: Need excellent Chicago body shop

12-12-10, 05:30 PM
Hello, I am in need of a top-notch bodyshop in the Chicago area that will work with single-stage paint. I have a '70 Coupe DeVille survivor with original black paint that needs a few minor areas of repair. Can anyone recommend an excellent body shop that's within say 30 minutes of Chicago? Thank you!

To follow up regarding my search for a body shop, I found a place that I am very happy with. It's Forty's Auto Body in Addison, IL. He used the paint I asked for, his body repairs were excellent, and the finish is breathtaking. Richard had me out a couple times to see the progress, and also went the extra mile to rustproof the interior edge of the trunk, where it's prone to rust. I would highly recommend them.

just look for a place that is NOT on any major insurance companies approved list. if they aren't, it's because they refuse to do the shortcuts insurance companies want them to. and that likely means they take pride in their work.
