Panel beaters are specially trained smash repairers who utilise specific tools for ‘panel beating’, which is a process used to repair metal, plastic, and fibreglass bodywork panels on cars, vans, bikes, trucks and sometimes even boats. Panel beating is used to smash repair car or vehicle panels back to their original condition after they have been damaged.
