Blueprint

The blueprint process is absolutely crucial to the repair; because of this, every repair starts the exact same way. First the vehicle is washed, then all damage on the car, whether from the current accident or a pre-existing incident is identified and noted.

Next, we remove all parts necessary for the repair. While disassembling the car, our techs take care to note and document any additional damage that is discovered. This allows us to ensure that all damage related to the accident is covered by your insurance company.

Body Repair

Body repair

After your vehicle is blueprinted, it moves to the body repair area of the shop. Here any structural damage is addressed first, followed by any cosmetic work necessary.

Suspension Repair

Any suspension damage is addressed after the structure of the car is repaired. This way our suspension techs can utilize our computerized alignment rack to verify that both the structure and suspension are aligned correctly.

Painting

Painting

During the body repair, our painters find that exact color match for your car using our state of the art computerized paint system. Once the body work is complete we apply a fresh coat of paint, then “bake” the car in our paint booth to speed up the curing process.

Re-Assemble

Once the fresh paint has properly dried, your car moves to the body shop again where the reassembly takes place. Old damaged parts that came off the car are replaced with new parts that have undergone our quality control checks.
