  • Anyone know of any good body work/paint shops close to the Atlanta area?

    My hard tip for my ND will be here either today or tomorrow, and I am wanting to get it painted and car worthy(instead of race worthy)

    I am wanting it to look as factory as possible, and to match my jet black mica paint perfectly. After reviewing the ND hardtop thread on Miata.net, I'm expecting some work will be needed done to the top, such as a little extra sanding and whatnot(see attached pictures of another owners top work). Then the window and seals will need to be installed.

    So, can any of you guys recommend a good body shop that I can trust would be able to do this? Preferably on the south side of Atlanta, but any will do as long as they're confident in their abilities. Thanks!

    belwo are some pictures of a ND top that another owner purchased and had painted soul red. For some reason when I uploaded these pictures they uploaded backwards, and won't let me fix them. But the top comes as shown in the last 2 pictures, and the other pictures show what work needed to be done to it.

    General Collision in Marietta. They painted my orange car and Manuel's white car. The work is top notch.

        Can you not order the top from Mazda in color?

          David,

          unfortunately mazda did NOT make and removable hardtops for the ND. Speculation seems because they have an overflow of NC tops that never sold in Japan. So they were letting the aftermarket take care of that, which they have for the most part. This top I have is made from DG motorsports. There are a few Japanese companies that has made them, but this DG top is the only one made in the US and to me is the one that looks the best currently. If someone comes out with a fastback in the future I'll be getting one of those though...

              I saw Manuel's car just after he had it repainted and that was a beautiful paint job. Worth every penny of the three grand it cost. If you want a factory match, I'd expect a quote of around $600 to do it right.

                I had my hardtop and a rear trunk spoiler matched to my 10AE and 5 years later they are still perfect.
                They used to go by Hot Wheels but because of obvious reasons could not keep using that name.
                John Holt is the owner and they do great work. It cost me about 325 but that was five years ago.

                    that sounds good to me. Honestly I am expecting it to be more. But I'm not a painter and haven't done any body work so I guess my estimates are invalid. All I have to go by is the gentleman that got his painted(the pictures I used above) said it cost him $1,000. However he has the soul red paint and front what I've heard it is extremely hard to match that as it is, so I guess extra work is expected so that's why it was so expensive.
