1996-2004 Acura 3.5RL Body Repair Manual

Preparation of Work

• Most monocoque bodies are composed as a single unit by welding together pressed parts made of steel plates which come in

a variety of different shapes and sizes. Each part is responsible for displaying a certain strength and durability in order that it

may play its role in meeting the functions of the body as a whole.

Damage to the exterior of the body can be inspected visually, but where there has been an external impact, it is necessary to inspect

the extent of the damage. In some cases, the deformation has spread beyond the actual areas which were in the collision and so

this has to be inspected closely.
