    Looking for a reputable paint shop with experience in exotics to color match the targa top on my 348, and perhaps some other work. A cursory look has Sublime Restorations and Mike's Autobody of Malden on my radar. Any feedback or others that I should be looking at? Located in Carlisle, so eastern MA and southern NH is the range.

    Thanks!

    Well I don't know if they have experience with exotics, but they have done work for me for over 25 years and I can tell you they are meticulous. Check out State Road Auto Body in Wayland. Their number is 508-358-5191. You can ask for Steve the owner, but he is semi-retired so if he's not there ask for Mike.

    I feel confident of one thing, if they can't do what you want, they'll tell you.

    I have a couple paint shops depending on the job... our Restoration paint jobs are completed by CB Restoration in Bradford MA and we have a great shop next door to our shop in Waltham, ABKO Autobody. I can setup work with both places for you.

    Several 308 owning friends have had restoration and paint work done by Thunder Road Specialty Auto Shop in Merrimack, NH. Work I have seen is top quality and very fairly priced.

    I have gone to Mike @ Woburn Street Auto Body in Tewksbury for close to 2 decades. If price is a concern he is very good for what he charges. He has worked on my Testarossa, Porsche 930, and 70's Mercedes among many other cars I have had (He did some excellent work on a '79 308 GT4 many years back). He has a strong attention to detail. He does color-match using a 3rd party with a paint scanner (or whatever term is used for that device). He takes care of you and your car, explains everything, shows you everything as it progresses and stands behind his work.

    Hi All,

    Hoping to revive this thread. Can anyone recommend some paint shops closer to Boston? I have a couple spots that I want to get touched up (nothing major). Please let me know, thank you.

    If you're in Boston, go to Mike's Autobody.

    Hi Rick,
    Thanks for the recommendation, I will give them a call because they are indeed well renowned in the central Boston area. Unfortunately, one of my friends had a bad experience with them so I have some reservations. Have you heard of "Wreck-a-mended Autobody"?

    No i haven't but I will say this. No place is perfect, sorry to hear your friend had a bad experience. How long ago was it? But given how many glowing reviews they had, the math favors that you'll have a better experience there vs. anywhere else close by. I also have first hand personal and business experience with a shop in NH if you're willing to drive 50 min. North. If so, you can private message me and I can share with you their info in case you decide against Mike's.

    Can I ask who you'd recommend in NH? Looking into getting the nose of my car touched up or resprayed. Also, any ideas for a good paint correction outfit in NH by chance?

    They are directly across the street (Columbia Circle) from HM Motorsports (probably the best exotic shop in the area, see InlineSixx above...he is one of the initials of HM). I haven't used Thunder Road myself yet but others speak pretty highly of them.

    Have 3 friends who used Thunder Road for their 308 paint work. All very pleased with quality and cost.

    Thank you for the kind words!

    Yes, Euro Motorsport - [next door to HM] is where Haleem and I handle our exotic, vintage, and speciality work.
