A Look At How Car Panels Are Replaced

Most people know how to complete simple driving-related tasks, such as filling a car’s gas tank and changing its fuel, but many people are unaware of the behind the scenes processes. Watch this video for a look at how car panels are replaced.

The first step is to place the new panel against the body of the car, being sure to securely lock it in place with clamps. After it is welded, the seams are caulked so that they can prevent water from seeping into the back seat or trunk of the car.
