ALUMINUM IS NOT THE SAME AS STEEL
Aluminum has significant differences between steel which means that working with this metal requires understanding of how to do the repairs properly. Our experienced shop knows how these two metals work and differ. Taking your car to an inexperienced body shop ensures they might make more harm than good.
Aluminum does not:
- Have the same moldable properties that steel does.
- Respond to heat as well as steel does.
The New Chrome?
The aluminum trim has replaced many chrome-plated steel and stainless trim parts because it can be polished to have a chrome-like finish.
Where can you find aluminum on your car?
- Die-cast into emblems, letters, and doorknobs.
- Stamped into step plates and raised moldings.
- Extruded into side moldings and other components.
Excellent Auto Body Aluminum Repair Work
At West Coast Body and Paint we work all types of metal, aluminum being one of them. Aluminum is a light, strong, corrosion-resistant metal, and less expensive than steel that is why manufacturers are starting to use aluminum more than ever. We know that aluminum requires aluminum specific tools and more attention. That’s why West Coast Body and Paint has the experienced technicians, tools, and knowledge to repair your aluminum body back to its pre-accident condition.
“Let me start by saying and not in a pretentious manner, I own a Bentley. And, as you can imagine, the repairs for this car can be pricey. After receiving estimates from three different body shops, my gut told me to go with West Coast Body & Paint. I did and am I MORE THAN PLEASED/SATISFIED with the results. The passenger side fender, that I dented, was restored to factory new. The owner, Jaider, took time to explain the entire process and the intricacies of working with aluminum. He sent pics offering the step by step progression. And lastly, in comparison to the other estimates that I received, West Coast Body & Paint was, by far, reasonable. One guy looked at my car and stated that his shop did not have the expertise to work with aluminum and suggested that I replace it altogether for $10,000. Jaider and his team are my go to for auto body repairs and should be yours too. In fact, he and I have, already, discussed my next auto fix. Want your car done right, visit West Coast Body & Paint. Tell them that a Bentley owner sent you.”
