need to find an affordable body shop in the NYC area

I have a few annoying thing that need to be done.

Adjust drivers door (it sometimes takes three times to shut).
Lock cylinder moves when I turn the key, this needs to be stationary.
Change bolts to stainless on all doors.
Install new hinges on rear door.
Put back the screw into the steering column, I took them out to fix light switch, I can't put two back in.

Either a body shop or someone close by who can do it for me for $.

PS: don't say its easy and do it yourself, I'm not capable.

Thank you.

Its a good time to switch to crew neck as well.

I think Ronnie is looking for someone to do it for him ... what about the dude in Queens Jorge was using?

I will be home on a Saturday in Mid December. If you can cross the GWB we can take care of it. I am in Bergen county. Or check with TDI guy in Paramus.

I'll be back in town in mid December as well. We can probably coordinate this with the Happy Hour in NJ, and I'd be more than willing to head out there to Tom's, wrench on your truck for 5 minutes to get all this done, then go to the bars.

Sounds like 8 December or 15 December. We can then head over to the Miller ale house in Paramus.
