SCRS and Car-O-Liner Partner for SEMA Prize Giveaway

Two winners receive Car-O-Liner Aluminum Workstation and QP-1 Steel Dent Puller.

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS), in partnership with Car-O-Liner, provided two lucky SEMA Show attendees with prizes to help perform both aluminum and traditional steel repairs.

For the fourth year in a row, SCRS’ Ultimate SEMA Giveaway gave attendees the chance to win by visiting SEMA booth locations of companies that supported the association’s Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series. This year’s prizes – the newly launched Car-O-Liner Aluminum Workstation and QP-1 Steel Dent Puller – were won by K. Michael Bradshaw (K&M Collision, Hickory, N.C.) and Paul Rudow (CARSTAR Elmira, Ontario), respectively.

“When I got the call from Aaron [Schulenburg, SCRS executive director] telling me that I had won, I asked if he was messing with me,” said Bradshaw. “It was such perfect timing; we are already Porsche-certified at the shop for aluminum, but were looking to buy this exact piece of equipment as we look at expanding our services to work on Ford’s new aluminum vehicles. It couldn’t have come at a better time.”

This year marks Bradshaw’s first-ever trip to SEMA, and as he explains, SCRS was a major factor in getting him to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“The RDE series was the main reason we came to the SEMA Show. Of course, there are a ton of cool products on the floor to see, some of which we purchased, others we’re looking into for the future, but we got so much out of all the educational opportunities provided by SCRS. The OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit in particular was so informative – to have representatives from manufacturers like Audi, Tesla and BMW sitting right up there and available to answer repairers’ questions was amazing. At our shop, we’ve always held SCRS in high regard – we actually just recently joined as a member – and we’ve always appreciated all they do for the industry. Winning this workstation just makes us appreciate them – as well as the generosity of Car-O-Liner – even more!”
