Otherwise known as a quarter panel, vehicle body panels are the exterior surface panels between the rear door and the boot. The Goldstar Commercials online store has a variety of different parts available for purchase, however if you need assistance locating the appropriate spare part for your vehicle, please get in touch with our team and we will be happy to help.

Need Your Replacement Parts In a Hurry?

If you need a replacement body panel for your commercial vehicle in a hurry, do not worry. The Goldstar Commercials team can provide next day delivery for commercial vehicle spare parts which are purchased from our online store.

What Is The Role Of A Body Panel?

In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, body panels have a very important role to play. They serve as a barrier to minimise the amount of dirt and dust that come into contact with the vehicle’s engine and wheels.

However, as times have changed and the primary material for building body panels shifted from wood to materials such as aluminium, steel, and plastic, these panels were also designed with crumple zones which help to protect the driver and passengers of the vehicle as the panel absorbs the impact of a collision. They do this by increasing the amount of time that it takes for the vehicle to suffer a change in momentum, similar to bending your legs as you land from a jump.

How Do You Know If A Quarter Panel Will Fit Your Vehicle?

When choosing a replacement panel for your vehicle, it is very important that the replacement part is compatible. The Goldstar Commercials online store stocks a wide range of replacement parts for different vehicles including a selection of different brands such as Renault, Toyota, and Landrover.

Often, aftermarket replacements for parts such as wing panels or quarter panels can be difficult to fit; however if you choose original equipment such as the products that are available from the Goldstar Commercials online store, you can purchase with confidence.

How Do You Install A Body Panel?

If the vehicle is a unibody car, the quarter panels are generally spot welded onto the vehicle. This method of attaching the panels to the vehicle helps to reduce the chance of the metal warping.


Vehicle Replacement Panels For Commercial Vehicle:

Some of the panel parts available on our online store include:

  • Bonnet Panels
    These panels cover the bonnet of the vehicle and are attached in a similar manner to other vehicle body panels. However, this panel is different as it is able to move, providing easy access to the inner workings of the vehicle, such as the internal combustion engine, and provides opportunity to check brake fluid, engine coolant, engine oil, and windscreen washer fluid.

  • Vehicle Wings
    There are usually two wings located on a vehicle, the front wings and the rear wings. The role of the front wing is to redirect the flow of air away from the front tyres in order to reduce drag. With regards to the rear wings, their role is to provide downforce. This downwards thrust enables the car to travel faster through corners by increasing the amount of force on the tyres; which results in better grip.

  • Bumpers
    These bumpers are usually bolted onto the subframe of the vehicle. Whilst it may appear that the bumper is added to a vehicle to protect the passengers in a serious crash, however its main role is actually not to protect the occupants of the vehicle. The bumper’s role is to protect the vehicle itself in the event of low-speed minor crashes or bumps, absorbing the shock from these minor impacts.
