Automotive body and related repairers
Description: Automotive body repairers fix cars and trucks damaged in accidents. They straighten bent bodies, hammer out dents, and replace parts that can't be fixed. Their supervisors usually decide which parts to fix, which ones to replace, and how long the job should take. In large shops, some repairers specialize in one type of repair, such as installing glass or repairing doors.
