HELP need a new paintjob...

Anybody know a good place to go about repainting my truck?

I don't need the whole thing repainted, just over the wheel wells right now..... I tried to do some touch up painting and now it looks like ****, so I'm cracking open the wallet...

A friend of mine mentioned this place in Marion that'd paint a vehicle for $99, I'm a little doubtful as to what a $99 paint job looks like, but right now, anything will do... Anybody know the name of this place?

Anything in Eastern Iowa that you know of helps, I'm not too worried about driving to find a place, I just hate having a truck that looks like crap....

HELP, please.
Thanks y'all

These days, I'm not sure you could even rattle-can a vehicle for $99.

Discount Autobody, on the back of Zimmerman-Houdak's lot, is advertising $799 paint-jobs. They seem to do pretty good work for the money.

The worst paint-jobs I've seen came out of one of the biggest advertisers in the area -- getting into a accident may be good for your car, but having rust repaired really screwed her Mustang up.

The only other thing I would suggest is getting "free estimates", and checking out whatever work happens to be sitting on the various lots.

That $99 sounds like Earl Shieb.... from about 25-30 years ago. My son-in-law had to have a bumper cover and a couple small parts painted. They are bright red (red costs more) but still was $250 or so.

Theirs a body shop in Solon called Marks Auto Body. Just thought I'd add to the list of places to check out.

I've heard Mark's in Solon does a good job -- don't know prices, though.

JMS Collision Repair, down here by Williamsburg does an awesome job.
He is pretty reasonable too usually pretty quick unless there is a hard to find part(Contour SVT bumper cover). That is about the only place I trust to do anything that I am not doing, I did my truck at a friend of mines shop but he takes forever to do anything.
He is in the yellow pages(online at least) but if you need his number shoot me a message and I will get it for ya.

Oh and tower...you can rattle can a 54 f100 for under $99, thats what i did when we got my truck to get it all one consitant, non robins-egg blue color.
