Any good paint/body shops in the Tyler/Longview area?

I've got a couple of vehicles in need of some TLC in the paint and body dept, and I need some advice on the best place to take them. Anyone have any ideas?

A buddy of mine has been doing custom paint, but his new shop is not quite off the ground yet.
what do you do? Where is your shop?

To the original poster:
I would not recommend CPR, unless something has changed from the last time I checked out their shop about 1 year ago.

I have used carl owens before. I really like them. They had great customer service, good communication, and the paint they were fixing was not factory, but they got it right. So, one vote for carl owens.

Bishop's shop is located just down the street from us. He has seen it, and i suppose he will do it if the money is right

BTW, best damn work you will find in the paint department, Bishop's Graphix

I seem to remember them re-doing a Shelby or two and being mentioned in magazines as a result...
