This time around we received a Ford Laser 81′ belongs to Aris which is having a minor front head collision. Based on his story, it was a person in front of him whom braking all of sudden causing his beloved Ford got a nose injury.
At first, he thought that the car can be drive to the nearest workshop for a repair, turn out that the accident has claimed his radiator and the air-cond cooling fin. No luck for him and need a tow truck for help. A dented Ford Laser 81′ need a further checking at Pomen Yala. Called up Eddy for the flat-bed tow to come and pickup.
Further investigation, we found out that the front chassis are having quiet bad damage and need to be re-aligned back again to it’s standard alignment. Speaking of a ‘chasis alignment’, you can read the rest of the process here.
Luck for him, the accident didn’t caused the battery to short circuit with the metal hood. That would be a disaster and might start a burning flame to the car.
Seeing from the collision damage, the parts need to be replace are the bumper, a pair of head light frame assembly together with the signal lamps, air-cond fin, radiator, radiator fan, air-cond fan, and the rest are the body works need to be carry out onto the front lower valance front main frame, hood, and firewall hood locking mechanism.
With help by Faiz Dinie a.k.a Ustadd, we started the process of dismantling the damage part. The objective here is to change the damage radiator to a new one. Before we can achieve that, the damage part need to be throw away and make room for a new radiator to be fit in.
Received the brand new Ford Laser 81′ Radiator from nearby spare part shop that cost us RM480. Try-fitted it but with no avail since the front frame still dented. This is a call for a Pomen Yala minor body work.
Thats all for Pomen Yala. Next step is to sent the car for the real body work.
