Car Bodywork Repair Chingford

Professional Auto Bodywork Repair Services

 

Whoops, can undertake car bodywork repairs for superficial bodywork damage such as chips and scratches. We use an industry-standard paint system from Standox. This consists of around 45 colours and thousands of paint combinations. We can recreate any manufacturer’s colour by simply typing a paint code into our computer and mixing the correct amount of the necessary colours. 

Car bodywork damage is removed using sanders and papers, colour is applied and sealed with a clear coat, and then the car is de-masked and polished where needed. The result is renewed bodywork back to its showroom finish.

We provide car bodywork repairs and retouching throughout Chingford for a wide range of car makes. Superficial bodywork repairs and retouching can be carried out by our mobile service and small chip repair can be completed within 1-2 hours.

Minor Car Bodywork Repair Chingford

 

Car owners are looking for superficial car bodywork repairs for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is to repair minor damage resulting from an accident, such as bumper repairs and scrapes, and we are happy to quote for insurance purposes. Other owners are simply looking to restore the looks of their car, either as an alternative to buying a new car, or to prepare their car for selling.

Carrying out minor bodywork repairs and a full body polish can make your car more appealing to buyers as well as reducing their ability to haggle down the price.

Even owners who aren’t so worried about looks will still want to have scratches and chips repaired to prevent them providing an opening for the development of rust. And if you’ve leased a car, it can be much cheaper to get us to fix any minor body work issues than to be charged for repairs by the lease company.

Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels Chingford | Repair & Refurbishment

We at Whoops Wheel Fix It are Chingford’s highest rated Diamond cut alloy wheel repair and refurbishment specialist with industry leading equipment that allows us to guarantee premium quality repairs and refurbishments.

Diamond cut alloy wheels have a polished metal rim or front face. This is achieved by cutting the wheel with a tool on a lathe. Once the colour has been applied the polished area is cut. A clear coat of lacquer is then used to seal the repair and give the wheel its gloss.

This can’t be achieved on site and wheels have to be removed from the car and sent off to a specialist factory, leaving the car off the road for a few days. However, we will remove the wheels and refit them for you at your home, minimising any inconvenience.

The process gives you a very reflective result as the shine in the cut metal shows through, giving a more classy and expensive look to the car. The increased reflectivity also makes the wheels more noticeable, which appeals to many owners.

Diamond Cut Alloy

Affordable and Quick Services

This is a very popular finish for high spec cars, with some of the more upmarket brands offer diamond cut finish as an optional extra when they are new. Owners who have opted for a diamond cut will usually want to retain the car’s original looks and seek a diamond cut refurbishment. But it is possible to go for a standard finish instead if preferred. As well as being a more affordable option, reverting to a standard finish means that we can complete the job in half a day (2-3 hours typically), so the owner doesn’t lose use of the car. However for those who appreciate a diamond cut finish, little else will do.

Bespoke Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

 

With many more car owners choosing to keep hold of their cars for a longer period, refurbishing your alloy wheels, perhaps combined with a full body polish, also available via our mobile vans, can be a way to restore that ‘new car feeling’ without the cost of buying a new car. And for higher spec cars, where often the value of owning such a car lies in the impression it makes, wheel refurbishment is a relatively low cost way to maintain its looks.

The cost of refurbishment will vary according to wheel size and car model, but for around £50-65 + VAT per wheel for a standard finish and up to around £120 + VAT per wheel for a Diamond Cut or Powder finish, alloy wheel refurbishment can be a cost-effective option.

But alloy wheel refurbishment can also be useful for other reasons. Minor chips and scratches can open up the way for more serious damage such as corrosion, so you will reduce the chances of long term damage to the wheel surface, and perhaps protect the value of your car, by arranging a refurbishment. 

Professional Alloy Refurbishment Services

We use bead breakers to expose the whole front face of the wheel, allowing us to wrap the paint right around the edge of the wheel. We also completely cover the tyre with shrink-wrap to stop overspray from contacting the rubber, leaving your tyre looking fresh and clean. We’ve installed state of the art ‘prep n spray’ zones in our mobile vans that improve the process of removing kerb damage from your alloy wheels. We use vacuum sanders to reduce the amount of dust that can land in the paint, giving your wheels a flatter, more glossy finish.

Bespoke Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Experts

Our alloy wheel lacquer is hardened under UV light, which means once out of the oven the surface is fully cured and is capable of withstanding jet washing immediately. Our alloy wheel repairs are suitable for all makes of car including Mercedes, BMW, Aston Martin, Audi, and Jaguar. We offer the following wheel finishes: a standard finish with one colour/one coat of lacquer, hyper silver, and shadow chrome, bespoke alloy wheel finishes with more than one coat/finish and diamond cut alloy wheels.

However for those who appreciate a diamond cut finish, little else will do.

In addition to our standard alloy wheel repairs or specialist finishes, we can also carry out repairs to bespoke paint finishes, or apply a new bespoke finish to a standard alloy wheel.

For instance, a wheel may have a standard finish in the centre, but have a chrome or metal effect on the rim. Others may have a colour stripe along the spokes, while some owners choose to have the colour of the pocket colour-coordinated with the rest of the car.

Whoops can recreate these specialist alloy wheels if they become damaged. We can also create different finishes to your original wheels which make your car look more unique and personalised to you.

A bespoke finish refers to any finish that includes more than one colour on the wheel, and creating or repairing them takes, as you’d expect, a lot more time and skill. A bespoke finish or repair cannot be carried out by our mobile service, but requires wheels to be removed and taken to a factory. The work can take up to 1 to 2 weeks, after which we will bring them back to you and refit at your home.

The cost of a bespoke wheel repair or creating a bespoke finish is between £65-150 + VAT per wheel, depending on the finishes involved and the complexity of the design – so please call us to discuss what you need so we can give you a more accurate quote.

The main reason for a car owner choosing a bespoke alloy wheel finish will usually be personal taste, and in particular the desire to create something completely original. And if you do have a strong desire to really personalise your car, this could be a cheaper option than, say, acquiring a personalised number plate which could cost thousands.

Another strong reason for a bespoke repair could simply be that you own a car which had a bespoke finish when you bought it – so will need a bespoke repair in the event of any damage.

Hyper silver and shadow chrome alloy wheel finishes each give the effect of a metal finish in the paint. To achieve this both processes require a lot more time and skill in their application compared to a standard finish. It is for this reason that these finishes are not available as part of our mobile service, but require the wheels to be taken to a factory – so it will involve losing use of the car for a few days.

The cost of a hyper silver or shadow chrome finish is the same, but the final effect is slightly different. Hyper silver produces an aluminium/metal finish, while shadow chrome produces a gun metal finish which is darker in appearance.

The wheel is prepared in the same way as a standard finish but in addition a lacquered ground coat is applied to the wheel. A special power silver (a very fine silver dust) is then carefully applied in layers to allow the gloss of the ground coat to shine through. The wheel is lacquered a second time to seal the layers of power silver which creates a ‘double gloss’. The end result is a highly reflective surface and an enhanced metallic appearance.

As you’d expect, the cost is greater than for a standard wheel finish, and will vary according to the size of the wheels and your distance to the factory – so please call us for a quote. However, we will collect your wheels and refit them afterwards at your home, for your convenience.

Some car owners may choose to refurbish their alloy wheels with a hyper silver or shadow chrome finish simply for the enhanced appearance – perhaps to stay in keeping with the looks of an already high spec car. But most owners opt for this type of finish because it’s important to restore the car to its original condition – for instance if returning a car at the end of a lease. Very often it will be cheaper to have us carry out the refurbishment than pay excess charges by the lease company.
