  • Can you recommend a paint shop?

    Looking for a reasonable auto body shop in Orange County (California). So far the best price I have found is $3500 if I strip the car myself.

    Lee, there are a lot of quality shops in the O.C. - but the deals get better if you travel out.

    Here's one that is well worth the easy drive from O.C. I'm not sure that I have ever seen a better value of the finished work vs. cost.
    Jerry's Body Shop
    3125 E Gage Ave
    Huntington Park CA 90255

    The only reason to call is to set an appointment - like all shops they need to actually see the car to give a quote.

      I don't know LA. But, when I was in search of a good body & paint shop, I went to the local automotive paint supplier and asked who was good that wasn't trying to get rich. The guy provided me with a business card. And I have used the same guy for the past twenty years.

      You might try that approach ...

        Just remember when it comes to paint, you are going to get what you pay for. Make sure that after the car is stripped it is sealed with a good quality epoxy primer. It is what is under your paint that is going to make a paint job last for years to come.
