Putting a dent in your car or truck means you need to call Frank Smith Body Shop in Houston.

Smith has more years in the auto repair business than he want to think about, but that expertise and knowledge of fixing bent automobiles makes him one of the best bodymen around.

Frank Smith Body Shop bills itself as a full-service body shop and can straighten frames, replace car windows and windshields and mend or replace plastic parts. They can also fix those doors on vans and car that no longer work.

The crew at Frank Smith Body Shop uses the latest materials and also repairs fiberglass bodies and replaces plastic molding.

“I’ve been at this location for 25 years and have been straightening and painting cars for much longer than that,” said Smith. “Having a wreck or putting a dent in your new car is not a good thing. We work hard to put a smile on people’s face when they come back to pick up their car or truck.”

Smith said he works will all insurance companies and guarantees good work at a fair price.

But Smith said his specialty is matching paint. He pointed out lots of people can spread bondo and spray paint, but getting your vehicle to look like it did before your wreck requires a professional.

“You have to have a talent for matching paint and I am proud to say my son is one of the best in the business,” said Smith. “Our name is on this business and we do our best to satisfy every customer that walks in the shop.”

The business also sells and can mount toolboxes for pickups. They install vent-visors on the doors of automobiles. They can also install brush guards and off-road accessories on most trucks.
