Body Repairs & Repainting

Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 - Diagnostics & Repairs

Repairing the body of vehicles in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 is the easiest job in the game. The only catch can be if you have to repaint it. For that you need to have purchased the Paint Shop for your garage. This is also a great opportunity to stock up on spare parts for the future.

Repairing The Body

Finding the damaged body parts can actually be a little difficult with a simple visual inspection. Some vehicles are in great shape, and the problem is that they are slightly less than perfect. The up side here is that when it's a body job, all of the parts will be listed. So just check the work order under body, and you'll see the complete list of parts to be replaced.

A tip here would be to replace the parts. Don't bother with repairing them. This will add spare body parts to your inventory. You can then repair these later, preferably with your skill at 90%. Then you will have a nice little horde of spare body parts for buying cars at auction and rebuilding them.

Here we can clearly see significant damage to the front bumper of this car in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015.

Because of the color of the car, and the fact that the damage is only moderate, it is hard to see that this door is actually damaged in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015.

The damage to the rear bumper on this car is clear visible in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015, though the damage to the left tail light is harder to see.

Repainting the Vehicle

This is as easy as moving the car to the Paint Shop and selecting to paint the car. When you put any vehicle in the paint shop the color is automatically set to the correct factory color. Just send the car to the paint shop, paint it, then retun to the garage. Paint job done.

Keep in mind that if you have purchased a car from Auction and are rebuilding it for sale, painting it is a waste of $500. That's right. For some reason a shiny new paint job will do nothing for the sale value. The only thing that matters in this case is that the body be at 100%.

When you put a car in the Paint Shop in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 the proper factory color is automatically selected. This makes repainting cars very easy.
