Quality Collision Repair and Professional Service... Guaranteed!

Our Facility
We feel it is very important to keep up with the changing technology and are constantly upgrading and adding new equipment to provide the best repair possible. Here is some description as to what your vehicle’s visit to Brennan’s involves:
Estimate
The estimation process begins in our office where you will be greeted and assisted. One of our knowledgeable estimators will look at the vehicle with you to obtain details of the damage. A computerized analysis is then generated using either the Mitchell or Audatex Automated Estimation System. Being linked with several insurance companies direct repair programs means that we can send photos, along with an estimate, directly to the insurance adjuster via internet for immediate approval.
Diagnostic Scan
With Astech diagnostic scan equipment we have the ability to diagnose potential problems and damage to your vehicles computer modules that operate everything form the cooling fans, to the airbag system, automatic braking systems, and adaptive cruise modules. If any of these systems are repaired, replaced or even unplugged they may require reprogramming and or recalibration. The Astech is a remote portal device that is plugged into your vehicles OBD2 diagnostic port and then the scan is performed by master technicians in a Texas facility using OEM scanning equipment. This allows us to have the most specific technology utilized for your specific make and model and to recalibrate all modules that have been affected.
Build Down
Once the repair has been approved, scheduled and arrives on the day of repair it goes through a preliminary cleaning and a quality control check point. At this stage we test and document the operation of the functions of the vehicle (all power options, cameras, parking sensors etc.). It then enters the build down department where we perform a pre repair diagnostic scan, and then dismantle the damaged area and make additions, deletions or changes to the original estimate. All missing and or damaged parts, bolts, light bulbs, are accounted for at this point allowing us to now have a thorough repair plan in place eliminating delays at the end of the repair. All additional and progress photos are taken and the estimate may be re uploaded to the insurance company for review if required.
Body Repair
In the body repair department panels are either repaired or replaced depending on the severity of damage. Any damaged mechanical or electrical components are installed and tested. Using our Pro Spot resistance welding equipment, we can duplicate the same looking structurally sound welds that are created during the manufacturing of your car. Vehicles that require mechanical repairs are sublet to one of our preferred mechanical facilities.
Aluminum
We are equipped and ready to do full scale repairs on all aluminum vehicles including the popular F series Ford trucks, and soon to be GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. Utilizing an industry specific PROSPOT PR-5 self-piercing riveter, we can duplicate the factory joining techniques used in the production of the vehicle. An SPR rivet is made from a super high strength boron metal and creates a strong bond as it is used with a structural panel bonding adhesive. Minor dents are now repairable on aluminum as well using our PRO SPOT AL -5. This machine micro welds an aluminum stud to the dented area and gives us the ability to pull the dent out. The last piece to our aluminum solution is our PROSPOT SP-1 Synergic pulse welder. This machine is preloaded with specific synergic curves required for strong, clean aluminum welds.
Frame
Using our Chief frame repair and Chief velocity measuring equipment we have access to factory measurements on numerous, specific points on a full framed truck and unibody framed car. The preliminary laser measurement obtains data that shows exactly where and if any damage is. Once pulls and or repairs/replacements of components are completed, the final laser measurement and printout ensure the vehicle is dimensionally correct.
Prep Station
Vehicles are now moved to one of the 2 GFS (Global Finishing Systems) prep stations where dust and pollutants are controlled by a wall of dust extraction filters for sanding operations and a venting system to remove primer fumes and overspray.
Paint Department
In the paint dept. the vehicle is masked in preparation for the final painting process. Our GFS down draft paint booth can deliver a flawless finish by ensuring a perfect painting environment that has correct flow around the vehicle. Our booth is equipped with a bake cycle to assist in drying and curing the paint to a factory finish. Using our Sikken’s paint system, we have access to a database of thousands of factory color codes, and the equipment and technology necessary to ensure factory match and shine.
Reassembly
The vehicle moves from paint into our reassembly department where the remainder of new and or removed components are installed and the fit of all panels are verified and adjusted. Headlights are aimed, all fluids are checked, vehicle is test driven and then fluids are re-checked. Our team assembles for a final quality control review where all hands are involved and everyone is required to examine the repair for any defects. Once the repair has been accepted by the team the vehicle will move on to the detail department.
Wash Bay
When all repairs are completed the vehicle is returned to the detail/wash bay where it is thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Your vehicle will then be parked in front of the office ready for same day pick up or parked in our locked compound for storage.
Paintless Dent Repair
Not all damage requires body repair and paint refinishing. Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) may be the best solution if your vehicle has dents, dings or hail damage that are not close to body lines and have not cracked the paint finish. For this process we call in the professionals at Dent Force to provide a cost effective solution to repairing your vehicle. PDR uses specialized tools and techniques to manipulate metal back to its original shape and condition. Typically, repairs take less time, cost less than traditional methods, do not affect the factory finish and are an environmentally friendly option for repairs.
