View Full Version : Recommendations on bodywork?

So my 59 TR 3a got back into last week and the nose is damaged. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good body shop around the Sacramento area?

The guys who did the body work and paint on this car BCF TR3 Hot Rod (https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcforum/ubbthreads.php/topics/851386/Re_1_HOT_TR3#Post851386) and are painting my Bugeye are down here in Oakdale. Let me know if you want to go that far our of Sac. Tinman58 body guys are really good too. They are in Brentwood.

I have a GREAT painter in Roseville, CA. He does excellent work at very reasonable prices. He has painted two cars for me; '66 Mustang fastback, '63 Austin Healey 3000 and he will be painting my newly acquired TR6.

Look at the picture below. The depth is incredible on the paint job he did.

I will send you his contact information via PM.

Much thanks. I am not going to paint it just yet as it needs other work first. I just need someone good to either repair the apron (iffy) or get a new (old) one.

When painting is in order I will look them up. That green looks amazing.

I would go see Troy. He did body work on my mustang that was incredible, by pulling, shrinking he fixed my rear panel that most would have replaced with an aftermarket panel.

PM me if you want me to send you some pics.
