Automotive Collision Center

The Kirkwood Auto Collision Center repairs vehicles after accidents. With its state-of-the-art laser frame measuring system, auto collision students can properly rebuild a vehicle after a major crash. Students mix their own paint to best match the existing color of the vehicle, then finish the job in one of six paint booths.
