Default Paint shop recommendation - North County

Hey junkies. Been a long time since I have been on here. I used to have an 02 bugeye wagon all modded out, went to some meets and met some cool folks.

I was laid off and forced to sell my car. I parted it out and swore I would never do all that again, but of course I have had a 2008 WRX hatch for about a year and I am thinking of getting the front end repainted. The rest of the panels and paint are cherry minus a chip here and there.

I got a few quotes to replace front bumper (pitting is seriously bad) and paint it along with the hood and front fenders. The quotes were for about $2400 for all four panels. Just to replace and paint the bumper is $760.00 using an OEM Subaru bumper.

I can't find anything recent here or on NASIOC, so I am looking for a new referral. It needs to be local in North County and TJ is not an option.

All advice welcome, but don't say upgrade the power. I am planning on a Cobb/Perrin CBE or TBE next year after the extended warranty is up.

Oh, I also want to get an unpainted STI spoiler done at the same time since the paint on my spoiler is fading away to nothing.

Cash is doable depending on estimate and if he is cool with me buying the OEM bumper and spoiler.

Some time in June, but no real hurry since I have to move on June 1st. If I can secure an estimate and time frame for the work, then I will buy the parts and schedule it.

Basically, "take my money" before I spend it on power mods.

Thanks for the help King!
