Florida Paint Shop Recommendation Needed
« on: February 13, 2024, 14:33:26 »
I had a client contact me this morning located in SW Florida looking for a high quality paint job on their Pagoda, any recommendations? He is also willing to ship the car to the right person as well.

Have had a few people involved with high end car detailing tell me there is only a couple of excellent paint shops in Palm Beach County that are really good due to the technology they have in the paint booth and qualified employees with years of experience.   Although we aren't in southwest Florida, assuming possibly same conditions may exist on the other side of the state as well. Folks I talked to seemed to think the best paint jobs are done up north. More experienced painters and less humidity. Harder to find paint shops that want to do this kind of work.  Have talked with several good body shops that paint high end cars in Pittsburgh. They only want insurance work.
