Our well-developed repair plan finds and identifies any structural damage that would otherwise be missed. Today's vehicles use high strength materials and the damage load path is often projected throughout the frame of the vehicle. For example, when a vehicle is struck in the front, rear or side, the damage is often projected around the passenger compartment instead of through it. This internal damage can only be found through measurements and a detailed inspection.
Technicians in our West Hollywood body shop create a blueprint plan using a computerized program to analyze the damage. The overall structure of the vehicle is inspected. The load paths throughout the vehicle are analyzed, because the hood, doors and fender will not fit correctly, if the lower structure is out of line.
Older vehicles may show immediate damage to a frame following an accident. The door may drop and drag on the ground following a front-end hit. Following a front-end hit on your newer vehicle, the door may open and close properly, but the unseen damage travels differently. The vehicle must be completely inspected and properly measured.
Measurements will be displayed in your blueprint. A 3 mm misalignment cannot be seen with the naked eye, but we can catch it with our measurement system. Our certified West Hollywood technicians use their measurements to determine any misalignments that exist. Our trained estimators work with our technicians to correctly interpret the electronic printout of the vehicle's measurements.
