A car or vehicle’s bodywork is crucial to its protection and to keeping all its crucial parts and facets within! Bodywork applies to the outer shell of a car which, for example, will help to keep engines and chassis in place.
Your vehicle bodywork is made from a variety of material, such as aluminium, which is resistant against corrosion, and which is extremely lightweight. Some manufacturers prefer using steel to save money, or fibreglass. However, fibreglass can be expensive to repair. You may also find plastic used in some bodywork areas to create unique looks.
Bodywork damage can be very common. Rust and corrosion, for example, can occur in your wheel arches, and this is normally very easy to repair. This may need you to sand down the rust and to fill in holes.
Your bodywork can also receive damage from collisions. You may find that your bodywork can dent. While you can fix these at home, you should always consult a service centre or repair shop.

What is the Bonnet?
The vehicle’s bonnet is where you will normally find the engine, but this isn’t always the case. Your bonnet will normally be made from a mix of metals and opens outwards. It is normally aerodynamic and streamlined with your car. You can normally open it with a latch and hold it in place with a stay rod.
A bonnet can be easily customised with ornaments, and it is a crucial place where wiper and washer jets are stored. However, it is susceptible to scratching due to flying debris. It may also stick and struggle to open. In some cases, you may need to replace a bonnet altogether, as it is a very sensitive part.

What is the Boot?
The boot of a car is normally found at the rear. This is where you will be able to store items and cargo. The way your boot opens, and where you will find it, can vary. It is traditionally watertight, with electric lighting to illuminate.
Boots, too, are susceptible to damage on the go. You may need to replace hinges, seals, cables and washers and wipers over time. Boots can also be at risk of breaking and entering. Once again, it is always worth approaching a repair shop if your boot is damaged or faulty.
