep deformation to a minimum.
After you have smoothed the dent, you need to sand this whole area with fine emery paper, and then zashpatlevat and to paint it.
Not to break away once again from work, it is desirable to collect near all the working material that will be needed in the process of removing dents.
Advice 3: How to straighten a dent on the car
The dent that appeared on the back of the car, can ruin not only the appearance of the vehicle, but also the mood of its owner. Often remove dents in auto repair shop. But if the body deformation is not very significant, you can try to get rid of it on their own.
You will need
- - hammer;
- - mallet;
- - wooden block;
- - clean rags.
Inspect the damaged surface of the car body and determine the type of dents. Deformed plots can be divided into two categories. Dents of the first type appear weak mechanical impact, for example from a kick or a hand on the car door. Them to resolve on their own relatively simply. The second type of damage – when a dent appears from a collision with another vehicle or solid object. Fully straighten out such a dent to almost impossible.
Prepare the space for work. Clean the damaged area from pollution. If the dent is located, for example, on the door until it stops, lift the glass, remove the inner trim and remove the other design elements that may interfere in work.
Please rate the degree of damage, examining the car door from the inside. Rubber mallet from the inside, apply a few light blows on the deformed site. In some cases, the mallet does not help. Then wrap a clean rag suitable size wooden block, attach it to the dent and start making a light tapping from a hammer. Gradually, the damaged area will straighten up.
If a dent appeared on the side of the car, open the Luggage compartment and remove the covering. This will provide more space for work. After inspecting the dent on the wing, follow the same steps described above for doors. Make the outside of the body surface became more smooth.
Eliminating the defect, smooth external surface of the body in damaged areas, Prime and paint with matching colour paint. This will allow to almost completely remove even the smallest signs of damage. But if the dent was very significant in size, it is possible that straightening it completely without a trace you will not succeed. In this case it is better to go on additional expenses and to entrust the processing of damaged bodywork professionals.
