  • Purpose: To reverse the inertia that came into the body from the collision.
  • Purpose: To re-install the panels properly and to ensure that the vehicle holds the road in true alignment.

BlackHawk/Shark - Frame Measuring

  • What it is: A computerized electronic measuring system for productivity improvements and the industry's best speed and accuracy.
