    Looking for suggestions for a paint shop in the DC Metro Region

    I'm looking at getting either paint restoration or new paint for my 1990 M3 in Zinnoberrot Red, if anyone has a recommendation, it would be greatly appreciated.

    The DC Metro Region is immense, so I'm not sure where you't located. The most recent recommendations were for Euro Pros in Gaithersburg or D&V Autobody in Dulles.
    I don't think Zinnober was originally clear-coated, so if it's just faded/oxidized a pro polishing can make it look like new. There are good detailers on both sides of the river, so your location can help us direct you.

    Thanks for responding. I live in the Fairfax, VA area. I've used Pro Clean in Tyson's a couple of times, with good results but that was more of a detail shop. I have some fading, cracking of the rear spoiler, and scratches along the door edge. The hood is fading a bit. I would like to try to restore before biting the bullet on a full paint job.

    Brian Lewis at American Shine or Darryl Nichols at Odd's & Ends, both off Rt. 28 in Dulles/Sterling area, offer paint correction that can do wonders with fading & many scratches. Obviously deep scratches & cracks would be dealt with differently - Kevin at D&V could help you with that.

    Darryl and Odds and Ends have a close relationship with D&V. You can drop the car with Darryl and he can coordinate any work that might be required at D&V. One stop shopping. Makes it easier to deal with one shop and one point of contact vs. several.

    Just my .02.
