Repair shops in Denver area

Someone ran into the back of my Elise on Sunday.

The damage doesn't appear to be all that substantial (fingers crossed) but I need to take it to a repair place to have it inspected. AAA didn't think any of their shops handled fiberglass work so they said I could research places that would.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

@rtg54 - I've used

Apex Auto Body
5809 W Colfax Ave
Lakewood CO 80214
(303) 462-2739

They did some rust repair (steel panel fab, which not every shop will do) and panel repainting on several vehicles for me and I liked the quality of their work. They usually have Porsches and Ferraris in the shop, and I have seen some fiberglass work in progress. That said, the particular tech that did my work has moved out of state. If they aren't qualified to do your repair, I think they'd tell you. EDIT: I just talked to Randy at Apex (the owner) and fiberglass repair is within their expertise.

I'd also check with

Ferrari, Bentley & Lotus Of Denver
(303) 462-2739

and see who they use.

This guy is amazing. Check to see if he does fiberglass, but I bet he does. If you've ever been to the ACC car show you've probably seen his booth.

I 2nd Apex. Definitely talk with Randy or Dave. They did the work on a 67 Elan I restored a couple years ago. They also did my 73 BMW CSL (all metal) prior to that. For ultra high-end (concours) work contact Tony Martin at Rallye Coachworks. He's just off S. Santa Fe near Belleview. rallyecoachworks.com, seven two zero-232-0 nine, nine, eight.
