Even the burners are built in house and tested before shipping.

We went with the Master series booth with a 3 sided mixing room attached to the side. This will allow the painter to mix paint and step right into the booth avoiding contamination.

We paired our frame jig with a digital measuring system.

The contact evolution from Carbench allows us to measure pre and post accident chassis data to make sure its brought back to factory tolerances. What I really liked about it was the 5 axis travel to measure difficult to reach areas. This will guarantee maximum precision and extremely low tolerances on every single check point of the frame and body.

I had a hard time deciding on what welding system to go with. I narrowed it down to Cebora and Weilander and Schill based off there OEM approvals. Both companies had booths at SEMA show in vegas so I figured it would be a good place to try them out in person. With more cars switching over from traditional steel to High strength steel, aluminum, Boron, etc I wanted a welder that was modern and easy to use. In a production shop having an easy to use system that consistently produces factory production assembly line quality welds is very important. We ended up going with a Cebora Techna smart plus resistance spot welder. It can recognize what material and thickness is being used and self adjust giving you a perfect weld. For mig welding we picked the Cebora Jaquar welder that can do steel and aluminum. Both are OEM approved by Ferrari, Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, and Bentley to name a few.

My dad running new airlines in the shop. He's a retired contractor who loves working with his hands, we barter construction labor for mechanical work. Give him an import beer and he can go all day with stories of the old country.
