New England Shops

I know majority of people on this forum are DIYers when it comes to modifications on their cars. But for those of us who arent DIYers i was wondering if we could start a thread for some reputable shops in New England.


Can anyone recommend any? Whether is be for painting, or body work, or installation of parts.

i'll start, there is Pro-Spec Auto Sport in Quincy, Mass. I haven't personally bought my vehicle there, but have friends who have. They always do great work and always have great customer service.

Any others?

I would still give Brian a call at Granite State, but you could also give Dana a call at ProTree Performance as well:

ProTree Performance
120 Ferry Street
Hudson NH 03051
603-886-0827


ProTree Performance

Dana's shop does imports as well as domestics, but I have been informed that his shop is more geared toward domestics. When I took my car there the first time he had a 90s Camaro they were tuning that came in at over 800whp. They do all kinds of other work too and AFAIK can get you hooked up with a great paint shop. Dana may remember me too if you mention me since I believe I am the only Yaris they have had come through there with serious mods.

I think that a lot of us do it ourselves. Another thing as well is that over the last couple years the NE members have seemed to dropped off a bit. The platform is going on 7+ years old now and the love it seems for the Yaris has diminished.
