Default SOCAL: Bodyshop for paint!

Hey guys, any suggestion on where to get a really clean paint job? i considering DTM, M1 and Platinum VIP. i know platinum VIP is pricey but their work is unquestionable. DTM & M1 are the same owner but heard some really bad things abt them from other forums they affiliate with. Share some inputs if you paint ur car b4. Thanks

Whatever the case don't cheap out on paint. This is what you see everyday and people will know a shitty job when they see one.

M1 is a litter cheaper then DTM. DTM works on alot of SEMA cars. They are working on three Sema cars for me this year.

DTM painted my front bumper and front fender and did a really good job

Some other options that I have used or people that I know have used are:

Quality Car Craft in Huntington Beach

Quality Craft Auto Body | Just another WordPress site

and my buddy Shawns family bodyshop in Redondo Beach, Mardikian Automotive

Mardikian Automotive Center in Lawndale | Mardikian Automotive Center (310) 978-1444 & 4925 Marine Ave, Lawndale, CA 90260 | <Automotive/Repair & Service/All> - Yahoo! US Local

I wouldn't recommend anyone else. They know what they're doing, especially since they've had a few 370zs stop by there lately. They have a few cars headed to SEMA there right now.
