Default Recommend Good Body Shop Plz

My first body shop didn't fix my car totally. Gave the car back to me, then went bankrupt the next day. Now I have to find another shop. Hopefully, with a good alignment machine. Can someone give me recommendations for body shops, alignment shops in the bay area?

Right now, my trunk does not seal properly and with the wet weather, there is a pool of water around the spare tire =[. And my rear seats are soaked too =[.

Man that sucks. Take it to PanelCraft in Berkeley. They do great work. Very good attention to detail.

Dude!!! You're right near Avenue Auto in San Carlos. Highly recommended by me (worked on two of my WRXs) and used by Carlsen as their body shop. Aaron is a nice guy and their service and workmanship is great.

Go there!

sup
go to bridge's in burlingame
look them up....they are very big and well known.
san carlos is not that far away either.
after i had my alingment done...i was taking turns must faster with less skidding

they do work on track cars too...and its very reasonable.
60 bucks for a alingment.

Talk to Matt at Carmat, he is the owner of the shop and he has a WRX too! They do GREAT work. I went in last time, got the car back, and they missed something. Without a quesiton, they took, it fixed it, and deal with my insurance company for me. Hell, I didn't have to do anything with my insurance company other then filing the claim. Good luck! Tell them Leo Chan with the blakc 02 RS refered you to them

1st one was a hit n run. some dumb a$$ backed right into the from driver side quater panel and bumper. came out perfect even w/o fade into the hood. 2nd one was on the xterra that got keyed very deep all around the suv. they paint the area that was keyed w/o the who suv and no one can ever tell it was repaint before.
personlly i am a very picky on the body work and i don't have one single complain.
i think u shall give them a try!

Recommend Oakland Smooth Auto Body!!
You can see there are some pictures and they did my friend's yellow GC8, white purple beetles, purple maita, and my wrx (some installation). juz tell JOE with a subaru wrx sent you there and you will have discount. If you do insurance claim...you have to go that shop and work something out!!
But there is no alignment machine. ^_^"
they can sent you somewhere cheap...

Very nice paint job!!

Address and phone# will post tonight.

JOE

Here is the address:
1228 41st AVE
Oakland
CA 94601

510 2619077 (VAN)

Good luck
