Good paint shop in VA / Virginia

I am looking for a good and affordable paint shop in Virginia, wondered if anybody can steer me in the right direction.

What part of Virginia are you in? I know a great painter here in East Tennessee, that's painted several cars for me over the last 20+ years. He's hard to get into though, usually has a several week lead time.

Where in VA? A few of us have been to Gott Auto Body in Annapolis. They did my stripes. I was so pleased I gave the painter an extra $100.

Yes, I should have mention this: I live on the northern VA, Loudoun County.
Annapolis is not too bad. How much for the stripes?
Thanks!

I think they charged me right around 1K, but it was a few years back. I remember them being cheaper than some other quotes I had.

It was money well spent. I was sent there by another member here who was sent there by yet another member. Good people, I talked to them for hours to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. They were very helpful and never rushed me at all. If I ever need paint work again, I won't go anywhere else.

Try D and V auto body. They are on 606 in Sterling. I have had work done there and so have some friends. Very reasonable prices and good work.

D&V Autobody in Chantilly. They did my repaint. Kevin is a great guy to work with, even was ok with taking photos to document the whole thing for my build thread.

Bump ... on D& V as they did a great/awesome job on my custom paint. Talk to Ron ....as these guys service a bunch of high end cars. Additionally their stripe and clear - bra service guys are tops!

I'm jelous of people who live outside of the DC area and can get their bumpers painted for less than $200. I have asked a couple of shops around Arlington and Alexandria, and the range of quotes to paint a new ZL1 bumper is $400-$500! And that's with me doing all the installing.
