Cosmetic car body repairs made easy
Does your prized vehicle need some cosmetic attention?
Cosmetic damage is a term used to describe non-structural damage to a vehicle, typically acquired with a minor bump into an obstruction or scrape along a wall, but which does not affect the vehicle's driveability.
Kraftwork Vehicle Refinishing offer a range of cosmetic car body repair services to get your vehicle back to a fabulously shining condition in no time.
We are more than happy to replace bumpers and panels but why replace when you can repair?
Using many different techniques, we are specialists in the repairing of panels saving you insurance claims and expensive parts.
Hot staple repairs
This technique melts a metal staple in the plastic which holds the two sides together. We then bond over the top of plastic weld to finish.
This technique heats the two side of the crack melting them back together while applying a strong plastic filler.
Using different grades of polish and a machine we can reduce or remove scratches and faded paintwork.
Plastic bonder glues
This technique uses very strong high quality plastic bonders and metal mesh to glue parts back together. We can also put threads back in plastic by putting the bonder around a bolt covered in grease. Once the bonder has cured we remove the bolt leaving a thread.

Car body repairs for minor damage
Don't risk losing your insurance no claims bonus on a repair that could cost less than your insurance excess.
Contact Kraftwork Vehicle Refinishing for a midi repair.
A midi repair is a car body repair which is slightly too big for a smart repair and slightly too small for an insurance repair claim. It can be relatively quick to do and doesn't require replacement panels - saving you both money and time not having to fill out insurance claim forms!
Many bodyshops are only set up for insurance crash repairs meaning small midi repairs being charged as expensive crash repairs via insurance claims; bringing with it a heap of paperwork.
That's where we come in. Kraftwork Vehicle Refinishing is a small independent car body repair shop who have teamed up with New Again to offer a hassle free process so that these repairs stay small, cheaper and save you any insurance claims or excess.
There are two options for midi repairs:
Take the vehicle to New Again, Chelmsford where they will check the damage and provide free, no-obligation advice on the best route to repair. We can collect and return the vehicle to them - subject to handling charges.
Bring the vehicle straight to us having checked that the damage cannot be repaired via the smart repair technique first.
