For a vehicle body that can still be repaired, the automotive body repair technician uses the modern tools at his disposal to restore the structural and sheet metal panels of a vehicle to near-original conditions, using original parts replacement or fabricated locally.  For sectional repairs, a reasonably good match of re-painting can be done, otherwise, the entire body is re painted.  A resume here can benefit from a portfolio of images of restored cars with a before and after view.
