Brad- Was it soda or sand blasting? Does he do paint?

I was waiting to get my tundra back to chime in on this.

Jesse at ATLR recommended Camaro's Plus in Wheat Ridge after I dented my passengers side rear quarter on my 2006 Tundra. Just got it back and I have been impressed with the shop and the work. They are a small family owned shop off of 44th and Pierce. Steve is the owner. Despite the name they work on all makes and models. Steve had about 10 60s Camaro's in various states of restoration, but he also has 5 or 6 60s mustang's in the shop, I saw one 50s T-bird as well. Point is he is not adverse to working on just about anything. About 1/3 of his business is fixing dents and such on modern cars, the other 2/3 is restoration on classics. I don't think he would have any problem doing paint and body work on an old FJ40. As far as price, he was cheaper than the mega-body shop down the road.

Everybody likes pictures so here is a couple of a mustang he is taking to Mecum soon. If you ask me that front clip is sitting a little too close.

I'd have to dig up the receipts, but I believe it was somewhere around $800-$1000 for everything (tub, frame, wheels, fenders, hood, doors, misc brackets).

They do use different media depending on what part is being blasting and the thickness of the metal (wheels were sand, hood was plastic beads). Not sure if they offer soda blasting or not?

They don't do any paint work, only blasting.

Called Camero's- to paint a FJ62 that needs no prep or blasting - 7-10 grand, full paint and prep etc... 15k. 6 month back log.

I had mentioned that I did not a resto job- just a decent job that kids could ding with bikes, wife could door ding and I could "scratch".

Wow.

Anyone have any good suggestions to throw in here? Trying to line up a budget.

I was hoping to stay closer to Denver as the truck is already in pieces.
