Need referrals from So Cal Family

I've decided on my hood and fascia upgrades. The hood is from MPD1 and the fascia from Unrestricted Motorsports. The hood is designed to work with my CAI Inc intake. Obviously these will need to be painted but I'm not comfortable installing them. Who would you guys and gals recommend to do the work?

Don't it? The slot is opened up on finished hood for functionality.The plexi glass is removed from the top of the air box and a seal placed around the opening to mate with the hood when closed.

Nice looking hood. I would suggest Louder than Life. They just finished the pearl yellow car with plenty of mods, and it looked like it was going to SEMA. They're over in Yorba Linda though. Dunno how far from Torrance it is.

I Would recomend Lanzini's in Huntington Beach. Mitch is the owner and a great friend. You will recognize his shop from Overhaulin as the painter for Chips cars. They work together (down the street from Foose Design, both of which I work with), and the best part is his prices are resonable, top quality work, multi award winner and quick turn around. Tell him John from Automotive Detailing Specialists sent you

Maybe the install won't be as bad as matching the paint. A color like mine might not be the simplest to get an exact match on

Oh, and there's a girl here at work that has a Gun Metal Grey Mustang that had some (very needed) paint work done. They matched the color right down to the last spec. She said she would bring me their business card tomorrow, so I'll have the information for you next Tuesday
