Anyone know of any excellent body shops in the area (no, not strip clubs, auto body shops ;) ). Lookinf for a place that can actually match a paint color.

Yes, Stalevar autobody in Arlington Heights. Prices are insanely cheap and the quality of work is very high. They painted and repaired both of my bumpers after an accident and you can't tell they were ever touched. Generally, you're looking at about $150.00 for a bumper to repair and repaint it.

I don't, but I'll stop by there tomorrow and get his number. He's done work on a couple of my cars and I've never been dissapointed. He also takes the time to explain how long it will take to cure, and what you can and can't do while waiting for that to happen.

He does a lot of custom work too.
