    Someone did a hit and run on my 2013 Infiniti G37 and was wondering if you guys know of a good body shop to take it to and how much it will cost to get fixed?

    Heres a picture of the damage

    Frank's and Bates is pretty good down on east side. You'll have to take your car for an estimate. That looks like 2k give or take 500 from the looks of it. I'm no repairman for what it's worth... good luck

    That does not qualify for a hoodoo slab.

    Cleverly disguised "Look at me, I'm a baller with my G37" thread. :grin:

    JK

    Awaiting the recommendations on here because normally I use Apollo paint and body.

    I drove a beat up 1967 Caddilac when I made this screen name and thought it was time for an upgrade. I bought this car last week, should've stuck with my slab.

    How's Apollo's work? I have one near my house.

    Looks like the door skin will need to be replaced at the very least. May possibly need to replace the whole door shell since it looks like the intrusion beam may be bent. Due to white paint, they will need to blend paint into the fender and quarter. Rocker molding looks like it has paint damage as well.

    File under your uninsured motorist coverage since it was a hit and run. $250 deductible and you can fix it right. UM claims are no fault claims and shouldnt affect your rates.

    Hope that helps.

    Go to eBay auto parts, and see if they have the door in the same color.

    I guess it depends on which one you go to and who is managing it.
    The one I've been to in the Sugarland area was ok. I thought it was kinda pricy but after getting quotes from other body shops in the SW area, Apollo's price was just about the same. They did a good job on it.

    Hopefully for this one you won't need to go to a body shop unless you're filing under UM. Maybe paulnhbtx's guy can get you a good price to fix it.

    Thanks, I did this.. I need to send some paperwork to my insurance company and to file an incident report with the police so I can get this deductible.

    Thanks, I tried to look but didn't find much
    Thanks, they didn't have what I was looking for. For sure will be using them for extra parts that I need in the future.
    Yes please can you give me it.
    Thank you!

    LOL, that might require a new door skin. No way paintless.
