Auto Body Repair and Painting

Automobile body repair and painting are lucrative tasks and it is always a necessity for car care as of this age.

Every time I pass by a shop of auto body repair and painting I’m being obsessed. I really want to do it myself. I enjoy manual work and I don’t consider it as hard work for me. If there would be a time or if I could bring back time I would like to learn the secrets of auto body repair and painting.

I have a friend who does the work and he sustains his family out of it. He was once a mechanic but he switched to body repairs that include all motorcycle, tricycle, automobiles, and trucks. The only thing he doesn’t do is painting because he acquired asthma and it would be a struggle for him.

It’s an inevitable instance that car paints fade and need to be repainted to preserve the body from rotting. Accidents come anytime and automobile bodies need to be repaired. And there are hundreds of thousands of car units are moving every day in every part of the world.

If you are skilled you will have a great opportunity to help your self and your family earn a living. If you are interested let’s have the things you needed to invest in in order to effectively do the job.

  1.

      Yes, you can acquire those videos online and I’m sure it will help.

  2. In middle school, I became interested in Cars.  I managed to take four years of mechanic classes.  Tools were a real investment but I still have almost all of them after 40 years.  I bought quality tools because my Dad told me to save a little extra and get upper tier brands.  It wasn’t an expense but a real investment.  It has paid off big time.  

    I had a great little red Chevy Pickup that needed a few dent and ding repairs.  I had a shop teacher that liked body work and one of my classmates had painted a few cars with his dad.  And learned from my Dad when he painted his truck and my Mom’s Car  Those guys knew more tricks with paint than I’ll ever know.  But their teaching was invaluable when it came to painting.  If you want to paint your own car or do it commercially, you will not waste your time with training or classes.

    Thanks for this article.  Very good informatiion.
