Default Looking for a good body shop, wheel shop, and tint shop.

As the title states, I'm looking for a good body shop, wheel shop/powder coater, and tint shop, in the western mass northern conn area. Already checked out Connecticut Custom Cars in Enfield. Seem like they do quality work, if a bit pricey. Would rather pay a little more for a good, reputable shop.

Thanks!
~Jay

Worst tint shop around. I know first hand after they ****ed up the tint on my 07 WRX and put a ding in my right rear door.

Solar Solutions in Bedford, MA is the best around...best price too. A couple dealerships I've heard take their customers cars there as well.

Well, thank you for your 5 minutes of time wasted on my behalf, but if you actually read my OP, I asked for suggestions for *western* Mass. The furthest west place in any of those threads was Worcester, and I was hoping for, as they say, "Westah Woostah." I had no idea that Boston area was in western Mass.

Again, thank you so much.

Tint king has the best options when it comes to window films, paint protection and vinyl

They have Llumar base and ceramic films, Huper optik(german) High performance and ceramic films. They all come with manufacturer lifetime warranty


Solar Solutions only offers Suntek which only comes with a 5 year warranty from the manufacture.

Be patient. I'm sure that you know that Eastern Mass people think anything west of 128 is "like...the Berkshires or San Francisco". I'm only in Hopkinton and have had craigslist people in Malden not understanding how it's not possible to get to my house by simply taking 128.

Look at the Table and Vine western mass meet thread and attend one. You'll be able to get locals to help you out.

(jack is from westfield, so understands)

My window tint came with a lifetime warranty from Solar Solutions, the rear window was done in one piece, and not one air bubble was to be found on any of the windows...all at a lower price. The guy is a master.

The two cars I had done at Tint King in the past always had bubbles, and both times I had to go back for them to fix it...and the little bitch never fessed up for dinging my door (at same exact level as his rolling stool).

Never again.
