Recs for a New Jersey Paint Shop

I'm going to have the hood painted on my SLK 350, Iridium Silver. There are many little stone dings on the lower front that have been touched up. Looks good from 10 feet away but close up ... ughhh. You know how it is when you know they're there.

Anyway, I've found two possible shops ... one in Plainfield, NJ and one in Netcong, NJ. I realize this is a long shot, but I'm hoping someone in my area may provide a recommendation.

I thought of asking my dealer but that's a last resort.

Cheers,

Steve

Dealer should be the 1st resort. After all they send their cars someplace.

True Jeff, but is it the best place?

you won't know. you could always find out the name(s) of places they use and then solicit reviews of those places from google or patrons that the places would give you.

I just googled 'paint shops' in Plainfield, NJ and you then can get places and see what their reviews are.
