Brooks Orange Body and Paint in Orange, CA

Does New Line Collision work on older Mercedes?

I have a 1991 560SEL that has a scratch on the flexible plastic air dam below the bumper. I took it by Caliber Collision and Sterling Collision in Tustin today and they both said they don't work on older cars.

I am looking for a place who can do a good paint match.
Thanks
Mark
I recommend Brooks Orange Body and Paint. They perfectly color matched the plastic front bumper including the air dam on my '95 S500. My car is white so it's easier to color match than metallic paint but I'd give them a call.

Another vote for Maurice's:
"Mercedes repair by Maurice" at 947 W 18th Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92627
Info from their website: mercedezrepair.com [email protected]

They treated my wife and I with respect and handled our repairs in a fair way rather than the too-often replace the most expensive stuff first approach. Good job!

Anaheim Mercedes Repair

What about Anaheim, anybody there?
Hi PetrFin,

Here is a shop that I have used on my 210:

Johnson Motor Cars  
982 N Batavia St # B13, Orange, CA 92867
Phone: (714) 997-2567

I have had them do motor mounts on my W210 Wagon along with some other small stuff. Very reasonable and seemed honest and enthusiastic about MBs. (I even remember chatting with him about my dream car: a W140 !

MB Elite in Newport Beach did good work in getting my CLK on it's feet. As a bonus, they are very fair with their pricing and really went the extra mile.

MBElite Service

Thanks for the suggestion. Transmeister took care of a PLIL based leak and tranny service, including draining the torque converter, for me today. A fair price and smooth experience from someone who specializes in German transmissions.
Sadly, the owner of this shop has retired Transmeister

Hey, those in Anaheim/Huntington Beach/Buena Park PM me I am looking for a shop to cure paint cancer for my S500, as well as replacing shocks. Was thinking about doing it myself, unfortunately I don't have garage/shop/place to do it. I also have an RV that I'm working on, anyone has or knows where I could rent a space or a small one lift shop?
