Default Need a good detailing/body work/PDR shop

My paint is in really bad condition. Scrapes, dings, dents, paint chips, swirls, and oxidation are all over the place. I'm thinking about DIY, but the paintless dents/paint chips are stopping me from doing so.

Does anyone know any good shops around City of Industry/Orange County? I just want to get an estimate and let them comment on what I should do with it. Thanks in advance.

The shop I use is in OC and is called autorecon, autorecon.com and their contact is :

7 Oldfield . Irvine . CA, 92618
main: 949.587.2886
fax: 949.587.0107
toll free: 800.583.DENT (3368)

Talk with James. They seem to be fair and reasonable and with some patience, you'll get some great results.

If you just want a quote/advice, give Kennedy at Premiere Auto Collisions a call. I just dropped my car off there for a paint job. They are located in S. El Monte off the 60 freeway which is not too far from Industry. Shoot me a pm for his info.

Default Was in Accident - Need reputable body shop.

Hey guys,

Guy in a F350 decided to make a left hand turn from the right hand lane, didn't see me and hit me!

Any help locating a reputable body shop in the Los Angeles area would be appreciated!

Longo Toyota’s body shop if his insurance is paying for it. The work they do is great! They rip you on the cost but it’s well worth the work especially if it’s on his bill!!!
