    Body Shop Recommendation in North Jersey?

    Can anyone recommend an exceptional body shop in North Jersey? I took my car (Black C2S) to the track last weekend (1st time) and got several chips in the bumper and hood. Unfortunately, I don't think they are going to buff out and I am going to need some repainting--which I'm not very happy about... Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Re: Body Shop Recommendation in North Jersey?

    Have you considered looking for a really good detailer that can touch-up the chipped spots? I've seen cars that were touched up before and couldn't even find the spot after it was fixed, and the car would still pass a paintmeter test... Don't know of any shops that can do a good job with this though, the people I know who've done this, did it themselves using the "toothpick trick"

    don't even think about repainting. chip repairs are very easy to do. refer to the following link for detailed diy steps.

    if you are the superpicky type, have your entire car wet-sanded to level the paint.

    paint chips are common on all porsches driven on a regular basis due to the shape of the car and the soft factory paint.

    one other tip - if you are nervous about wet sanding the area, buy a junkyard body part to practice on or have a detailer do the work.
