That really seems reasonable. Time and materials... Always the biggest factors in paint/body work.The guy that painted has a really small shop, just him and a helper. They took everything off the truck. Bumpers, grill, door handles, locks, all weather stripping off the windows and roof rack. They must have had 20 hours of labor into the paint job. I was happy to pay them the $2800.
That is exactly the type of shop I was suggesting one of our members from West Palm Beach to seek out. I was suggesting to look further out away from the WPB shops that can charge people with open checkbooks for their Lambos and McLarens. I told him he might do better (at least in the wallet) looking for a small shop further inland, like horse or cattle country towns. He was sure to pay through the nose for anything in the rich city...Where is he located? I wouldn't be opposed to giving someone like that my business.
Oh man, that is too far from me. It seems so hard to find someone in my area that I actually trust or come highly recommended. Seems to me that the days of the mom and pops are about over. I know when I lived in Indiana there were about 4 or 5 shops that were awesome. I used one for 15 years exclusively. Now they are all gone and only the dealers and "big box" places remain. Sad for sure.He is located in Abbeville Louisiana. He moved his shop here from Houston about 4 years ago. I have no idea how long he has been doing body and paint work but suspect is many decades. One more thing. I drop off my car or truck, he drives me back home and then picks me up when the work is done. How is that for customer service!!
If anyone wants to contact him his name is Nick and his cell # is 713-459-4865. Just tell himi that Dave, with the Caddy and Tahoe, recommended him.
