Doug needs to pipe in here. He used The Tin Ranch in Westfield to repaint his 300ZXTT last year. From what I've seen, they did a good job. They did forget to glue on a piece of window trim that promptly got lost on the road, but they fixed their error.

I know someone else that took his 260Z there for an estimate and they quoted him something like $15,000! We figure they didn't want the work. The car was not in bad shape. It was painted somewhere else for $4-5k.

Renner's in Noblesville would be where I would go. Steve has been doing body work forever and has forgotten more than most know.

I used Talent in Cicero to paint the Caravaggio rear spoiler for my C5. They've done some higher end cars before and I'd use them again if needed.

Hubler's paint shop quoted me $2400 to respray my entire NSX. Seems a bit cheap, to me.

Considering the massive amount of rock-chops I have (thanks, Dan) I might have them do it just to touch the thing up and then spring for a real paint job $$$ in five or so years after its all chewed up again.

I heard good things about that place too.

Conans Paint and Body did a great job of painting...just has some administrative issues they need to sort out. Like investing in a computer (they don't use computers!).

Borkowski is the only place I trust in Indy. David, the owner, knows how to take care of his customers. I brought the Nissan there when I got rear ended last year and got the car back in less than a week. Then, when I brought the Jag when Laura accidentally hit the cable box, Borkowski didn't charge me for buffing and reinstalling the rear bumper. That's a true customer service. The shop is a little bit pricey compared to other body shops but they know exactly what they're doing.
