It all starts out with a Print out from the Data base of the original build measurements of the vehicle unless its a older classic car and measurements are not available what we do then is set up a blank sheet and run measurements of the existing vehicle confirm that its square

My shop has completed over 15,000 collision Wrecks we have 3 frame machines and also owned a fleet of tow trucks  .
