Our Car Body Repair Services
Panel beating and spray painting are essential in automotive repair. Panel beating involves reshaping a car’s metal body to its original form after dents or damages. Spray painting, on the other hand, applies paint through specialised spray guns, providing a flawless finish and matching the vehicle’s original colour. Together, these services restore the appearance of a vehicle, making it look brand new.
Car Body Repairs – Panel Beating
If your car suffers from a severely dented panel, our team of committed car dent repair specialists will assess the physical condition of your car before deciding if the damage can be knocked out or if a replacement for its bodywork is needed.
How Panel Beating Works
- Assessment: Our specialists first inspect the affected area of the car body to determine the extent of the damage, providing a foundation for a customised repair approach.
- Disassembly: To gain proper access to the damaged area, certain parts of the vehicle may be disassembled.
- Repair: Our team uses the right tools and techniques such as welding, filling, and sanding to restore the panel’s shape and structure.
- Priming and Painting: The panel is primed and then painted to match the rest of the vehicle’s colour.
- Reassembly: Any parts that were removed are reassembled, ensuring the vehicle is returned to its original condition.

Car Body Repairs – Spray Painting
If you are looking to restore the exterior of your car to regain its original condition, our team of in-house car body repair specialists will conduct a detailed inspection of the damaged areas before spraying your car with a high-quality clear coat for the best shine and gloss.
Benefits of Spray Painting Your Vehicle
- Prevent Rust & Corrosion: Regular exposure to weather elements can cause rust and corrosion on a car’s body. Spray painting acts as a protective layer, sealing the metal surfaces and preventing rust and corrosion from forming. By removing and fixing rust spots before painting, the vehicle’s longevity is increased and further repair needs are minimised.
- Increase Car Value: A well-maintained paint job not only adds aesthetic appeal but also contributes to the vehicle’s resale value. A fresh, professional spray painting by a specialist like AUTOBACS can revitalise the car’s appearance, making it more appealing to potential buyers.
- Customised Look and Feel: Spray painting enables customisation of the vehicle’s appearance to match the owner’s preferences. Whether it’s a complete colour change or touch-ups, spray painting provides endless possibilities to create a unique look.
Benefits of Engaging AUTOBACS for Spray Painting
- Determining the Need for Paint or Wrap: Our repair professionals assess the car’s body condition and recommend the best solution between painting and wrapping, based on the car’s needs and the customer’s preferences.
- Determine the Type of Repainting Needed: Our car dent repair experts evaluate the area requiring paint, the condition of the existing paint, and the desired finish to decide on the suitable repainting method.
Process of Repainting
The process of repainting a vehicle in the repair process involves several key steps. First, it’s essential to prepare the workspace and collect all necessary supplies, ensuring the area is clean and free of dust. Rust spots on the car body must be checked and treated, with light areas sanded and heavily rusted areas sealed. The appropriate type of paint must be selected and designed specifically for vehicles. The car is then sanded and wiped down to remove any dust, and a primer is applied to create a smooth bonding surface. After priming and another round of sanding, three to four layers of paint are applied, allowing each to dry thoroughly. The car body is then covered with lacquer and buffed lightly to remove any blemishes, resulting in a fresh and professional finish.
