Solving the Collision Repair Information Puzzle
If you are in the auto collision repair business, you know how difficult it can be to find information you can trust. Is that the correct place to section? How many welds are necessary? Is there a more efficient detrimming procedure?

For years, auto collision repair professionals have relied on a patchwork of information:

  • Advice From Friends at Other Shops
  • Calls to Dealers
  • Internet Forums
  • Paper Repair Manuals
  • and Most Commonly... "Best Guesses."
