GENERAL INFORMATION

Considerable damages of a body are necessary for repairing at service stations on which there is an equipment for body repair.

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

Because all main components of a body (a cowl, wings, etc.) represent separate elements which it is possible to replace, best of all to bring their replacement, instead of repair. Sometimes demanded details can be found in shops on sale of second-hand spare parts that is much cheaper, than purchase of the new.
