Successful collision repair businesses understand that profitable repairs stem from a well-conceived repair plan that accounts for both the necessary tasks and a thorough accounting of the costs associated with performing them. Because of this, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has maintained an emphasis on seminars that focus on damage analysis and cost assessment during the upcoming Repairer Driven Education series at the 2013 SEMA Show. The four day show opens November 5th, and is held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Good estimates can't be formulated without in depth knowledge of required operations and the technology that drives them," shared SCRS Vice Chairman Andy Dingman. "Understanding the physical requirements of the repair process and what the manufacturers expect that process to look like is probably the most critical foundation for success in writing accurate repair plans."
Truck bumpers come alive with BumperShellz - Durable, customizable protective covers feature backlighting to promote your message
NEWCASTLE, Calif. – Every day, pickup truck bumpers take a beating as they are exposed to all types of wear and tear from weather, rocks, road salt and the like. Now, ecoological, a California-based company devoted to creating simple, functional and environmentally responsible solutions to common automotive problems, has developed a durable cover that not only protects the bumper, but can be customized and backlit with any color or design desired.
BumperShellz™ consist of a cover made from a recycled thermoplastic that is formed to fit over the exposed steel truck bumper like a protective shell. The shells are wrapped with a high quality, decorative film and can be easily installed over the existing bumper. The cover allows the truck owner to create a customized look for his or her bumper, with the customer’s choice of carbon fiber, camouflage, black out, or many other colors and patterns.
POMONA, Calif. – Prolong® Super Lubricants announces its popular Super Protectant has been updated to deliver an even more beautiful and protected interior and exterior.
The Super Protectant is an advanced instant detailer that is safe for leather, rubber and vinyl surfaces that beautifies and protects it from cracking in hot or cold weather conditions. During regular preparation and maintenance routines, simply spray the product on the chosen surface and easily wipe away with a terry cloth towel.
The enhanced Super Protectant formula is water-resistant so it won't wash off like regular protectants. It blocks out the elements for a more durable shine and longer lasting protection. And is unique in that you can “dial” the shine up or down, depending on how much you wipe.
