Nate - an excellent painter/body man that I have used several times is Montebello Auto Center on Whittier Blvd in Montebello. The owner is Joe Ortega. Joe has painted several 123 cars for me and his work is outstanding. Not cheap, but the best.

Exclamation Painters

Having had one 300CD ruined by an excellent painter who didn't understand the W123 series I am skittish about letting anyone touch this car of mine .

I had to sell the other one with it's $2,500 no body work needed paint job because they damaged it so badly .

I have no intention of letting go of my current CD .

Thanks for the tips.

I'd still like to know who painted this white car .

Lovely, artistic photos ! .
