Teslas are the future car, and they are such a fun car to drive and repair. Electric vehicles are becoming more and more prevalent. They are not like repairing any other vehicle. The Tesla is made of an all-aluminum body, and this makes it very difficult to repair.
Aluminum is eight times harder to move than steel, which is a typical metal used in manufacturing. Only the most skilled technicians can work on Teslas because of the difficulties of repairs. We here at Texarcana Dent Repair have years of experience and a lot of experience working on this specific brand of cars.
Unlike steel, which remembers its original position, aluminum does not. It needs to be reformed, which can take more time, patience, and skill. To repair and pull the damaged area, the panel must be heated to 400°F to allow the metal to soften. Aluminum dissipates heat very quickly but can become permanently changed if heated past a certain point, and that point is approximately 750°F. It’s a fine line of heat, pushing and ensuring that the metal is in the perfect condition to repair.
We are IMI certified to repair these cars, and what does that mean. To repair an electric vehicle, we have to power down the cater to ensure that we do not combust, start a fire, or damage the Tesla. The battery system moves through that car, and we do not want to cut or damage any system that controls the entire vehicle. We power the vehicle down for the safety of you, the tech, and your vehicle.
We work on all Tesla makes and models, including the Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model X, and the Tesla Model S.
Paintless dent repair on your Tesla can usually be finished on the same day as you drop it off, and in some cases, with minor repairs, it can be done while you wait in a few hours. We love repairing these cars! It is such a fun brand.
