Default Paint job in SoCal

I am looking to get a lip painted in Ultra White. Is there any shops in SoCal that have the capability? Also, How much would a lip paint job cost?

I just took my car to Harry's Auto. Collision to get a quote and thought it was unusually low, I compared the quote to another shop and saw that Harry's were using "refurbished parts" -- I'm sure it's nothing that the other shops don't do, but I think you have to make people aware you are using refurb parts or at least ask if you have a preference.

Agree. They showed me the order when I got my part.

You said you have used Harry's in the past and are happy with their work? I need to get my car taken care of and admittedly driving myself a little crazy trying to pick a shop.

Sure did. I hit something on the freeway and needed the front bumper on my IS-F replaced. They did a great job. The rep I worked with was Dave Gasparyan. Hope he's still there (been 2-3 years since my repairs were done). He's a car guy as well so he understands enthusiast.
