    Anyone know of any good paint shops or know how to paint in the Bay Area? I'm wanting to paint my bumpers, flares and cladding at some point and was looking for some suggestions. Obviously cheaper the better, but I also want quality.

    Yeah I talked to him and he said his guy could do it for $400, but I would have to leave my 4runner up there for a week or so. I can't have that much downtime unfortunately.

    Thanks, I'll have to look into that and see what kind of price they quote me. Also how do you pronounce Linh? (Just Lin?)

    I want to change the topaz color to black. I'm not a fan of the Topaz color at all and the black looks so good with the red. Plus I'm getting some LX450 rims soon and painting those black.

    That would be sweet. Yeah I can't have my 4runner down for long since it is my DD. Thanks!

    I know what you mean and I don't plan on cheaping out on it. I was just saying if someone has a connection that could get the paint job cheaper then that would be better. I'm not going to head over to Maaco and get it painted.

    I got my tercel painted and body work for like $700. My guy only charges for labor, and you pay for materials. Not to mention my tercel got t-bones.

    3" lift, custom rims, snug top shell, shrockworks bumper, warn winch.
    Carwest in Santa Clara just painted the bumper and body work. Looks great. Not sure what it cost (insurance). A friend who has been doing body work for ever commented that it looked very nice.

    Since they work with mostly insurance companies, I don't expect them to be cheap.
