Performing extensive body work on aluminum is a necessity, however the cost of entry is high. Body shops must make a large investment in aluminum specific structural repair equipment. In addition, technical knowledge plays a critical role. FLC is already equipped to handle aluminum repairs. FLC has made the investment in the highest quality equipment and has the technical knowledge and master certifications to prove it.
