Auto Painting reviews in San Diego

The team showed up right on time (second try, since their scheduler did not set it up correctly the first time) and thoroughly explained the process. They used power from the garage for the buffing and air compressor, but had us close the door and masked everything when they started the paint touch-up in the driveway. They returned a few days later at the specified time to do the final

and clear coat. Both guys were very professional and cheerful.

I would never go back to this repair shop! I felt they dealt dishonestly with me and did not do an adequate job painting my car (both the 1st & the 2nd time).
The new manager said they would 'work with me' and quoted another thousand plus dollars to repaint the car ... again! The new owner said this was their “good-will” towards me. However, this time they'd do a complete detrim (remove bumpers, window metal trim, etc) for a better outcome. And, once again said they'd offer a 10 year warranty - which at least was in writing this time.
The paint job turned out alright, but I incurred a several hundred repair bill from my mechanic to fix things the painters did to my car in reassembling it! And, I had to pay for a rental car while they kept my car two weeks!
And, I thought I had a written warranty the first time, but apparently did not. BE CAREFUL - CHECK YOUR ESTIMATE AND FINAL RECEIPT for the written warranty. According to Calif law, any warranties expressed or implied – orally (e.g., "we'll give you a 10 yr warranty...") are only really good for just 1 yr. So, my advice: GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING (e.g., 10 yr warranty craftsmanship & Labor, & life time warranty on the paint/clear coat used), and take detailed Before and After pics of your car before letting the body shop work on your vehicle. So sad, things must come to this!
The Dept. of Consumer Affairs met with the shop owner and manager who said they did all they were responsible to legally do for me, and that the current owner had a legal document from the prior owner absolving him of all prior warranties from the co. to customers like me. Turns out though, they kept the same C-corp. (the co. was the same) and allegedly the new owner was the silent partner & vice versa - e.g., they switched

as President. In other words, they seem to be barely skirting the law with an apparent intent of not living up to their customer promises or dealing with their low quality work from the past in trying to cut costs and make a buck. Hope you have a better experience ... elsewhere!

The job was to be completed in several days but, due to unforeseen huge patches of bondo from an apparent accident, it took a few days longer.

kept me fully advised and told me exactly what stage they were in. He had to remove many of the panels from the pickup in order to more thoroughly paint them. Due to the unexpected bondo spots, which had cracked down to the base,

made the extra effort to reglaze the bondo spots for painting. He put on more coats of paint than expected but did not charge extra for the paint or labor in the final bill.

was OUTSTANDING. He has years of experience and provides a great paint job for a fair price. You could barely tell the difference between the new vs. old paint because he did a terrific job matching and applying the new paint.

was great.

made me aware of the worst case scenario but we decided to proceed. The finished product is truly amazing. It is better than the original. A really nice feature that they have is that a picture is taken everyday and put on their website so you can monitor the progress. The car was finished on time and below estimate.

Car was returned with paint over-spray in many places. Repair of gate finish was not perfect but very good for not having to buy a new gate. For more than twice the price I could have had the job done perfectly at another shop. Since the car was not new and I was paying rather than the insurance company,

provided a worthwhile solution. Later they cleaned up the over-spray but it took time and was an unnecessary hassle. Next I would ask someone to check the car carefully before asking me to retrieve it.

They matched the previous color exactly and did an excellent paint job. They weren't good at returning my phone calls and didn't have the car ready at their promised date.

Experience was excellent. The vehicle was prepped and painted in a timely manner. Quality of work was very good, although there was some very minor deficiencies when a worker apparently left a rag on a portion of a door, which left fabric fibers in the paint.
