1-Day Paint & Body Center

By playerpage on Wed 05 February 2014

Went in without expecting the moon (that's the key, after all this is a discount shop) and came out with more than I could have dreamed! The shop is great, and very professional. They don't just glance at your car and give you a price. Full walk-around. My 1965 Corvair had been really crunched in a wreck, and they were honest with me and friendly. They also fixed spots they hadn't caught in the original estimate (for free)! Wilson, the manager, kept me updated almost daily and was friendly every time I called him. He even did a drive-by of a car with a similar paint style to what I wanted to make sure he was getting it right. In the end the car looked fantastic, and even though I can tell it wasn't a $5000 paint job the body work alone was worth the $1300 cost. (That's paint and fixing a LOT of rust and major dents from the wreck.) The run-down of the service center on this site is inaccurate. I can't vouch for "Mitchell or Chilton" labor standards, but 1-Day (at least this Orange location) does provide early drop-off, Shuttle Service, and (for a fee) rental car referrals.
