Yes.... that's very true that shop was used in a couple of Overhaulin episodes. How much is it going to cost you by the way?

not yet bro I'm waiting on the sunshade and radiator relocation kit(from japan)...I want to get everything done in one shot! Have you seen the tomg fenders yet?...when those come out I'll be purchasing one of those baby:)


btw, I'm in the same boat as you on trying to find a good bodyshop that does fitment and paint...But when I uesd to work for Toyota I used to deliever to a shop named Pan's coach(he does classic show cars! very helpful old guys) by seng heng supermarket across the street from nazarine church....and another shop named COLORWORLD charged me 1200 for everything and that includes ding and paint to fix (A friend with a classic 69 Camaro...referred to to this guy)

anyway, i stopped by M1 today for a quote and it's not that bad

my car is currently black: here are the quotes


keep black, body parts removed for paint, greddy front/rear lips, border sides, 98 spec wing-----$2500-3000

color change (under hood, engine bay, trunk etc...)----$4500

IMO-price is reasonable for a quality paint job

however, i'm going with M.O.B.Work-quoted me $2300 for black
