Checking the colour

In order to see whether the machine involved in accidents, you can use a special device – the thickness of paint coatings. This unit defines the thickness of the paint which is deposited on the item. Lean the device to the necessary parts of the car body, after which the display shows the paint thickness to check the details. Typically, the thickness of the applied paint on the factory car varies from 80 to 150 microns. If the item was repainted for the paint, paint thickness will be much greater, about 200 microns. There are great values in those cases when in the process of repair putty was used. Also the device can display, on the contrary, a very small amount. This means that after painting has been done several times the procedure of abrasive polishing, or painting technology was incorrect, without the use of soil. Thickness is not the cheapest device, but at the moment there are a lot of companies and individuals offering rental of this device.

Check headlight and glass

If in the event of an accident the collision occurred on one side only, headlamps must be different, so when choosing a machine don't forget to check them out. Possible, lights will be externally identical, but the serial numbers are different headlights to match can not, therefore, one of the lights with different rooms is not the works that may indicate a possible involvement of this car in an accident. Do not forget to check the marking of car Windows. Automotive plant on all Windows machines churning out the same marking, so it is a mismatch on a certain glass means that it replaced.

Rapid corrosion of broken car

If the car is covered with a thick layer of mud is the first sign of the different defects that the seller so just trying to hide it. Usually broken car rather quickly rots. When purchasing, check problem areas such as wheel arches, sills and the bottom for rust. For this procedure, you will need a viewing hole or overpass.

Checking clearances

Another sign of involvement of the vehicle in the accident is the difference of gap sizes. For example, between the bonnet and wing there are gaps of a certain size, and in the case that the sizes of these clearances on both sides do not match each other, the car has undergone a poor repair, perhaps after the accident. To check the gap in car doors need to open them and shake up and down to determine end play in hinges.
