Why Select a Cadillac Aluminum Network Approved Repair Center?
Shops have access to General Motors specific repair procedures for this model. To be part of the Cadillac Collision Repair Aluminum Network Tony’s Body Shop has to have an annual audit to qualify. Tony’s Body Shop, also being Tesla certified, it only made sense that it could also qualify for this program and be able to help the CT6 Cadillac customer. Please take a look at our unique aluminum room where this vehicle gets repaired. Tony’s Body Shop has a 3 bay fully enclosed, positive pressure, filtered aluminum room. Most collision shops have a simple set of plastic curtains they call their aluminum room, in an effort to keep out other metals while the car is being worked on. Aluminum repairs have to be kept separate from other metal repairs for the metal shavings can contaminate a repair and cause future paint or repair failures. As part of the program, only genuine General Motors Cadillac parts are being used. Cadillac customer care as well as the OnStar program will help CT6 Cadillac owners find the nearest certified collision center, Tony’s Body Shop is one of those centers, hopefully we can help you if the need arises.
