What is panel beating and spray painting going to do for my damaged truck?

If you've been involved in an accident and your truck is in need of some bodywork, then you need the services of a professional panel beater. Revolution Paint & Panel does truck panel beating and spray painting to get your truck back in shape to hit the road. Here is some information about what the panel beating and spray painting process is like.


The Basics of Panel Beating

Panel beating is the process of using tools to reshape the dented body panel of a vehicle. Panel beating is a skill that comes from a lot of experience, and the best panel beaters have been reshaping panels for many years. The panel beater also uses special tools to get the job done. Here are some of the tools used and what they do.


Panel Shaping Hammer

You might imagine that a panel beater uses a hammer like the one used to drive nails into a wall. But that's not correct, as not just any hammer will do the job. A panel beater uses many different sizes and shapes of hammers specifically designed and weighted for panel beating.


A Dolly

This is an important tool that's used along with the panel beating hammer. A dolly is a curved metal tool that the panel beater holds in the back of a piece of metal while hammering the front. This allows the panel beater to reshape the metal into the original curves that the body panel had. It takes skill and experience to be able to use a hammer and dooly effectively, but the work a good panel beater can do is amazing.


Oxy-Acetylene Welding Kit

This tool is reserved for the most deformed and stretched panels. When a panel has been badly deformed from an impact, it might be necessary to heat the area to shrink and reform the panel. Heating a metal panel can also be used to anneal the metal, which means that it softens the metal and makes it easier to shape and work with.


What is Spray Painting my Truck Doing to do?

Have you ever wondered what is spray painting? Spray painting comes in many different forms. You can go down to the hardware shop and pick up a rattle can of spray paint, and that's good for small jobs like what one would do at home. But for industrial-grade work, like repairing trucks, industrial-grade spray painting is needed. Spray painting at the scale we do involves large air compressors and large paint hoppers. Big specialised painting tools like these get big jobs done in no time. Our spray painting techniques also ensure that the paint is applied evenly and that the finished product will look great.
