Chief frame rack machines are giant straight edges that won’t bend or flex under pulling forces, which is important when you are trying to bring a damaged vehicle back into factory specifications. We can put tremendous amounts of force against a vehicle once it is secured.
Detecting Misalignment in a Vehicle’s Structure -Whether detecting misalignment in a vehicle’s structure, or verifying repairs have eliminated the damage, the Vector computerized measuring system is an excellent tool. Vector integrates the precision of laser scanning with a computerized data base for unmatched accuracy in collision repair and analysis. In addition to showing extent of collision damage, Vector monitors progress throughout the repair and verifies the vehicle’s structure is correctly aligned. Three separate reports verify the vehicle’s structural condition by showing overhead diagrams that display center line, datum line and datum height measurements. This offers indisputable evidence that the repairs made were not only needed…but returned the vehicle frame to its pre-collision condition.
The system’s electronic body scanner houses Laser Lights that reflect off of revolving mirrors toward light-reflective Targets (each bearing a unique code) that are suspended from a vehicle’s reference points. The Body Scanner houses photo sensors that identify the angle of revolving laser reflections. This information is transferred to the computer which performs the triangulation.
Paint Booth- Nova Verta USA, located in Spokane, Washington, is the leading supplier of top performance automotive and industrial spray paint booths, prep stations and closed top open face paint booths. The last ten years has brought tremendous change and improvement in Nova Verta’s paint booth technology and performance. Nova Verta’s products have been designed to be user friendly for the technicians and owners who purchase and operate the equipment while maintaining the ability to adjust to continued paint product changes.
Nova Verta leads the industry incorporating Total Control Technology. This technology features self-diagnostics, automated pressure control using variable frequency drive (VFD standard on all models); eliminating pressure control dampers. The Total Control System incorporates better control of paint booth pressure and airflow, and it provides maintenance reminders, ensuring longevity of the paint booth equipment. Additionally, a complete maintenance log can be viewed from the convenience of the operator station.
The Total Control Technology conserves energy, lowering consumption by as much as 40% over typical booth control systems. Equipment updates are also made easier, through the use of an e-prom chip and/or PCMI card.

Paintless Dent Repair
When your vehicle has a small dent, door ding, or hail damage, there is another way to get your car back into shape without going through the ordeal of laying your car up at the body shop. Paintless dent repair can work on a variety of auto damage such as small dents, dings and creases, costing you a fraction of the price of body work and getting your vehicle back on the road usually in the same day. Dabler Auto Body offers the latest in paintless dent repair technology, so you know that you are getting quality care from pros who do it right the first time.
Here’s how paintless dent repair works: one of our world-class technicians will first provide a free estimate, assessing the damage and determining if it can be effectively repaired through paintless dent removal, or PDR. 80-90% of all dents are able to be fixed through paintless dent repair. The dent will be prepared for repair once the technician has thoroughly examined the damage.
The ASE certified technicians at Dabler Auto Body will use special tools to get a better look at the dent and apply slow pressure to the dent from the inside, pushing it back out to restore the exterior to its original position. The technician may remove trim pieces or inner panels to get to the dent, depending on the location of the damage. A special light board is used to see the shadows that are created by the dent, helping the technician to accurately push out the dent and create a smooth exterior. As the technician works, the dent will become smaller and smaller until it blends into the paint’s texture and virtually disappears. The entire process can usually be completed in just a few hours or less, depending on the extent of the damage.
With paintless dent repair, the possibility of incorrect paint color matching is eliminated, since the PDR technique allows your vehicle to retain its factory-original paint job. Vehicles with original paint retain a higher value than vehicles that have been repainted. Keep the original paint on your car and get your car back to its original appearance with paintless dent repair.
