Good bodyshop in el paso?

Post by 2slo on Sun May 11, 2014 12:01 pm

My name is Kirr and I drives a 06 gray STI. Came home from the field and found out someone keyed my car, was wondering if there is a good body shop you guys would recommend. Thanks in advance!

How bad is the keying? Just a buffing or will repaint need to be done?

Honestly, I've heard issue with the shop the dealership uses. Also, try to stay away from Alameda as most of the shops down there do below average work. I am waiting to get mine repainted right now =(

No, the dealership constantly has complaints about the shop they use. Usually pieces have to get repainted at least once before they look decent.

So the question remains, is there a shop in El Paso that does good work?

I honestly don't think so. You see some phenomenal paint jobs but when you take the car to that shop, the paint is less than ideal. I'm sure Don and Preston can agree to that with Buddy's. Also, my NCOIC had her daughters car painted at a place called Dirty Customs. She asked for sanding, primer, paint, and clear...got the quote and the result was utter crap. Like above, most of the cars that were parked outside were flawless.

I was afraid you'd say that... ok let me rephrase the question. Is there any shop in El Paso that does passable work for the money you pay?

I can ask some of the people I work with to see if they know any shops that are honest, affordable, and do quality work. I'm in need of some body work along with a respray as well.
