bbs350z - we are going to have to try to pull together an event, or some excuse to go for a drive before you leave!

Afex - I will add the Green Exige later tonight.

We really need to start leaving notes for this thread on these unknown cars to get the owners to chime in!

too bad it just started warming up, I could have used the AZ weather a few weeks ago!

If A1 didn't work, I have always heard good things about Racine Autobody out on Hwy 20, just past Razor Sharp. They handled the hail damage on an Evo for me years ago and it looked great, but I have no direct experience with their fiberglass work.

Gentile Honda actually has their own body shop and somehow they used to do all of the body work on the Ferrari Daytona replicas used in the Miami Vice tv series. The marketing spin was tha they were the best body shop in the country, but I have no idea how that actually came to be. That was also a long time ago, but they had someone who did a lot of fiberglass at some point.

In the end, your best bet might be to put together a deal with Yellow99S, take a Friday off of work, drive out to IA on Thursday night and hang out down that way for a while and help him do the repair. You could also bring it down to him and rent a car then go back and get it when it's ready. Those assume that he's up for it, of course.

A1 said that they weren't comfortable doing a repair on the car and wanted to remove the aluminum that meets up with the panel. Of course that luminum is riveted and glued to the chassis.

Right now I am thinking about bringing the car to a boat repair shop, since it seems most auto body shops are all about replacing parts and not repairing.

You have a PM!

hey Rob, have you decided if you're going through insurance for this yet?
It looks like it will be quite expensive, so yeah insurance will be getting involved. I just need some free time to get all this crap done right now...
