Anybody know of any good body shops or referrals in the Chicago area? Namely around Aurora? I'm doing a body resto. (rust, dents etc.)

Also interested.

Also need a referal for north dallas Mckinney area. No one wants to touch my car. Pissed me off enough that I won't take my honda to any of these places anymore.

I think they were looking for an actual shop that does the work, not a place to buy cheap crap to stick on your car.
It's ok - I had Subway for lunch.

Can anyone recommend a body shop that does custom work in the bay area? I'm looking to have my car wide-bodied.

In Albuquerque, NM, I've used:

Crown Coachworks
431 Edmon, NE - Near the I-25/Montano corridor at Edith, conveniently serving Albuquerque’s east side. 505-344-1090 Redd or Eric

When I needed my Z32 fixed after a truck backed into me. They did a great job. not the cheapest, but IMO the best in the burque. I'm planning on having them do my paint on my S30HR when the time comes.

With the number of Z's here in San Diego county and there's not one body shop recommendation ?

Please don't say 'Earl Scheib' :) !

Actually, Maaco and Earl Scheib aren't bad at all but I would do all the prep work myself if I would go to a shop like those two. If you want a quality show paint job, go to my friends at Sinful Enhancements at Lemon Grove CA.

I, too, would like a recommendation for the DFW area. I'm looking for someone to mold the flares on my widebody, so quality of the bodywork is important...I'm not too worried about the paint.

Any chance of a reference for the greater Sacramento area? There was mention earlier in this post, but only secretively and as a "call me and I'll give you the secret to life's great mysteries" tipper.

They did the rear end and doors on my 240Z. I was very pleased with the work for such a good price.

I am located in North GA.

I got a quote from a guy of 8-10k for my 1982 280zx and it has some surface rust on the drivers side panels, a couple of dents and a few scratchs.

This includes stripping the car down to metal, body work, priming, and painting (two tone, black and silver).

What do you guys think? Reasonable, or too high?

Thanks.
