About Dean Thomas

"From the Owner, Dean Thomas
I was born and raised in Centerville. My dad and I were always working on cars when I was a kid, and once I got my driver’s license I got a couple cars of my own to work on. I really focused on making them look pretty, and that’s how I got started with auto body and paint. I still love taking a bent up old car and making it look perfect again. After studying automotive technology in college, I got a job at a local repair shop but was never satisfied with their standards of service so I opened Deano’s Body Shop. From our humble beginnings in a rented building we purchased the property where we are now located, and added a 5-bay mechanic shop with separate space for detailing. I’m proud to say I’ve been serving my hometown for over 30 years"
