Improving the impact aesthetics is just one of the many benefits that are obtained as a result of repair, however, it is important to note that in all cases after a repair is it possible to see a very faint trace at the point of impact, what is normal, resulting from an optical effect which varies by location, shape and type of breakage.

It is normal that the impact repaired a little more remarkable when viewed from inside the vehicle.
