John Harris Body Shop
I took my Lexus to John Harris for a bumper that needed to be replaced. It took me 3 times coming back to get it correctThe 1st time there was a run. When I took it back they sanded it down and botched the repair so I had to bring it back again for them to fix itDuring the two times I brought it back I did not get any updatesSteer clear they don't care about the quality

Baker Collision Express
How incredibly disappointing to pick up the vehicle to find they didn't do everything they said they would. So many of these places do a half a-- job, and this is one more to add to the list.

Baker Collision Express
What can I say, Baker Collision was fantastic the time I walked into the door till the time I picked up my car. Stephen went well beyond my expectations to make sure my Infiniti was done according to Infinities' OEM specifications. I highly recommend Baker Collision for any car especially if you have a premium car. Infiniti and a lot of new cars are now coming from the factory with a special scratch shield clear coat. The car manufacturers requires that the OEM special clear coat be applied if any body work were to be done. I went to three different body shops and Baker was the only one that understood this. I spoke with 2 Summit offices and they were absolutely 100% unprofessional. Rude and refused to apply the appropriate CC. The one in Irmo said I was stupid for getting the coating. He didn't even know that this was a factory coating. The Summit out on Clemson said all clear coats are the same and didn't care what Infiniti says. "I refuse to change my way of doing things" he said. D Smith Auto Body said there wasn't such a clear coat. I was amazed a Infiniti dealer didn't even know. http://www.nissan-global.c om/EN/TECHNOLOGY/OVERVIEW/scratch.html
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
