I need a recommendation for a good and honest 356 restoration shop in southern CA. I have a 1962 S-90 and the person performing the work decided to retire. The car is 85% done. Paint, bodywork and interior have been completed.
Thank you

A few come to mind in no particular order: Shane (Jim) East, Louis Paras, John Willhoit, Jim Gordon. I have not used any of them for body & paint. I used Hung Luu Auto Body in Azusa. I'm sure others will weigh in with their suggestions.

Sounds like it's largely reassembly.
You could try Ed at Klasse in Torrance, Scott's Independent in Anaheim, or Jack Staggs in San Clemente.
