Joseph Neri on Facebook does great work. Most of the others that I would recommend are all either way too busy or entirely too busy.

Personally I wasn’t all that excited with my Trung body. It has a lot of errors in the masking. A nice body for sure, but not worth what he was charging.

I hear what you're saying, they were OK bodies, I actually like to race them so I try to strike a balance between how much I pay and need for perfection.

I think that’s where you will like others like Joseph. They charge a fair rate and do quality work. I’m pretty sure Joey JK Racing uses him exclusively if you want more references.

I've considered painting and selling a couple bodies on ebay. The issue is after the cost of the body, paint, masking etc, I'm not sure its worth my time. Would I be out of line to ask how much you guys were paying for a painted body?

$100 on average I would say was the EBAY average. When I got them for $75 I was happy. Andy's seems to sell his very cheap though I think he has it down to a science.

I bought a couple of “gonracing” Trung Au bodies, I don’t think he washed the release agent off or he didn’t prep the bodies prior to painting them, the paint peeled off real easy. He does a decent job but should be prepped better for the price.

Neri quoted $60 and up depending on complexity with a customer supplied buggy body. Also said shipping is usually included depending on location.
