When thinking about the traditional tinsmith method in the case of repairing our car, we most often think about the need to leave our vehicle for at least a few days in the workshop and whether there will be no visible signs of repair after the repair is finished. If it is necessary to repair body parts made of steel, the repair technology also requires the preparation of the surface for repair and after repair, which is synonymous with the need to recreate the varnish coating on the repaired element or its part, if it is not necessary to paint the entire element. Such a solution is more advantageous from the user's point of view, but it does not guarantee that during the operation of the vehicle, traces of local painting will not become visible or the newly applied lacquer coating will not differ from the previous one. This problem may also appear in the case of repairing a vehicle that has been in operation for several years, in which the varnished element will be distinguished by a new varnish coating from the current one. During the operation of the vehicle, its paint coating is influenced by various external factors, such as dirt from roads, UV radiation or micro-scratches on the varnish coating, which can make the varnish coating increasingly dull. Most often, in the place of sheet metal repair, it is necessary to use a car putty to level the surface. The used car putty coated with car paint creates a thicker paint layer (the thickness of the putty and paint is measured together) than the paint itself. Alone painting by a human hand (elements are factory painted with the use of paint robots, which apply an even layer of lacquer to the painted element set by the manufacturer. The thickness of the factory paint coating, depending on the manufacturer, is 80 - 150 microns) will not be perfectly homogeneous as after factory painting. In the case of recoating a car body part, to reduce the difference in the shade of the varnish coat between the recoated part and the part with the original varnish coating, it is necessary to shade the edge parts. Shading is a technique that allows to compensate for minor differences in color, obtaining a color transition of the newly applied varnish with the original varnish invisible to the human eye. Repaired body parts reduce the value of the vehicle. Undoubtedly, this is the biggest disadvantage of body and paint repairs. The technological process of body and paint repair usually takes several days, including the drying time of the last layer of paint and clear lacquer. At an ambient temperature of approx. 20 degrees Celsius, the paint dries for several hours. This time can be shortened to several dozen minutes using the previously described car dryers. The paint reaches the hardness sufficient for use after several hours, but full after a few days. This means that for a few days after picking up the car after painting, we should avoid washing the car, e.g. in an automatic car wash, which could damage the fresh paint coating. However, body and paint repairs are not limited only to body shell repairs. With the use of appropriate tinsmith equipment, we are able to repair not only the body plating, but also the structural elements of the body, three-dimensional stampings of the pillars bodywork, floor sills. Not all components can be repaired or the repair of a given component is technically possible, but definitely not economically viable. Then the element should be replaced. Bodywork elements such as the hood, boot, doors, front fenders can be easily replaced with new ones because they are attached to the body with bolts, the floor sills, roof trim, rear fender trim, body pillars should be cut out and replaced with a new element. They are attached to the body by means of spot welds, welded or riveted joints. Nowadays, with the use of appropriate tools and the technology of the manufacturer of a given vehicle, almost any type of damage can be repaired.
