I brought my 1967 classic car to have the bodywork, primer, complete paint, front cap assembled, and emblems installed. Here is my assessment of crash magic. Pro: price was right and extras were reasonable and warranted. Good quality paint job for the money and in some areas he went above and behind.Cons: first ken does not use a computer. I sent dozens of photos, schematics, and all illustrations needed to complete the car. I did not know he uses a 4 inch screen on his phone for his computer as he did not follow any of them.6 of 12 emblems were not installed. Front bumper brackets were not installed, inner fenders supports were not installed. The parts on the front cap that were installed had most of the bolts loose. After I picked up the car I was forced to disassemble the front cap to install these items and line up the fenders.Ken cut corners on the lower rear panel body work which required more body work and spot paint from another shop.He did not install front grill.Ken does not take notes of what you tell him. I mentioned to him to paint under the roof drip rails on three occasions. Well he refused to and seem surprised every time. I had another body shop to complete the paint on the rails.He did not completely paint the rear spoiler. I had another shop complete the paint.He had the car for over 2 months.The paint had more flaws than I was expecting. 3 of the flaws were bad enough that I paid another shop to fix them. My overall assessment is such: if your modern car needs body and fender work he will do you a good job at a good price. If you have a classic car or in need of a restoration DO NOT bring it to crash magic.

The next weekend after Houdini Finished up on the restoration work I won Top Rod for my vehicle in Willard! Lots a HIGH 5s at NSRA. Great job/Reasonable price for the Quality work completed. Same price when I picked up my car as quoted.NONE OF THE OVER PRICE AND UNDER DELIVER LIKE I FIND HERE IN Springfield to be the normal thing.
Needed bumper repaired after being rear-ended by an SUV with snow-plow attachment. Great service, great results. Repair estimate was best out of three we got. Nic Mertz was a pleasure to work with. Bumper, paint and tail lights look brand new. Would recommend this local business.
Just dropped by to get an estimate for a large scratch on my truck. Definitely going to use Austin's body shop. Very friendly guys. They have a unique, clean office and shop right on Republic road. I felt very welcomed. Can't wait to have that nasty scratch removed.
Nic is fantastic and does fabulous work. Everything we have brought in has looked perfect when they finished. They are so nice and we highly recommend them !!
I recently had Ken and his crew paint my 67 Camaro. They did and excellent job for the money. I will use them again.
Nik and everyone there have always been excellent to work with. Hands down the best in town, I highly recommend!
