Looking for a body shop in North Carolina
« on: December 15, 2017, 07:51:19 PM »
Hi all,

It's been a few years since I've posted in here.  I am getting the itch again!

I am looking for recommendations for a body shop in the Raleigh or Sanford NC area. I have a '54 60 Special and am looking for a shop to do body and paint. She is a great 20-footer, but once you get close you can see it's a tired quickie '80s paint job.

I already did everything under the hood. Rebuilt motor and trans, everything under there is restored/refurbished/repainted. But I'm definitely not a bodywork guy. To cut costs or time,  I could do the grunt work (sanding, etc).

Let me know if you know a restoration shop, or even a collision/body shop that will take a side project.

I currently live in Connecticut but plan on moving soon down toward that area to be nearer my parents and some other family. I am really hoping to bring the car down this winter ahead of my move.

Thanks!

I have brought the old girl to my parents' place in Sanford, North Carolina. Still no good leads on a place to do paint, chrome and interior.

Anyone?

Wish I knew of a guy for ya Bob. I'll ask around some more. One option is to call some clc members in and around that area. I would think that is your best bet.

 Thanks Lou,

I'm going to talk to a couple places that look good from online searches, but personal recommendations are big to me.  I tried emailing a local CLC chapter a couple weeks back but haven't gotten a reply. I'll try to find another way to contact them.
