Uniform Reference and Dimensional Guidelines for Collision Repair
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This SAE Recommended Practice defines, for vehicle manufacturers and collision information and equipment providers, the types of vehicle dimensional data needed by the collision repair industry and aftermarket equipment modifiers to properly perform high-quality repairs to damaged vehicles. Both body-frame and unitized vehicles, including passenger cars and light turcks, are addressed.
The purpose of this document is to provide a standardized format for presentation of vehicle dimension data, for use by collision information and equipment providers and collision repair technicians. This dimensional data is to be used in the accurate diagnosis and repair of collision-damaged passenger cars and light trucks.
