Thanks man! Didn't know they changed the name. Any other recommendations? I think you mentioned they had to repaint your wald spoiler because the color was way off.

OP be careful about sunny auto body
I go to there all the time and it's my go to shop for body work. I have gotten plenty of paint jobs from them and would not hesitate to go back to them.

however, if you're going to paint a front lip that you plan on scraping a lot, I would find another shop. my front lip is peeling after less than 6 months.
asked a couple members on here and they said the body shop didn't use the proper flex additives.

I don't blame them though, they don't normally deal with modded cars and for the price they charged me, I can't really complain.
definitely recommend them if you're painting a different part of your car though! got my door and front bumper painted from them and it looked absolutely amazing!

Sunny auto body no longer paint aftermarket parts like lip and stuff however I got my Subaru sti front lip painted from them long time ago at least 6 years ago and still hold up really good. They have lifetime warranty for their job but I don't think it apply to lip kit since it will scrape all the time.

I had my bumper painted by Reliance Auto Body down in San Jose. They've done a great job on my car as well as many other members' cars.

Thanks everyone for the feedback! I'm doing the 2012 F sport front bumper conversion so the only thing I need painted is the bumper and lip spoilers in SGM. My car only has a modest drop (fsport springs) so I won't/shouldn't be scraping.

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.

Kims Auto on San Jo. I had my front end painted and the clear bra added. Paint is NOT difficult to match if the shooter knows what he, or she, is doing. This is correct that it will never match a fadded car but pretty close. Mine came out beautiful and no complaints thus far. If you yelp Kims Auto you can see a lot of positive reviews, which I'll also add to. I'll add pics hopefully this weekend.

+1. I vouch for these guys also. Their Yelp page is almost entirely 5* reviews. I won't go anywhere else.

They've done work on all of my previous cars. They've also installed the mods on my current car. The service is personalized and the work is A+ quality. Alex and Chris are really easy to work with. And, they have special rental rates with Enterprise down the street.
