I'm starting to think real seriously about getting my '86 Caballero repainted. Got some rust at the base of the 1/4 windows, couple of rock chips, etc. Anyone care to recommend a good shop in the Ft Lauderdale area?
86_Cabellero,My 87 was painted by Second Generation Auto Body in Davie.Joe and his shop did a fine job at a fair price for me.To see a photo of it go down 8 posts to 82Elco Quasi mod day.They are at 4607 Oaks Road,954-791-1280 or fax#954-791-3925.Mine was painted with PPG Vibrance Collection and color shifting liquid crystal.You can order a brochure from PPG Industries 19699 Progress Drive Strongville,OH,44149 - part # bro vb.2/05 or go to a PPG dealer.Be sure to take the color outside in the sun.If you go there please tell him I recommended them.Lenny from Key Wesat with the Conch Shell painted El Camino.
I'd say 99% of the places down here are rip a rip off. I am geting my body work and paint done up north. If I did stay though, I would go to Impact, its a auto repair shop but they have one of the best painters there. He has painted tons of show cars, like the slammed orange dually or his own personal car, a color changing acura. The work they do there is beyond good. He fiber glassed 2 10" subs into the dash and then painted everything (inside and out) to match and his car was changing a good 3 colors or more.
There is really an excellent and honest guy in Lake Worth. Call this number and ask for Wayne. They specialize the restorations and specialty paints. Absolutely awesome work at a fair price. they can do all the metal replacement and etc. Tell him Neil told you to call.
