This is a double post but I thought since it applies to socal that I would post it here as well. MODS: feel free to delete this if you'd like. Anyway, i'm thinking of taking my widebodied 2 in to get repaired and a new paint job. I'm thinking of P.J.Bonifacio because I know they have a good reputation but I haven't personally talked to anyone who has used them. Has anyone here dealt with them and can tell me what I'm getting involved with? thanks.

They installed the first trd kit you seen years back... the red/white with c5's and te37's one... I saw it in the making.

Or you can try autoexplosion in gardena.. where i had mine done.

MATTHEWMR2,

My cousin just got a fender bender of his repaired on his G35 at P.J.'s shop. It came out looking like a new car again. He did an excellent job on it. PJ is actually a friend of my cousin so i have been in there quite a few times and i have seen many of the cars that he has worked on. Tee is right, he was the one who did the widebody of the "Mister Twister" MR2 featured in Import Tuner Mag. I think his work is incredible. From his old schoolers to the exotics that he has worked on, everything i have seen has came out flawless. He really cares for the final look of the car and definitely does not take any short cuts. I would highly recommend him for getting your body kit repaired. He has actually dealth with quite a few MR2s now, if you go into his shop... you will see article printouts on his wall of all the MR2s he has done. I would recommend you go to his shop and talk to him. Most likely, he'll probably have about 10 cars or so there that he'll be working on. And there you can get a feel for what he's about. But you get what you pay for... so in this case, it might cost a lil more than other places. His website is http://www.pjbonifacio.com/. And if you google his name... some articles will show up which feature some of his rides. I hope this helps, best thing to is to just bring your car to him and he'll be more than glad to take care of you.

I paid around 3200 including color change charges 700+...bodykit was 1250...so just do the math..with wbk's the installation and refinish is what makes or breaks the kit.
