I'm looking for a shop in the East Bay area preferably fix this for me..I'd like a 99.9% match for the ultra white paint since I'm gonna get a new bumper most likely.

Got my car back from ProLine Auto Body in San Mateo..they do EXCELLENT work. Paint matching and repair far exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend anyone to check them out if you need any body work. Ask for Tommy, who is also on these forums, he and his boss Spencer will take good care of you!

Any recommendations for PDR? Just picked up this 95' LS400. Depression type dent on driver's door.

I have some clearcoat just starting to peel on fender molding, I was wondering who you would recommend painting that part and blend and don't charge me insurance prices because I am paying out of pocket.

In the Sacramento area, we have used Elite Autobody. Andy Mach and team just finished an insurance repair on our rear-ended LS460 and did a fantastic job. It took a while due to the insurance adjuster and parts delays but it is back to pristine conditions and the paint match was great...

AutoWest Collison in San Jose, all local dealers refer to them for work, did a good job with my fender bender, matched paint perfectly.

Kim's Autobody in San Jose. Charles is whom I dealt with there. If you're working through your insurance, he'll hook you up. But if not, it won't be cheap. You pay for what you get, QUALITY. I'll guarantee that his workers know how to spray kits to looking badass, they did mine. I called him and asked what their process was for spraying kits, and he knows exactly the proper steps, so I was satisfied. **** came out lookin sweet. This was back in 2016, sadly I had to go there twice due to 2 separate accidents.

"Give Priola Body Shop San Mateo a call...(650) 341-1100. Josh did an amazing job on both of our SEMA project. He uses BASF Glasurit paint...Google it and you will know the quality of this paint. Sorry for the crappy phone pic. Just tell him Nat sent you."

I second this too. Top notch quality work from the vehicles I have seen them work on!

I had B2 perfection in Sunnyvale paint my front bumper and lip spoilers when I did the fsport front end conversion and paint was spot on. I'm going to them again to do my trunk spoiler.
