i've had a few kits installed by them and have seen the marble paintjobs they've been known for... but has anyone here actually got their car painted by them??... and if so:

-what color?
-price quote? (for whole car or just a kit)
-any cracks, swirls, fade, since it got painted?

a new paint job is just one of my many new plans for my ride and i want to make sure i do it right the first time...any info/suggestions you guys can provide about their quality will be greatly appreciated... thanks :)

edit: also, what do you guys think about M1autobody and autoexplosion???

My friend went to auto explosion to have his car painted. Its painted Marble Dark red...its a sick paint job, and he also had side skirts molded and a custom rear bumper made. From what i saw, the quality of everything done by them was top notch.

M1 is a bit overpriced in my opinion. But you can ask mQike about his paint. one of my friends went to Auto Explosion and his paint came out really well. (championship white).

im guessing your in la. if you're up to drive tosan diego go to san diego collision specialists they do a damn good job. pretty much if you read about a car from sd in a magazine they most likely did the body/paint on it. and remember with something like paint/bodywork dont go cheap. if its cheap its cheap for a reason. i learned that the hard way. :(

i'm in norcal... there's not alot of respectable shops up here that i would trust to repaint my whole car, so thats why i'm willing to drive to socal to get it done...

the shops i've listed are pretty well-known in socal... seen alot of hott rides get done by M1 and a few rides like erica's baby-blue accord by autoexplosion...

doesn't look like JT has some good reviews so i guess there out of the question...

umm as far as paint job..if u're goin marble...i would definetely recommend Jt..i seen numerous marble paint job done by them..sick work.... as for price, if i'm not wrong, starting for marble is about $3-5g.. (i forgot)

m1 is prolly better for candy/ pearl....but yes m1 is notorious for overprice..

i guess tony just provide such great service that makes me wanna go bac or recommend others...

MQike car turned out nice and he went to M1. I recall talking to him about it when it was getting done. They have a pretty good website too.
