Recommended Body Shop Cincy??

Hey all.
Last night my gf's neighbor rubbed my car while backing out. Doesn't look dented but she will be needing some paint. Any suggestions in the Cincinnati area?? I've tried a couple of paint shops in the area, once for a car another for a bike tank, but the quality was poor. Al help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks.
-Jack

What part of town are you in? I sell collision parts for a living and deal with a bunch of great body shops on a daily basis.

Re: Recommended Body Shop Cincy??

Thanks for posting this thread Jack. My father-in-law rubbed AND dented my wifes car this weekend! She has an Audi with the pearl paint. I too need a great car shop to do the repair. Does anyone know of a specialist in the way of factory pearl paint jobs? I'm going to check out the places you all suggested. Thank you for your help.

Dave Orr's body in madisonville. They do all the work for the BMW store and do it very well. I have had 2 BMW's and a Toyota worked on there and it has always been excellent.

I'll have to second the vote for Dave Orr's. I have worked hand in hand with that shop for over thirty years and can state they are one of the best in the area.

Re: Recommended Body Shop Cincy??

Wonder Years in Batavia! My friend owns the shop. Their main focus is restoration and custom work, but they are more than happy to take on standard paint and body work. Larry Zimmer is the owner. He can sometimes even work it out where they do the work on the weeked so that you don't have to miss work while you car is being fixed.
Tell Larry that I sent ya!

Re: Recommended Body Shop Cincy??

I know it's about impossible to match pearl paint. Do you know of a place that's better than the rest in the Pearl (Audi) match up?

Re: Recommended Body Shop Cincy??

I dont post on here often, I lurk but I will post on this toppic

Specialty Auto body and paint 984-0315 ask for steve, they are over near blue ash on the Deer Park side.

they did my moms Camry's wheel wells 7 yrs ago, not a seam has popped nor has the paint blend shown, they have fixed my f150 2x from a tree branch and crappy factory work, they are getting ready to do my dads wheel wells on his 92 celica, they are a small shop but do some FANTASTIC work at about the most fair price I have ever encountered, they even came back and lessened the cost of the camry work cause they found patch panels instead of having to get entire quarter panels.

I cant say enough (dont work there, only an aquaintance of the guy) and trust them with everything I own. dont judge the shop on its looks its 2 guys w 2 small buildings but they do fantastic work
