Uniform Reference and Dimensional Guidelines for Collision Repair
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 bodyframe and unitized vehicles, including passenger cars and light trucks, are addressed.
Rationale: SAE J1828 is being updated to reflect the current states of technology in light-vehicle collision repair dimensioning methodologies and processes, OEM vehicle dimensioning systems and aftermarket measuring equipment.
