What is body panel replacement and does my car need it?Body panel replacement is the preferred repair method when a certain section of the automobile has suffered major damage and it'll be more cost-effective to replace that entire section than to take the time to fix the damage. At O.C. Bumper & Body, our experienced technicians are experts at doing body panel replacement. Here are some of the kinds of body panel replacement that are done after accidents.

Door Replacement

Today's automobiles have doors with electronic components and a lot of moving parts. For this reason, it's usually more economical to replace the door than to repair it.

Hood Replacement

Hoods often become crumpled in rear-end collisions, making body panel replacement the preferred option to return the vehicle to its pre-accident condition. Also, when a hood has a major dent that won't pop out, it could be worth it to go ahead and install a new one.

Trunk Lid Replacement

Damaged trunk lids are usually easy to replace, which makes body panel replacement the best way to go when a trunk lid gets mangled.

Fender Replacement

Sometimes people use the word "fender" when they're really talking about a bumper. But it's worth keeping in mind that a fender is a different part of the vehicle----it is the section of the car that begins at the front end of the front doors and then goes over the front wheels.

Bumper Replacement

By design, bumpers regularly take the brunt of impacts in collisions, leaving them significantly deformed. When a bumper is damaged, it's often best to just go ahead and replace it. But in some cases, the damage is light enough that repair is a worthwhile option, and at O.C. Bumper & Body, we specialize in bumper repair in Irvine, CA.
