Let me know if you want me to use your username or if you would like another name or business credited. Feel free to add a collision repair related website if you wish. You can reply to this post or e-mail me at learnautobody@gmail.com

This will also serve a a great resource to find tips to help others on this forum.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Collision Repair Tips

I will start it.

Here is a tip that one of my students provided.

To prevent damaging or scratching adjacent body panels when repairing, replacing or sanding, mask the adjacent panel edges with masking tape.

Re: Collision Repair Tips

To determine if an aftermarket part has high quality primer, use a rag with lacquer thinner on it to wipe an area. If the primer transfers to the rag, it is low quality primer. If no primer rubs off, the primer is high quality.

Re: Collision Repair Tips

The primer has to be dry first right, just wanting you to be specific.

Re: Collision Repair Tips

Hi Guys

Heres a tip . Anytime that your using the frame machine, sure that the chain is a STRAIGHT 90 degrees to the tower and also have the hook pointing to the floor. Youll less of a chance if it coming loose from the car.

Re: Collision Repair Tips

Mark, thanks for the great safety tip.

AutoBodyMan, yes I am talking about dry primer. What I mean if you bought an after market part or something like that. This will help you determine if you need to strip the part to metal or not.

Thanks for the tips.
