So yesterday afternoon I gave a call to Mark Chapparone Jr, from Chapparone Auto Body in San Diego. I'm sure the SD locals know about the shop and the great work they do. Well I don't -I've only heard about it from others.
As I was browsing my Instagram feed, Spencer Berke aka "ThatPhotographer," the official Newport Beach Lamborghini photographer, asked people to follow Mark on IG. Now I had done some business on MBworld in the past where I sold my E55 grill to Mark. While that was the only thing we've ever done, it was done smoothly, and I gave him a decent deal. So I figured, why the hell not, let me hit him up and see if he can help me out with my sidemarkers.
So go back to yesterday. Shortly after noon I connect with him. I tell him that I want OEM sidemarkers color matched in Flint grey and I need them by Friday in my hand. Keep in mind i'm in San Luis Obispo, so I'm half way across the state.
He then sends me this picture today, less than 24 hours from initial contact:
Not only did he get the OEM parts form Mercedes-Benz of San Diego, he also shaved off all the numbers and markings normally found on the lens, thus giving it a smooth look, but he also got them painted and ready to go!
They'll be in my hands by Friday, and I can't wait!
Mad props to Mark and his crew!
