Hi there! I just joined this forum today, but my car is actually in my friend's body shop at the moment. My baby IS300 will be ready by Monday, so I am anxiously awaiting my fully repaired girl. Anyway, I thought that I would introduce my friend to you. He does very high grade repair work for very reasonable prices. Try calling him and talk to him. He is very knowledgeable with cars, and he knows many ways to cut down repair costs. His name is Makito Nakai, and his body shop is called "Seven Apple", located in Torrance, CA. His number is 310-972-8529. Tell him "Makoto" told you about him. I am sure he'll take good care of you. Good luck!

P.S. I have attached some photos of the damage to my car. The last photo was sent to me a couple of days ago by Makito to update me on the progress. If you want, I will show you the finished product when it's done on Monday? Please let me know.

Hey Makoto, thanks for taking the time to post and uploading the pics. I really appreciate it.

Looks like you had a number done to your car But it looks like Makito is doing some great work to restore it back to health. And yes, please upload some new pics on Monday when the job is done.

If you don't mind me asking, how much is he charging to do the job? You can send me a personal message that info if you prefer. And finally how many days did it take him to do all of the work? Thanks again!

Default Good body shop recommendations near Irvine / OC?

I did a search, but either found really old posts or recommendations that weren't close to Irvine or Orange County.

Looking for a high quality body shop that can work with insurance companies like AAA. I see a lot of recommendations for Platinum VIP out in Irwindale, but that's a bit further than I'd like.

Is there anything closer to Irvine / OC that would be up to par?

Thanks,
v

I tried to visit LEXUS-PARTS.COM but there is no website with that name.

Default Checking for Approvals

I went through about 10 pages and for my location SIXTEEN CUSTOMS and AUTOEXPLOSIOn seem to have been recommended a few times (close to my location).

Then I saw the dates on the 10 pages I looked on were from years ago, so I wish to confirm that SIXTEEN CUSTOMS & AUTOEXPLOSION (both in Gardena) still get approvals from the Club Lexus community.

I have a 1" scratch on my hood from cardboard on teh freeway that went through the paint, so I want a shop to take care of it.

Thx.
