One lucky winner will win over $10,000 of tools and equipment needed to perform aluminum repair
For the fourth consecutive year, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has orchestrated the opportunity for SEMA Show attendees to win remarkable prizes from the association. This year’s prizes have been provided exclusively by Car-O-Liner, and feature the newly launched Aluminum Workstation (MSRP $10,049) and QP-1 Steel Dent Puller (MSRP $994). The drawing will be held from the SCRS booth (North Hall #10849) at 12:00pm on Friday, November 7th.
To be entered into the drawing, attendees who visit the SCRS booth will be provided with a report card that features the locations of companies which have generously supported the SCRS Repairer Driven Education series at the SEMA Show. Attendees who visit each sponsor listed and ask about their products and services will receive a stamp on the card from the company. Once a stamp from each sponsor company has been collected, the completed card can be returned to the SCRS booth to be entered into the drawing. All cards must be returned by 11:59am on Friday, November 7th to be eligible.
“New vehicle advancements have captivated the industry’s attention regarding the investments in training and equipment necessary to enter into aluminum repair,” states SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. “We have had such great success in past years by putting great quality prizes into our attendee businesses, and this year it was really important to everyone involved that the prize packages be aimed at opening up opportunities that connect with our education programs and the focus of that industry discussion. Car-O-Liner really shared our vision, and provided us with some amazing, highly sought after products to help some very lucky attendees equip their business!”
Car-O-Liner’s mobile Aluminum Workstation is included in the Ford F-150 Collision Repair Program and comes complete with tools and equipment to repair aluminum damage. Separation is critical with aluminum to avoid galvanic corrosion and the workstation provides dedicated tool storage to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination with steel particles, and a built-in work area to work efficiently in one location. The state-of-the-art dent pulling bars are constructed of ultra-light carbon fiber, making them lighter, easier to work with and three times stronger than steel! The workstation is accompanied by an industry-leading lifetime guarantee from Car-O-Liner and will include:
- Mobile cart with shelving, tool board & work area
- Aluminum Spotter, 220V
- Carbon Fiber Pull Bar Dent Pulling System with 6 Jaws
- Hand Puller
- Four Professional Grade Aluminum Hammers
- Heat Gun
- Heat Barrier Cool Gel
- Digital Pyrometer
- 4 mm studs
- Threaded pull washers
The Car-O-Liner QP-1 Dent Puller is a high-performance tool that pulls out dents on steel body panels. It is a portable spotter that offers a high-frequency inverter for rapid welding and pulling. It contains a built-in ground rod with automatic contact which requires minimal paint removal (as small as 20mm in diameter.)
Repair businesses who are interested in winning these tools should come to SCRS’ booth #10849. SCRS would also like to encourage attendees to register for SCRS’ Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series and the OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit being held on Wednesday at the SEMA Show. Both programs will focus on delivering information to your business relative to maintaining pace with the rapid advancement of vehicle technology, to solution-oriented ways to address other marketplace challenges.
