Repair histories that we often hear

The repair history means the automobile frame was damaged by a traffic accident and other disaster or the repair was performed on it and the value of the car is highly likely to decrease.

What is the skeleton?

If we use the word for human body, it is a bone. The car repair history means the same as the condition that the bone was broken, cracked, treated and healed completely.
The condition of the frame is stated as damaged (No repair is performed.), repaired ( There are traces of the repair to the damaged parts) and exchange ( There are traces of exchanging the damaged parts.)
