    I'm looking at getting my 90 Crx painted and having the body work done soon and was wondering if anyone could tell me a good place in the Northern Cali area. (Sacramento-Stockton) :huh:

    My bro's friend, is russian, gets tons of hella nice cars, does body work like mad crazy stuff, like it was totaled far worse then anyone would know and yet he rebuilds it and it looks brand new and everything lines up perfect, etc and on top of that he rakes it in.

    Some russians though, he says, do real shit work, like real cheap and all they use is bondo and a frame straightener, not even oem parts.

    PJ's in North Highlands just north of Sac is really good. They have a Tahoe with a chameleon paint job. My friend does body work for them. depends on what you are looking for though. a stock paint job Maaco or 1-day paint is perfect. a custom like pearl or chameleon I would try PJ's or Ground-Zero in Rancho Cordova.

    I'm not sure because I was trying for a sponsorship with a body shop locally so I'm waiting to see what they say but if not then I'll have to pay for it myself and call the shops you guys have recommended. So please keep them coming so if it doesn't work out with my sponsorship I'll have more choices.

    that thing really needs a paint job.

    i'd get either

    the NSX/CL orange
    Gold or Platnum
    high gloss or flat black, nothing in between


    Those colors look nice on CRX's in my head.
