Module 1 – Aluminum Overview - Aluminum and uses on today’s vehicle models. Considerations concerning stampings, extrusions, castings, galvanic corrosion and damage analysis will be discussed. The small group activity will commence during the first module, where the students will make repair procedure decisions on a simulated aluminum-intensive vehicle. Module 2 – Working with Aluminum - Best practices for working with aluminum, and details heating and straightening considerations for the material. Small groups will continue to build their repairs decisions on simulated aluminum-intensive vehicles. Module 3 – Attachment Methods and Processes – Vehicle maker attachment methods, threaded fasteners, and rivets. The module continues as the class discusses hems, clinches, and welding procedures for aluminum. Small student groups within the class will complete their simulated repair decisions and discuss topics from the decisions made throughout the activity. Module 1 - Cosmetic Aluminum Panel Overview - Where aluminum is used and its characteristics. Techniques and certain differences between repairing aluminum and steel are given. Damage considerations, panel straightening, painless dent repair (PDR) straightening techniques, and corrosion protection. Techniques to remove damage such as hammer and dolly use, using heat with aluminum, PDR, weld-on and glue-on dent removal, and preventing corrosion. Module 2 - Attachment Methods – Panel attachment and removal methods including, adhesive bonding, threaded fasteners, bolted-on parts, and rivet types and use. Preparation and application, including rivet bonding, hem flange removal, hemmed door skin replacement, welded exterior panel removal, and joint preparation. Aluminum welding considerations such as welding tears and dressing the weld. Module 3 – Surface Preparation and Refinishing - Prepping the surface for body filler, types of body fillers, primers, and refinishing aluminum parts.
