    Hi everyone I'm new here!

    I was just wondering if anyone can recommend a reputable body shop? I figure if someone can masage an Italian body panel and make it look new again they must have some talent.

    Thanks

    J, Rock does body too? Cool.

    I will give you right now two names of the best bodyshops probably in Canada.

    -Dupont Auto Collision Next door to Gentry Lane (Formerly Ferrari official Bodyshop) and still do some Ferrari. Been around for well over 20 Years. Ask for George. Located on Dupont St. Next door to Gentry Lane just east of Shaw St.

    -427 Auto Collision - This is actually a North American bodyshop competition winner (yeah, they have such a thing LOL) and you would all see what I am talking about when you see their shop. It looks like a Pharmacists labratory. They do resto's and everything else. Over 25 Years plus in the business. I cant remember one of the owners names but call someone LOL
    Located on Evans just 1/2 Block west of Kipling in Etobicoke.

    Being in the car business I have had experiences with both these places from hartop-repaint on 911's to full resto's.

    Anyways, hope this helps. PM me for more info if you'd like

    Anyone have experience with this shop www.gibsonvander.com

    Peter Woo I've heard is really expensive, but probably the best in the city!

    Thanks

    Anyone have any idea how much it would cost to have a 911 turbo professionally stripped and repainted a different color?? Any ball park figures would be helpful. Thanks!

    I can personally vouch for GibsonVander. Frank Gibson is excellent and has a fantastic attention to detail; he is very skilled and knows his stuff.

    Call all the body people we all have mentionned here on this thread. That's the only way to get a proper quote.
