Where to Paint?

I am new to this Forum, and am wondering if anyone can recommend a good/reasonable painter in my area. I live in Orange, CA. Many thanks for any input!

The trick is to go to car shows swap meets and other car gatherings where you can see the paint jobs and ask around..Takes some time and shoe leather..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Looking for painter

I think it really all comes down to how much your are willing to pay. There are tons of shops in Orange/La County. I would try going to the Pomona Auto Swap meet next Sunday and ask around.
