    Any recommendations for a good, reasonably priced Atlanta-area paint shop for a respray of my 1997 FZJ80. It's 20 years old, just passed 100K mileage, and has been well-maintained. It's my daily driver, and I'm hoping to get a durable paint job to last another 20 years without mortgaging my house in the process . I can spend $5K, but not $12K. Any names of trusted paint shops or individual specialists would be greatly appreciated? 2017-08-09 -- FZJ80 on Peachtree.JPG

    You might connect with Brian at ACC and see who they lean on for paint work.

    I've used Certified in Chamblee a couple of times for minor paint work- good not great (had to ask them to correct some minor issues).


    Most all the shops use the same software estimating program that spits out an estimate for: prep labor- paint labor and materials. It boils down to who does best work for the money.

    Crabtree on Buford Hwy has done good work for me, and they have had a multi-year gig taking care of a pristine 62.

    I emailed ACC this same question a few weeks ago. Never heard back. They must really be busy. I need some rust remediation on the rear lift. Was hoping to find a good shop that also has experience removing 100 series windows. Sounds like it can be tricky.

    Removing them is the easy part. Just use a hammer. It's the putting them back together, now that's the tricky part. :hillbilly:

    Lots of BMW/Porsche guys use Magnum Collision in Marietta on Hwy 41 near Dobbins.
