L.C. Auto Body Inc. Grand Opening 

We are glad to share with you exciting news.

L.C. Auto Body Inc. - one of our long time customers just recently had a chance to celebrate their great success as a business. In our turn we are excited to share their story with you.

“Twenty seven (27) years ago, L.C. Auto Body Inc. opened their garage doors as a grass roots auto collision business in a nearby town.  Owner and operator, Larry Constable, a 1981 graduate of Octorara High School and a lifelong resident of Parkesburg, has fond memories of growing up in the borough.  Recollections of Soap Box Derby races on First Avenue, buying candy from Dee's Grocery,celebrating the Borough's Centennial Birthday and daily mechanical training from his dad, Jack Constable, run deep in his blood. Larry eagerly responded to an opportunity to move the business into Parkesburg in 1985.

Located on route 30 just 1 1/2 miles off the intersection of Routes 10and 30, L.C. Auto Body has served the growing community as a solid and trustworthy business.  Car accidents are stressful, but the employees of L.C. Auto Body make up the unparalleled team of qualified technicians, licensed appraisers and friendly office staff that strive for EXCELLENCE in customer service and superior quality auto collision repairs.  Every full-time technician is certified in ASE and        I-CAR training to optimally use the state of the art equipment for superior and complete auto body collision repairs.  Every job is vacuumed and hand washed upon completion. They provide a written life time warranty on all work performed and stand behind all their repairs as they endeavor to exceed expectations on all levels of service at L.C. Auto Body Inc.

L.C Auto Body is a proud supporter of the Parkesburg fire house, the Parkesburg Library, and the Parkesburg Area BusinessAssociation.  Driven by a love for young people and realizing that they are our future, Larry volunteers with the Parkesburg POINT Youth Center, the Octorara Middle School Bible Club, teaches Sunday school at a local Church and is on the advisory council for Willow Street Vo-Tech, CAT Brandywine Vo-Tech and Stevens Trade School.  With a thankful heart, Larry always jumps at the opportunity to share that the recipe of success for L.C. Auto Body has been the result of blessings from the Lord, a focus on values such as integrity, diligence, hard work and honesty and much appreciated support from the community, customers and employees.”

We had the great honor to be among the guests invited to the Grand Opening of their New Facility that will serve as a New Home for L.C. Auto Body Inc.

L.C. Auto Body  is a long time customer and has used our products for many years, especially products made by  BASF Automotive Refinishes.

Roger Sipe, the local BASF Paint Rep, was able to invite a special guest to attend the Grand Opening. Chip Foose – famous car designer and enthusiast, star of the Overhaulin’ TV show (which is soon coming back to TV with new episodes), flew in from California just to attend the event.        

Chip immediately became a great attraction for all attending the Open House. His open and friendly personality attracted many people that day. Lots of fun, friendly talks and personal stories were exchanged all evening. Initially the Open House was to be from 4-7 PM but Chip would not leave until everyone in line got a picture or his signature on a BASF Chip Foose Special Edition Poster.

Even guys in the shop got a chance to personally meet with Chip  and get some time one-on-one with him. Oh what fun! Finally at11:00 PM Larry, Chip, and the crew finally left the building.

Needless to say it was a very long but extremely successful day for L.C. Auto Body.

As Larry said, "This event has exceeded any preconceived expectations that I may have had." "I am grateful to Roger Sipe, BASF, Chip, and Zimmerman Auto Body Supplies for everything they did to help make this a big success."

Our congratulations to L.C. Auto Body and best wishes for their new facility. We are looking forward for many more years of working together towards making our businesses successful.

There are a lot of rumors and uncertainty in the auto body repair industry today in regards to waterborne paint systems.

What to believe? Who to believe? How to make a right decision, an informed decision when the time comes?

Which product is right for you? Don’t be a “crash test dummy”!
Here is a unique opportunity for you to come and test waterborne products available today and ask all the important questions from the experts right on the spot.
Think of it as an “All You Can Paint Buffet”.
Try everything we have in one spot and make your own decision.

Just ask any of the people that attended the “Mythbuster Waterborne Test Drive” what they thought and they will gladly share their experience with you.

On Thursday evening April 14th perhaps Central PA’s largest gathering of industry professionals in recent history was assembled to greet those in attendance and answer all the questions they had on converting to waterborne coatings.

 

Everybody who attended had a chance to Spray 5 different waterborne and complaint coatings represented by Akzo Nobel Coatings, BASF, and Sherwin Williams. What an amazing opportunity! We called it an “All you can spray buffet”.  Painters were able to try various waterborne ready spray gunsfrom Sata, DeVILBISS,Iwata, and Sharpe and see thecompressed air filtration units from Tsunami, Sata, Reading Technologies,and DeVILBISS. There was a lot of information available on shop equipment: from special gun washers required for waterborne coatings (provided by Uni-ram) to various air blowers (amplifiers) from Garmat, Sata, DeVILBISS, and Prevost.

All attendees were able to talk with these industry professionals and get their questions answered on the spot. A lot of great equipment was on display and everyone had a chance to get more familiar with it.

The highlight of the evening for many was the hands-on with the products. Some comments heard from attendees were, "They answered every question I had", "I can't believe how fast that waterbase paint covered", "Blending was very easy", "It's nice to see a jobber putting on programs like this, it's like the old days." Comments like these say it all.

CARS couldn't have asked for a better turn out or results. A special thank you is due to all of our supporting manufacturers and especially Brenner Nissan, Jeff, Abdul,  and the entire crew for their part and assistance in hosting the event. Without you this evening could not have been a success.
