Certified Aluminum Auto Body Repair Shop

The use of aluminum in vehicle construction continues to increase with each model year. Some vehicles are constructed almost entirely out of aluminum, while others may only have certain parts and panels made of aluminum, such as the hood, fenders, doors, and trunk lid. Aluminum is also commonly used in mechanical parts. When aluminum is used for exterior panels, the benefit is less weight with strength similar to steel.

Aluminum vs Steel

Typically, aluminum panels will be thicker than a steel panel and still weigh less. Aluminum panels may be used in conjunction with aluminum, magnesium, steel, or composite materials

Aluminum Panel Repair

Aluminum repairs are much different than steel. Steel has “metal memory” which means it easily can be returned to its original structure. Aluminum is more pliable and special tools are needed to repair dents. Aluminum also reacts differently to heat. Too much heat can compromise the integrity of aluminum. Due to this act, many vehicles with extensive aluminum components use alternative methods to connect parts besides welding.

Several vehicle brands have models with aluminum panels or structures.

The shift to aluminum is primarily to reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency. Here are some notable brands and models that have embraced aluminum:

  1. Ford: The F-150 truck, starting from the 2015 model year, famously transitioned to a high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body.
  2. Jaguar: Jaguar has been at the forefront of the shift to aluminum, using it extensively in models like the XJ, XF, and F-TYPE.
  3. Land Rover: The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models utilize an all-aluminum unibody structure.
  4. Audi: Audi uses aluminum in various parts of its vehicles, such as the A8 which has an aluminum space frame.
  5. Tesla: The Model S and Model X both use aluminum bodies.
  6. BMW: While BMW primarily uses a mix of steel and carbon fiber, some models like the 5 and 7 series do have aluminum components.
  7. Mercedes-Benz: Mercedes uses aluminum extensively in several models, especially in the SL and SLS AMG.
  8. Cadillac: The CT6 utilizes a mix of aluminum and steel for its structure.
  9. Alfa Romeo: The Giulia and Stelvio have aluminum body panels.
  10. Chevrolet: The Corvette has used aluminum frames for several generations now.
  11. Porsche: Models like the 911 and Panamera use a blend of materials, including aluminum.

It's worth noting that many automakers use a blend of steel, aluminum, carbon fiber, and other materials to achieve optimal weight, strength, and cost factors. When seeking repairs, it's crucial to know if your vehicle has aluminum components, as they require specialized repair techniques.

1. Assessment & Disassembly. The first step in the auto body repair process is determining the full extent of your vehicle’s damage. During this phase, the components of your car will be disassembled and examined so your auto body mechanic can give you the clearest picture of the damage and what must be done to mitigate it, as well as provide an estimate for the work.
2. Repair. Once a repair plan has been made, your auto body technician will order any parts necessary and complete the repairs outlined on your estimate. This may include replacement or repairs of internal and external components of your car.
3. Paint. After repairs have been completed, the exterior of your vehicle will receive auto body paint to repair cosmetic damage and seamlessly match any new components with the existing body of your car.
