Truthfully any collision repair technician can take a car apart, the hard part is putting it back together correctly. Panels should line up and wiring should be properly restored. Consider how many safety features and electronics are in newer model vehicles. Advanced technology means Chevy auto body repair technicians need advanced training.
Airpark Collision Center, your Chevy auto body repair shop is industry I-Car Certified. Each year we pass a series of inspections, tests and present credentials to prove that we can restore vehicles back to original condition.
Computerized Frame Machine
Our collision repair shop is equipped with modern, up to date equipment such as scanners, various welders, and a computerized frame machine. Many auto body repair facilities cannot afford or choose not to purchase the right equipment. At Airpark Collision Center our technicians enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the frame machine’s computer and using the data provided pull the unibody/frame into place within millimeters of factory specifications.
Factory Paint Job
Our European brand paint booth was recently purchased and has a history of producing high quality finishes. The paint booth bakes on the paint and blows the air downward, allowing for a dust free finish. Over the years we have gained a reputation for repairing high end vehicles, because of our attention to detail. Our philosophy, has always been to treat each vehicle with the same level of care regardless of brand.
Premium Products are Key
Modern equipment is necessary on today’s vehicles, but it goes hand in hand with quality products. We know there are less expensive materials on the market, but we believe quality products make the difference. For example, 3M masking tape allows us to mask properly and results in sharp lines and clean edges. After masking off a vehicle with high grade tape, we spray PPG water based paint. PPG is used in almost every manufacturing plant. We use their water based product because it is environmentally safe and allows for very accurate color matching.
