Aluminum and Steele…Two Important Components in our Industry.

Here at The Don Embry Body shop we have evolved with the times for sixty years. That includes the use of aluminum panels and components in vehicles. Auto manufacturers adopted this practice to combat heavy steel parts in the various makes and models. This helps vehicles test for specific emissions classes. It makes them eco-friendlier, with better gas mileage.

We know that aluminum auto body repair is a bit trickier than steel repair. There are many factors that figure into this, but maintaining cleanliness in the repair is the most challenging part. It is a fact that when steel gets embedded into the aluminum, it corrodes, causing potentially irreparable damage.

The Don Embry Body Shop has stayed one of Louisville’s top choices for auto body work for six decades by learning and growing. See how we handle everything from auto body painting to damaged bumpers at Call for an appointment at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville (502) 935-1373.
