Getting some paints

Hi everyone

First post to the forum. I've recently bought a beat up RSX-S and decide to make it look all nice and clean again. I've heard of a few places around Bby area that may be good. So I will be getting some quotes soon (maybe update this post once I do).

A few pics of the areas that I plan on painting on are attached. (numbered based on priority as I understand them...)

#1 The side door has a crack with rust - and it's not visible from photo but the door does not align exactly with the body - a few mm difference. Rusts grow, so this is the top of my list.

#2 Hood has spots of rusts like mad. Another priority.

#3 Bumper scuff. Why is it not aligned with the tail light?

#4 and #5 are minor.

So far I've talked to Boyd, which has a rep that seems to know what he's talking about - and sounds like they are using some good techniques (to a layman like me). I have forgot to mention the #1, though for some reason - need to get back again.

Will probably update some more. Comments welcome.

After visiting Boyd and AK Autoworks in Burnaby and getting their quotes - it seems that their pricing are quite consistent.

Front hood / bumper - around $700
Rear bumper - around $600
Both places mentioned that the side door crack being the most trickiest - AK is quoting $1300 - and Boyd manager is offering $1000 if this work is done in conjunction with the bumper.

To be honest, I really just want to find a place that does the job right. Any feedback on either of these two places? If they have a good reputation with cleaning up rusted spots, that would be even better, as these things seem to come back.

That's a pretty straight forward rust repair, both places should be able to fix the problem.
