A recommendation to do body work?

I used Tom's mate Kiwi but he's up by the tappan zee bridge ... decent price to paint 3 doors.

I went up and met the kiwi last summer. He said he doesn't want to work on them anymore.

Ben share the contact if you can ... There is a deficit of trusted places to get work done and everyone could benefit.

Gladly share it but not on a thread as it is the owner's mobile number (they don't answer the phone at the shop). They work on classic cars as well and the prices are excellent.

Yonkers is about a 15-20 drive once you get to the Major Deegan.
