I know you were looking for alternatives, but I just had my 80 painted by the downtown Macco. From what I understand they are all franchises and the quality varries widely from one to another. They did quite a bit of body work and it turned out great at a third of the cost off the other three quotes I got . I will admit that with a really up close inspection you can find a few minor defects in the paint here and there but it looks really good. The body work is solid. I'm in Seattle if you want to come see it in person. I'll post pics in a few.
What they did:
Welded fender flare holes
Repaired a number of small dents
Repaired rust around and under the windshield gasket
Repaied rust under roof rack mounts (the rack is now off)
Re worked the bottom front ds front fender and ds end of the front valence which had been damaged in an accident
Sanded out the original two tone
Painted body all silver
Painted the black around the windows
Painted the grill matte black
Painted the rear bumper ends and rear spoiler gloss black
Painted the rear cross member matte black
Anyone know of a quality paint shop in the Seattle, WA area? I hear good AND bad things about Maaco so I'm looking for alternatives from TLC owners.
