Panelbeater » Overview


Panelbeaters specialize in auto body repair, which involves repairing or replacing body parts of cars, trucks or other vehicles that have been damaged. The majority of their work results from vehicle collisions; however, some panel beaters prefer to focus on restoration work only. Welding, metallurgy and painting are some of the specialized skills that panel beaters must master. They also have at least a basic understanding of automotive engineering, as they often have to remove parts in order for the body of the vehicle to be worked on. Panelbeaters do not only work on cars, they can also apply their skills to the repair of motorcycles, aircraft and exotic vehicles.
