HELP: Know a Good Body Shops?

I'm not going to get into great details about my lack of luck with motor vehicles last week, long story made short...

Got a speeding ticket on the bike last wednesday... got hit by a 19 year old in my car on Saturday.

So... I need to know if anyone can recommend a good body-shop. The damage to my car is minimal, but it will go through insurance. Preferably in the Western Suburbs/ NW Burbs.

Thanks guys!

Patrick Body shop does great work. They are primarily for BMW and Mercedes and stuff since the owner also owns the Patrick BMW down the street. But anyway they do great work. The guys there hooked me up on my evo when i had hail damage. They are in schaumburg.

J&L Autobody in CrestHill. John is the owner. It's where I take all my work and he even custom painted my truck and 929RR.

Let me know if you want anymore info.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Sucks to hear... I Don't know any good ones, but stay away from CarStar... They are a bunch of morons over there.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

I have one or you. Neat Street II up in aurora re painted my black infiniti 2 years back and did an excellent job. they are a state farm prefered body shop, and all the high end dealers go to them, they alwasy have porsches, benz's etc lined up out side. excellent work. its just north of 88 on the exit just west of 59 I think its farmingon or farns something.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

castens is not that good...my mom took her lincoln in there and they didnt sand the light amount of bondo they had done to it...and you can see the f'n grooves from the 100 grit they used...those guys are a bunch of monkeys...

my buddy john petersen owns petersens autobody in schaumburg...they were the ones that painted my bike in my avitar and currently are doing work to my 1969 chevelle SS...they are also a state farm + facility and are the best in the area...they dont cut corners...and if there is something not perfect about the car...it wont be released until you like it...they are the only ones i take any car of mine too...

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!
