These days when you detail a car you have no idea what the surface underneath that paint is made out of, until you’ve been in the business a while. For a novice it could be aluminum, steel, stainless-steel, composite, polypropylene, polyethylene or anyone of a number of plastics, mostly made from petroleum byproducts. Yes, that’s right oil. What’s good for Texas is good for America. What’s good for General Motors is good for America (well except when GM becomes Government Motors).
Let’s discuss the repairing of high-tech automotive plastics using special kits. The idea of plastic repair is worthy of the body shop’s consideration, and too, an auto detailing company. It is good for the consumer because it lowers the overall cost of repairs, which means the cash customer coming into a body shop or auto detailing facility can save money and the insured customer that has brought their car to a body shop, will save more money since it costs less to repair than to replace.
Also there could be significant time-savings in that to replace the part may not be possible because the part is not in stock at the dealership, so maybe it needs to come from the distribution center. I cannot tell you have many times the distribution center has been out of a part I’ve needed. And therefore the customer’s car sits there, not been worked on, taking up space, at risk of more damage in the parking lot or being broke into by midnight auto supply or Joe Meth “need a stereo to sell to the fence tonight” local druggie. So, please consider all this.
