MECHANICAL, BODY & FRAME REPAIR, PAINT AND DETAIL.
Mechanical: properly diagnose and treat each automobile with the utmost care in order to aid in the quick recovery of your vehicle. Our mechanical technicians are equipped with the diagnostic tools that will help us repair your vehicle with speed and efficiency. Our in house parts department has over 10,000 foreign and domestic NAPA brand parts for almost all vehicles. This allows us to quickly diagnose and install the quality replacement parts that your car needs to run at its full potential. All of these features allow us to provide you with the competitive price and unmatched speed that you deserve.
Body & Frame: Our frame machine can do wonders with those tough and nearly impossible repairs. Lasers are used to mark the exact measurements that your car has, and allows the technician to compare it to the original specifications from the manufacturer. This gives the technician the exact dimensions of the damage and the knowledge of how to repair it. This frame machine can be used to repair automobiles, small & full-sized trucks, vans and limousines. Our MIG welders provide the highest quality and strongest support for each welded piece. The speed of the welders accomplish five times as much work in the same time as the older gas type welders. The Hansen 2300 MIG welder and the Dataliner 2000 MIG welders reach a temperature of about 2000 degrees Celsius for a split second and this is what allows for such a strong weld.
Paint & Detail: We use the most advanced and ecologically friendly systems. We recently changed our painting system in order to decrease chloroflorocarbon emissions into the atmosphere. E & L was and continues to be on the forefront of ecological protection. The new HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) System uses special spray guns and pressure regulators that yield both a factory quality paint job and very low emissions. Another recent and very important advancement is the conversion from oil-based paints to water-based paints. This is also important to the environment. If all body shops did the same, the pollution levels and emissions going into the atmosphere would drop significantly. Our spray booth has the capacity to remove virtually all dust particles in the air due to its reverse flow technology. This allows you to get a clean and beautiful paint job everytime. The spray booth's dimensions are 28 feet long x 20 feet tall x 9 feet wide which is large enough for most vans and limousines.
