” “Measured at around 40 feet across and 25 to 30 feet deep, the sinkhole swallowed eight rare Chevrolet Corvettes in a matter of minutes. Grief-stricken museum employees were forced to move the other 20 cars out of the Skydome building to safer ground and engineers are currently assessing what to do next.
General Motors has already made it clear that it plans to help, announcing Thursday that it will oversee the restoration of all Corvettes damaged. Not only did GM own two of the cars damaged in the sinkhole collapse, but it also donated several of the other Corvettes affected, including one of the jewels of the collection: the 1-millionth Corvette ever built.””
“Another reminder that many car owners should know is keeping the car in shape through regular tune up and maintenance. No matter how responsible a driver is on the road, a car in poor condition is just as likely to cause an accident as a reckless driver.
Being a responsible driver and keeping the car in good shape through regular maintenance do not totally eliminate accidents. After all, there are various other factors that may cause road mishaps. For this reason, there are reliable Playa del Rey auto body shops like Jim & Jack’s Collision Center that can successfully restore most vehicles to their brand new condition.”
” “If you find yourself in a position where you have to decide whether or not to make a repair, have the general condition of the car checked. Most shops will charge a nominal fee for this, but it is well worth it before you commit yourself to a decision you may regret later.”

They also have a way to determine which businesses in the state fall short of standards, and can therefore be able to address these accordingly. They also encourage vehicle owners to be more conscious about the condition of their cars.
“To the untrained eye, it can be hard to tell if a repair was done correctly and whether or not the vehicle’s safety has been compromised,” Bureau Chief Patrick Dorais was quoted as saying by The Lake County News. “This program is very easy to participate in and provides consumers with peace of mind about any auto body repairs they may have had performed.””
“An Inglewood auto body shop can repair the various damages caused by a pothole, which can range from relatively simple dents on tire rims, to more complicated suspension problems. A thorough inspection may be necessary to check if the front end of the vehicle has suffered physical damages as well.
If the AAA’s prediction holds true, many such inspections and repairs will be carried out this year.”
“Before service teams reach this point, you must have agreed with them on the type of paint and application method to be used. Remember: It’s not enough to find professionals who can match the factory color of your vehicle. They will also have to apply new paint in accordance with factory procedures. After all, paint is not just a cosmetic addition to a car. It is actually its first layer of protection against whatever could damage its body.
Choose a certified auto body shop in Hawthorne or Hermosa Beach and you can rest assured that the service team will complete all these steps while adhering to industry standards—and ultimately meeting your expectations.”
