With paint & body work, you pretty much get what you pay for. At least at a shop you do. If you can find someone to do it on the side you could get a better price and still good work, but in terms of good shops, there are 2 that I reccomend.
1) Kompact Cars in Millestone. Right off of exit 16 on 195 across 537 from Jackson outlet mall behind accurate automotive. They do the best work I have ever seen, but they are expensive. They remove EVERYTHING from the car. Trim, windows, mirrors, you name it they take it off before they paint.
2) R&A Auto Body on Tennant Road in Morganville. This place isn't as expensive, but they don't take as much stuff off the car. The good thing about this place though is that Andy, the painter there, is a total perfectionist.
