Default Best Body Shop in Tri Cities?

Guys, I need recommendations for a good body shop with quick service in the Burnaby Tri Cities area. I'm in Poco, and need to get a door sprayed on my DGM 09 Sti. No body work required just prep and spray, possibly just a new cleaarcoat job.
And if anyone has a rough idea what kind of $$ this would cost???

Thanks in advance.

Yes and I will check them out, thanks. Any others that may be closer to Coquitlam, Poco or Burnaby to check as well?

Second for Frist Class in Port Moody. My buddy is the painter there and he does a really good job, super picky about his work. I also think one of the bodymen is a Subi nut like us.

I heard that Tom's Custom Autobody does a great job. I haven't been there personally, but I've seen some of their work. Looks pretty dyam good.

So I went by First Class to get an estimate and they won't even phone me back to give an estimate. Guess they don't do small jobs.

I can second First Class, used them twice. Once when my girlfriend backed into my integra and this year when I backed into someone else lol

Tom's also did a good job on the family car this year.

If you are still searching, Donn Deans in Burnaby has done 3 rounds of work on my (former) 2004 WRX. They stand by their work and always slipped in a little extra work for me.

I've had great results from Mark's Autobody on Lougheed in PoCo. Went above and beyond to get the car back to perfect after an old gal drove down the side of my parked car.

From personal experience, Tom's Autobody in Coquitlam was very poor. They worked on my Miata, and did an awful job. The paint wasn't mixed right, now all panels they sprayed have oxidized beyond belief. The bondo work didn't match original (on the right wheel arch) and there are runs on the bumper!! Took it back, got into an argument with the owner and had to go through ICBC to have the guarantee honoured. The owner told me to fix it myself, and tried to give me some cutting compound and rags. Unprofessional all around.
