German term or phrase: beilackieren
Bei der Beseitigung kleiner Lackschäden mit herkömmlichen Methoden fallen aus Kundensicht oft unverhältnismäßig
hohe Kosten an. Das Lackieren ganzer Teile sowie das ***Beilackieren*** der angrenzenden Bereiche zwecks
Farbtonangleichung kostet viel Zeit und Geld.
Die meisten Kleinschäden werden deshalb aus Kostengründen nicht instandgesetzt.
