Paint Shops in the GTA

Hi Everyone

I just had my front bumper painted (cost me 600 CAD). I drove it for about 2 months on the 401 and the bumper is distroyed again!!!!

I called around and i was told that it will cost me 809.98 CAD taxes-in to get the bumper and hood repainted and about 400 for clear bra.

is this resonable or am i getting hosed?

If so where would you guys recommend i go. Somewhere in the Greater Toronto Area would be awesome (including Kitchener and Waterloo)

Top notch bodyshop, would not go anywhere else.

Last time I was there they had a Carrera GT and a Viper ACR. A few turbos too.

And start taking 407 instead...

K i phoned them and he said

691 + tax to paint the bumper and hood and about 350 for the chip guard on an Aerokit II bumper + hood + fender.

Does that sound about right?

I'm sure you'll get similar answer there as well. It's not if the price sounds right (you already got 2 quotes one higher and one lower), it's the quality of the work.

Go check out the shop if you can, it's pretty big and the facility is clean.

Cool professional body paint shop

no need to go to all those high flying shops ...if you want honest no nonsense and excellent work . try Alliance Collision and Paint Shop.
top notch equipment and people =quality work.. i've seen them work on exotic cars and just average import cars from the different dealerships in the area.
they will factory match any vehicle on the road today.. may not be the cheapest but may be worth it.. may also be out of the way for you but i just thought i'd mention them 'cause i know they are way up there in this business..
thx,t2

Do you want to share who you went with for your first paint job, so we DON'T go to that shop ?
