The Erie Institute of Technology in Erie, PA, recently opened up a new auto body technician lab featuring a lift, paint booth and frame-straightening machine.

From Jim Martin’s article on the GoErie.com website:

Erie Institute of Technology calls the building at 122 W. 13th St. an auto body technician lab.

But it looks, sounds, smells and feels more like a garage, complete with the scent of Bondo that hangs in the air, the sight of sparks flying from a body grinder and the gentle whoosh of sand paper polishing a car door to a glassy, smooth finish.

The new classroom, which opened in September, is a place where rusted, dented and broken cars and trucks come for a new lease on life.

More importantly, the school, which has is headquarters at the Millcreek Mall complex, sees this building, outfitted with a lift, paint booth and frame-straightening machine, as a place where students can take the first steps toward a new career.
