In LA? hehehe

Throw a rock in any direction. lol


On a more serious note: Somebody that's been in the area more recently than me will chime for sure.

The question you should ask is how much you're willing to pay a shop to do what you want to do. Do a search on Youtube. You can check out the shop and usually see what kind of work they do. It's LA... Nearly all of them have a Youtube channel unless gramps is still running things.

The model year can have a lot to do with it too.

I’m totally aware that body shops are a dime a dozen here in LA. That’s why I was looking for a recommendation from someone who had personal experience at a paint and body shop that does exceptional work. My Fox was painted by StangWerks in the Inland Empire over 10 years and even today with a detail, it still looks like it came fresh out of the booth. But unfortunately, it was damaged during a recent move out of storage and I’m looking to get it repainted. StangWerks is no longer around. The contact information I had for Eddie the owner is no good. Ricardo @ GTR in Rancho Cucamonga who also worked on my Fox gave me a referral but that’s all I’ve got at the moment.

Yeah, been a lot of years since I lived in that area so what I would recommend may or may not still exist. heh

Lots of folks on this forum tho. Somebody in your current neck of the woods will be along.

I would still hit up youtube tho. The project videos will tell you what kind of work they do then you can research how timely they are.

If it's an insurance repair, that usually makes it easier (if you can believe that) and you can pay them more to do er... "better" than what insurance requires.
