Especially if this is your first time working on an Elise, I would work with WireWheel and not against them. They have the resources to get it done cheaper than you can unless you paint and do fiberglass (FYI the Elise is a non-traditional method and has to be repaired differently from Exiges, Corvettes, boats, etc). Even if you could do all the work yourself, I still bet it would at best cost the same but take much longer and much more trial and error.
Speaking as a guy who bought a rebuilt car from a guy who did all the work himself, there are tons of do's and don't's that you need to be mindful of.
