Well, it is time to get some bids on repainting my 1995 FJ80. Unfortunately, I have a little bit of rust that has to be addressed in two areas. The plan is to remove the back windows, and all rubber and plastic pieces from the body. It will be stripped as completely as possible. It would be nice to find a place that will do really good work but not charge Ferrari prices. Any suggestions my friends?

Appreciate it.

Amato's in San Diego has a great reputation. I had two cars repaired by them 10+ years ago and the work was excellent. However, they're not cheap. Either way, it couldn't hurt to call as they could point you to another shop. I'd also be prepared to wait as they tend to be busy so getting scheduled might mean waiting a couple of weeks before they can get the car started.

I've got a guy in Tijuana who does good work. Seriously, no bondo and crap paint type work. He did all the work on my old G-Wagen. Might be a bit of a wait, he can get booked up.

I would be way too nervous to take my truck to another country and leave it there with very little recourse if something went bad. That's a nice G Wagon too!!
