Aluminum and Frame Damage
Below the outside panels of your vehicle, there is a structural support system called the frame of your car. It is designed to protect the occupants of the vehicle in case of a collision and it is the structure of what your car is built on. Frame damage is when the integrity of your frame has been compromised which means there may be damage to the parts of the vehicle that provide structural support. Here at C&D Auto Body, we are here to assist you in the repair of your vehicle’s damages.

Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process where steel comes into contact with aluminum. When using tools that are used for steel repairs on an aluminum panel it will immediately start the corrosion process. This occurrence happens when the aluminum tools come into contact with steel panels. Even when steel dust or aluminum dust would come into contact with each other, galvanic corrosion would take place. That is why it is very critical for a repair facility to be adequately certified in repairs, have designated tools, and a separated and closed off room or facility.
