I've dealt with RAPCO extensively and found him to be very reasonable
on parts prices. He price on paint is about the best around. I've used his
paints on two of my vehicles and there are four or five other vehicles
here in town with his paint. Very good quality and no problems. I highly
recommend Mark Dodd at RAPCO.
