Hey guys,

I need to get a spoiler + body kit painted to NBP. Any good shops to recommend?
I'm kinda on a tight budget, so places that can do it for cheap would be nice.

thx,

Try Penney Auto Body. Call for a quote.

penney isn't really the cheapest place, but they do really good work.
the thing is morris now a days isn't really interested in doing bodykit work and stuff anymore as they are too busy, so his prices for doing that stuff is pretty steep.

My coworker told me about them too. I checked out their site but it hasn't been updated since 2004? I thought they might have changed ownership or something since my coworker last visited.

Try Speed Craft Autoline. They do nice work at a reasonable price. AK quoted me twice as much as the second highest quote and four times as much as the lowest quote I got. I think both these shops do great work but there is a big difference in price. I was getting a bodykit and CF hood painted. $4000+ quote from AK, he said cause my car is PWP.

AK were also the only ones to quote me without seeing the car and bodykit which was weird. I called to make an appointment for a quote and he gave me one over the phone.

You can get that done by detailers. No need for body shops. Try www.uniquedetailing.ca.

that's the thing, it might actually be imperfections in the paint, i'm not quite sure. tried my luck at some wet sanding and it fixed it in some spots, but i'm not so sure about the others.

holy fuck sites with music on them.... :thumbsdow when you have your speakers turned up

anyone know if any bodyshop does PARTIAL repair?


wat happened was my stupid rear mugen replica lip got damaged, the very buttom part is missing a chunk due to my stupidlity backing it up. Now i dont feel like shelling out repairing it for $400-500 (yes i got a quote from speedcraft) for a stupid piece of shit fibgerglass. its on the buttom hardly notice, just wondering if anyone know that they might fill the hole and paint the damage part only for a cheaper price.

I could talk to my boss at the bodyshop i work at. I'm pretty sure he could do something to fix it.

A while ago I got tapped by someone in the bumper, it's started to spider web crack on the paint.

Got a quote for 400.. seems a little bit high to me.

Yeah that's repairable, you live in pomo correct? the shop is actually in pomo too. let me show this to my boss and ill see if i can get a good price for you. if you don't mind give the shop a couple of days, too much work not enough time at the moment.

Yeah touch it up asap, because sometimes due to weather and wind the paint starts to peel. So touch it up so wind and water doesn't go underneath the paint.

damn, that means i gotta go buy some touch up paint lol.

are there any special procedures to put touch up paint?.... sorrie, such a newbie question haha. anything to do to make it smooth and not blotchy and so it doesn't go over the normal area?
