GENERAL INFORMATION

Considerable damages of a body need to be repaired at service stations at which there is an equipment for body repair.

If extensive damages take place, it is necessary to check body geometry. They can also influence characteristics of driving or lead to the fact that other components will quicker wear out.

Because all main components of a body (a cowl, wings, etc.) represent separate elements which can be replaced, best of all to give their replacement, but not repair. Sometimes the required details can be found in shops selling second-hand spare parts that is much cheaper, than purchase of new.
