Can anyone recommend a good body shop in SoCal, preferably in Los Angeles, that does show quality work?
I also reccomend Barry's Shop. He's now in Corona. If you need a phone or address, let me know. I know it's a slight distance from L.A. but he's worth it. A show paint job is a big decision, (you get what you pay for), enough said. Barry now has a full time painter, his name is Tony, great guy. Tell him that I sent you. I have pictures of my 66 that Tony painted if you want to see his work.novanutcase said:Can anyone recommend a good body shop in SoCal, preferably in Los Angeles, that does show quality work?
Big dollars to have this kind of work done!I hope you are prepared to spend upwards of 20-30k to have a custom frame bent and a top notch paint job.bmnovanutcase said:Now Now Gentlemen.......put them fangs away!!!! I was thinking about my body shop dilemma and I heard through some other forums that there is a shop in Auburn, Washington that does GREAT Nova work. In fact, I am told, they did Ted and Sue Richardsons SMOTY '67 Nova. Does enyone know what the shop is called. I figure that if Wayne Due is going to bend the frame up in Seattle and they are in Auburn, why not have them do it. What do you think?
I would think mild to moderate body work block it and paint it(3 stage).Show quality body work cost big dollars.Since your in socal I would really look at Barry White SRRC.http://www.barrywhitesrrc.com/home.htmlnovanutcase said:When you say "complete" are you talking replacing quarters, rockers, windshield and backglass rot areas, doing some moderate fabbing, etc. or is this just some moderate body work, block sand and paint? I'm going to take a bunch of photos of the body now that I have it mostly stripped to metal. This way I can show whoever is going to do the body work what they have to work with.
