The need to measure the geometry of the body.

Checkpoints Kalina sedan

So, in body repair, measurements are always taken at certain body control points. To do this, measurements are made on both sides of the body of the same distances or parts. The results obtained are compared with factory standard values. Often the reasons for which body repair is necessary are not only accidents, but also driving on rough roads.

But body repair is not the main reason for measuring the geometry of a car. So, experts recommend carrying out diagnostics of this kind before purchasing a used car.

Lada Kalina is a modern car by many standards, designed specifically for domestic roads, and having certain body features. These subtleties and the correct removal of geometric dimensions are important to consider when carrying out repair work.
