I'll second what mini-mouse said. I've heard rave reviews from others about Maitland Imports for years. Now I can rave about them firsthand. Ian's shop is first rate!

Maitland Imports would be the only independent garage I would let touch Trevor.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a paint/body shop now that Glimpse is no longer around? We always used Luis at Glimpse for any paint issues, and now I don't know where to go :-(

SANFORD PAINT AND BODY. Shelving unit fell onto our 2011 MCS last week. Insurance claim to replace bonnet, repaint drivers' side door, remove dents, replace smashed pillar, and replace custom side stripes. Tow truck ignored insurance company, but was at our door within 45 minutes after a call from the shop. Got the car back within 5 working days, as promised and brand new. They totally rock. Customer service and work was top-notch for us!

I have been to Maitland Imports and have nothing but good things to say about them.
However; for convenience sakes, there is a closer shop.
Anyone here have any experience with Euro Specialists in Longwood?

IMO that' very much inside the DIY limits (or I'm seeing the picture wrong)

Dr Colorchip is an option https://www.drcolorchip.com/


I'd use regular t/up paint and LANGKA myself cuz I've used it for years . . . http://www.langka.com/

I get my t/up paint from http://www.automotivetouchup.com/

most body shops won't want to mess with something so small.

You could also airbrush it ... if you have access to super small quantity of automotive paint . . . and an airbrush . .

am I qualified to comment? Dunno .... U decide

It's been dented in and popped back out it seems. Driver did leave her info with my apt office, so will follow up from there. Probably just shop around the body shops
