    Default Aluminium bodywork repair???

    Some [censored!!!!!] has put a lovely nice long scratch on the rear wing of the girlfriends XK.

    As it's aluminium, it's made a bit of a small gouge in the scratch. Does anyone know if the mobile people can repair this, or does it need a proper job?

    WTF can't people drive and if they can't WTF are they not honest.

    Grrrrr!

    Proper job, it will need dollying out and maybe a bit of heat as well depending on how stretched the metal is.

    Balls! Don't get me wrong though, it hasn't actually dented the panel, but the scratch is quite prominent.

    the main thing that alters is the primer.. rather than 'any old primer' ally requires an acid etching basecoat before the normal primer to get the paint to adhere properly...it will fill and dress out the same as steel panels but it will work harden quicker.
