Looking for a quality straightener/painter

Postby sotf » July 11th, 2012, 10:48 pm

I know that this has probably been asked already, but.....

I am looking for a reliable straightener and painter preferably in the North. I am not looking for any special kind of work, just a repaint of the original colour. I have painted a car one by a "small man" body shop and to say they f-up my car would be an understatement.

I want quality work and do not mind paying a little extra for it once I get my car back better than it was with no broken clips, missing parts, etc. I am saying this out of experience.

Feedback is extremely appreciated.

BTW how many coats of clear-coat are usually put on a car? Thanks

who are you trying to direct him too?

from what ive found there is nothing cheap in the north central is cheaper by far
what colour do you have in mind?
a GOOD paint job will cost you at least 6k if you are willing to come central i can direct you to a guy in charlieville

the same fella who does the old school restores, and did a buddy's car. Tg Motorsport. I saw quality in the title, and responded on that.

He's not the cheapest. But you get what you requested without the BS in a timely manner.

I like this post, I hear talk about ah man in Charlie Ville..Does he do patching and welding too..If so please direct me to him or to any other reliable "straightner" in central..

I know most men run from "old cars" and the patching and welding thing now..So any help will be appreciated.

Wow...now seeing this. Anyways, better late than never.

After 3 visits to the shop they could not get the repairs done correctly. I don't think they had the skills or concern required to do the job properly.
