Our Shop Equipment Includes:

Paint System:
DUPONT Superior Paints
Computerized Matching & Mixing System

 Though there are many functions when repairing a vehicle, from frame straightening to part replacement and such, it’s the painting process that is one of the utmost extensive and important. That’s why we at Gifford Auto Body invested in our own Computerized Paint Matching and Mixing system to better serve you, our customer.  

With our mixing machine in place and stocked with Dupont’s Highest Quality Automotive Paints we will be ready to mix your vehicle’s color at anytime. Newly equipped with DuPont ChromaVision®, not only can we use the paint code from your car to obtain the correct match but now we are able to use a specially designed camera (ChromaVision®) to read the paint color on any and every vehicle or item. Once the color is scanned by the camera it is transmitted to ColorNet®, a computerized paint matching system, which compares that reading to the ChromaSystem™ formulas and alternates, then retrieves or creates the color formula needed. With this system in house, color-matching is never a question, it’s as good as done.
(What a great complement to our Guardian Down-Draft Spray Booth with Oven.)

 "DuPont Performance Coatings - Refinish Systems is the largest global manufacturer of coatings for aftermarket car repair. Auto body shops throughout the U.S. depend on DuPont finishes for productivity and the ultimate in color match."

 

   

Guardian Downdraft Spray Booth with Oven
Creating the Highly Desired Baked-On Finish

The Downdraft Spraybooth has two major functions: to provide a clean working environment for paint refinishing, and efficiently remove paint overspray from the booth.

Down-Draft Spray Booths are Booths with a Pit or an elevated Metal Basement. Air is drawn from the upper levels of the shop or from the outside and filtered through a bank of Ceiling Filters down and through the work-area, passing around the vehicle, into the Exhaust Filters on the floor of the Spray Booth. The oven leaves a baked on finish leaving the vehicle looking like it is off the showroom floor.

Tru-Point Collision Frame Measuring System

        

The Tru-Point is a camera-based measuring system that delivers fast diagnostic readings. The portable design, advanced software and ease of use makes it a powerful tool for estimating and light repairs.
 

How the Tru-Point Works

  • The Tru-Point is rolled into place anywhere in the shop.
  • The technician enters the vehicle information, selects the area to be measured.
  • The technician measures all relevant points by probing them in sequence with prompts from the software.
  • The measurement results are then compared to comprehensive manufacturer specifications. Any out-of-spec measurements are identified with color-coded results including deviations and hidden damage is revealed.
  • An easy-to-understand report alerts the technician to problem areas, and pre and post repair documentation can be provided to the insurance company.
  • Estimating accuracy is improved as time required to fix hidden issues is included and backed up with measurement details.

Tru- Point Captures all critical measurement points, including:

- Body Openings - Ball Joints -
 - Roof Lines - Pillars - Wheel Base -
- Suspension - Underbody - 
- Upperbody -

Tru-Point Sonic 360
Award-Winning Ultrasound Technology

  

Tru-Point Sonic 360The Tru-Point Sonic 360, an update to our Shark system,  is a computerized electronic measuring system that relies on ultrasound technology to collect measurements and track repairs. Emitters on probes are attached to the vehicle at specific points and send ultrasonic signals that are received by high-frequency microphones located in the light-weight extruded aluminum beam. The results are compared to manufacturer specs and any problem areas are identified automatically. This leaves the operator free to concentrate on straightening, not on collecting measurements. Providing live "measure-as-you-pull" functionality, the Tru-Point Sonic 360 practically eliminates rework resulting in accurate measurements the first time, every time.
