RAM 1500 Panel replacement
What's involved in replacing a panel on my RAM 1500?
Panel replacement involves replacing certain panels on your RAM 1500, due to them being damaged beyond repair. In other circumstances, panels can be replaced to change the look of your car or increase the performance of your car by fitting panels that are lighter in weight.
If you think you might need a panel replacement on your RAM 1500, be sure to see a panel repair expert to get a second opinion. They’ll be able to quickly inform you of your options, and if your RAM 1500 does end up needing to have a panel replacement, they will also be able to easily source the appropriate one.
Replacing a panel is generally pretty straightforward but can vary depending on whether you get a second hand one or a brand new replacement.
If you get a secondhand one the same colour as your RAM 1500, it should just be a simple process of removing the damaged panel and installing the replacement. If you get a brand new panel, it might not have paint on it at all so you’ll need to get it painted and colour matched to the rest of your RAM 1500. Depending on how old it is, your RAM 1500 most likely has slightly faded paint, so keep in mind that it’ll be extremely hard to exactly match the paint up.
The new panel will most likely be painted before it’s installed on your RAM 1500, and then once it’s on some additional paint correction and paint matching will take place.
Any smash repair business will be able to help you out with a panel replacement. They can assess the damage and depending on your budget, will be able to suggest the most appropriate course of action to get your RAM 1500 looking as good as new.
