Default time to trim the rear quarters. Looking for body shop.

After a "fun-filled" drive through the wash of Eagle Canyon in the Swell...I now have a great excuse to get the rear quarters trimmed up like Steve's. Anyone have this done at a local shop? recommendations?

And now the damage pics...

You aren't planning on cutting them all the way up to the fuel door, are you?
West Side Auto Body at W 16th and Jay St has been helpful to me since Rubithon 2013. Father/Son team of ex-Marines that are highly rated on Yelp, too. I'd be happy to introduce you and take Bart over for them to use as a template.

Default you've got a deal!

Thanks Steve! And yeah...they'll have to fix a little more than I had intended. I'm going to take you up on that offer...and connect through PMs.

Default it was an adventure.

I'll put a separate thread together in a couple days. I'll also get pics and video from Dan and Sean. for some reason, there are fewer pictures as the trip went on. Kurt, Micah, and the rest of the Wasatch guys...we can't express the enough gratitude for your help out there. stay tuned. here are some teaser shots.

Sorry to report that Westside Auto Body, that I touted earlier in this thread, is no longer in business. Cheeseman informed me that he had gone by, on my recommendation, and left a note and made calls that were not responded to. Curious, I went by several days ago and found that a different group is occupying the space formerly run by WAB and operating under a different name. Sorry to see a great little shop close up and now the search is on for another small place that does good work at fair prices. I know of several that don't fit that description so if you find a shop that does, post up, please!

That's sad to hear. I think Carlton did the work on his/my 60 there as well (?). I'll check to confirm.
