Body shop??

I know this has been answered a few times in the general forum and the consensus seems to be that L.A.B. (Rich) are the best out there but unfortunately they are out of my budget. My E30 needs a full respray, not alot of rust at all but doors are very wavy from PO paint job.

Looking for a decent reasonable shop in the Toronto area if you guys know anyone. Also, I would be stripping all the trim and misc parts off myself.

Budget is around 2k

Start looking outside the GTA...Here $2K would get you a quick spray, but nothing good. Prices will drop big time once you move out of the GTA, so even towing will be worth it!

As far as local goes, Rich can do an amazing job, at very competitive prices!

Try Kris at K&K Auto Kosmetics. He has a shop in no man's land and a trialer to get your car out there. Your budget is a little low but you might be able to work something out.

Good luck.

Thanks for the responses. Looks like I may have to stretch my budget. Just hard to justify spending more on paint than the car itself.

@Johnny is that your green e30 on the fb page? Were you happy with the result?

Yes, that's my E30. It was a full colour change and he did a great job for the money.
