I'm looking to get my T/A painted. It also needs some minor body work (small dings, dents, chips, etc), and the front bumper has a sizable tear in it.

I would be going with a stock color respray (Sebring Silver Metallic), with the CETA mod. I also want the engine bay panted and cleared the same color, and I need some holes welded up. It would be nice if I can find one shop to do it all.

I'm looking for good work at a good price obviously. But I'm willing to pay a little more for a better job. I'd prefer a shop around north Houston, but also willing to travel farther for a decent shop. Thanks in advance.

The only shop that ever touches my vehicles is Richey Collision. Had my truck fixed (twice), my Honda, and two different Vettes. :thumb:

Call Chris or Karen. Great people.

They have worked on my truck and Camaro. They do quality work and stand behind it.

another vote for Richey, they did a great job on my rocker panel (C5) after I curbed it. I plan on taking the f-body there to repaint the front fascia and SS spoiler.

i hear a ton of good things about Richey but i have no experience with them. i do have experience with sublime customs on jones and they did a great job on my silverado when it was side swiped, the side they did was better than the untouched factory side.

I have heard nothing but good things on both of those shops but I heard the wait is about 2 mo to get a car in there.

I know someone that does excellent work he works with me here at

http://www.thehotrods.com/ He does work on the side and he will give you the price depending on the quality you want from show to just factory. let me know if you are

Thanks

Two months to get a car into Richey? I don't think so. I had to have the entire front-end of my truck rebuilt from a bad wreck, and it was in and out of there in two weeks. And this wasn't that long ago (less than 6 months).

Update. I ended up having Richey Collision just paint the engine bay for now. And wow, did it turn out nice. I'm very happy with the results. They even painted a few of the mounting brackets for no extra charge (fenders brackets, hood latch bracket, etc).

I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking for paint. Thanks for directing me to them, guys!
