Avio Coach Craft. http://www.aviocoachcraft.com/

Depending on where you are in the valley, it's right off the 405 near Olympic.

Not trying to step on anybody's toes, but F1 is a tuning shop first and a paint/body shop second. Auto body and painting is not their specialty. I saw a job they did that was not very impressive.

Avio is expensive, I admit. But they do high-end cars only, and they are a specialty paint shop only.

Do you have any photos of any work they've done? I checked out their website and they just use stock photos. Not for nothing but that is not a good sign when a paint and body shop, especially a high end one, uses generic photos of cars to represent their work.

I've used them twice for body mods. They have a good rep among Porsche, Lambo, Aston, and MB owners.

The website doesn't say much, I agree. Avio Piombetti has been in the biz for 35+ years and opened the shop in West LA about 20 years ago. Long before internet presence was important. (kind of like Lucent Motors whose website has been "under construction" for years )

The only way to know is to go look at the place in person and see what they're doing; just like any kind of shop you might want to use for whatever reason. Internet websites and "photos" are always meaningless. And ask for opinions. Then look at the work in person.
