Hello Gibbie2007,

Longo Lexus body shop is a good choice if your location is closed to El Monte.
Or you can access your nearby Toyota body aswell.

help us out here and post a pic for goodness sake!

The scrape could be the size of a penny, or the length of your bumper. Details man, details!

Default Recommendations for body shop in Orange County

Im finally tired or looking at the rock chips on my hood. Im in Orange County. Does anyone have a good autobody guy that can just paint my hood? There arent any dents that need to come out, just a good stip down and paint job. Of course for a good price too. Its a black 1998. PM me if you do, or post a reply. Thanks

If it's not dented why don't you buy a Lexus paint touch-up kit from lexus-parts.com.......only about $16 with shipping.

Is this the one on Artesia and gilbert???


ANYHOW. My dad owns a body shop called "USA-1 Auto Body INC." We give lifetime warranty. Mention CLUBLEXUS, and he will give you a 10% discount.
