Default local body shop suggestions?

Ok, I got a check from the insurance adjuster for $440 and some change to replace the back bumper on my wagon. Can anyone recommend a good paint shop in town?

I'm not sure how they would paint just the bumper, on or off the car, but I want to make sure that I don't get any overspray on or under the car.

Also, it appears that my quest for aftermarket rims is slowly dying. I do like the various Prodrive offerings, but they can't come close to the stockers in weight. 16lbs from the factory cast wheel is damn impressive. They are still ugly though.

It'd cost an arm and a leg to get some light wheels that still look good.

I'd like to have them painted or powdercoated anthracite. Which route would be the best to take? I'm guessing paint so they have more gloss to them. Can anybody recommend a place for that?

Thanks

Black and White Auto on Tejon, just south of downtown and just north of I-25 and S. Nevada.

Oh duh! I can't believe I forgot about them. I've already had several cars worked by them. Thanks Larry.

phast, have you looked into the OZ Superleggeras? They are very light (around 15-16 pounds I think), come in anthracite and fit pretty well (+48 offset, 17x7.5). I don't know if they are still in production, but I bet some determined searching would conjure up a set.

Also, I must point out that I think some people on i-club greatly exaggerate the effects of a few extra pounds on your rims when it comes to acceleration. I have 20 pound P1s and I didn't notice much difference after installing them (and I made a point of comparing before and after). Handling is a different matter, but probably only relevant if you auto-x.
