    I debated whether to put this in the Regional area, but that was under the subheading of MC riding.

    My goal right now is to find an honest body shop for my 2005 Tacoma Pickup. I don't have any major damage - just minor scrapes and scratches from careless people in parking lots.

    I'd like to get it fixed before I put on a camper top.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Had one good experience with Bodywork by R&C on Central and Eubank. Very friendly staff, very professional results. I did NOT have paint work done, but a tweaked frame fixed along with replacement of a whole slew of parts on the front end of my wife's Xterra :baldy

    Sniper! Sorry to hear about the Focus! Fucking IDIOT drivers in this state.

    Thank you for all the recommendations.

    And sorry about being rear-ended Sniper. I'll look forward to hearing how well the job is done for you.

    I need some paint touch-up and a weird dent (that is hard to see) taken out on the side. It makes no sense to me how someone hit me there in a parking lot, and I'm not sure when it happened. :scratch

    Has anyone heard about "Dent Express" on Candelaria? I'm ordering a camper top for my truck, and "Topper Town," in Albuquerque recommended them.

    "Topper Town" in Albuquerque has a great selection of cab tops for Pickups. And the service was great.

    I wasn't thrilled with "Dent Express." They did a decent job on a dent, but not so much on matching paint. However, when they got it out in the sun - they did see that the paint they had used was too dark themselves, and worked to finish it. Yet I did get the feeling that they would have let me drive off with it like that, had I not said something.

    It is always difficult matching paint.

    It is, and I have yet to take my Focus in so don't know yet. I may just do what everyone lese here does. Take it and have it appraised and keep the check till I decide to have it fixed.

    They stated that silver and gold vehicles are the toughest to match.

    And white and black are obviously the easiest.

    Is your vehicle silver or gold?
