In the manufacturing process of a vehicle, the first to intervene are the designers who create it; later, it is assembled by joining together preformed panels, along with other components and accessories, resulting in the final vehicle. The panels are still essentially made of steel, but fibreglass and aluminium are progressively being introduced, as they are lighter materials that are more resistant to wear-induced corrosion.
Contrary to popular belief, the external panels of the vehicle must not be excessively thick, so that they deform and absorb impacts in the event of an accident, avoiding as far as possible injury to passengers. Bumpers are protective, but also decorative, elements which are usually very integrated, follow the shape of the bodywork and are of the same colour as the rest of the vehicle.
The wingmirrors enable the driver’s lateral vision, but also have evolved in terms of integration into the bodywork and of technical improvements, such as specific antireflective glass, electric adjustment, heated wingmirrors, etc.
Like their names suggest, decorative and protective bodywork trims are used to improve external appearance and to protect the most exposed areas of the vehicle from friction. These elements are known as mouldings.
We have original spare parts such as panels, mouldings, grilles, bumpers, mirrors, number plates and electric windows by the best manufacturers.
