I am assuming that you already have the skills to do paint and body work. If that is the case I would strongly recomend that you work for a paint and body shop for 2 years before you decide to open your own shop. This experience will stear you around the many pitfalls of running your own business which will make you much more successfull. There is a lot more to it than what appears on the surface.

Also, those two years wil help you establish connections, not to mention the customers you can sway your way when you go out on your own.
