About Us

Quality Repairs & Restoration for over 30 Years!

Santa Barbara Auto Refinishing was started in 1979 by the present owner, Walter Danalevich, as a 1,200 sq. ft. auto body shop. Just 10 years later, we moved into our current custom built auto body repair facility as a result of satisfied customers and our superior auto body repairs and high attention to customer service.

Our current facility was built specifically to handle all phases of auto body repair, auto restorations, custom auto painting, auto collision repair, auto repair and custom fabrication. We have serviced thousands of makes and models throughout the greater Santa Barbara, Montecito and Goleta, California area.

We offer excellent customer service, prompt turnaround times and free auto repair pickup and delivery within a 25-mile radius of our shop. With over 30 years of experience, we welcome your car and all auto insurance claims.
