... I'll second Ti's recommendation ... I've had two experiences with A-B
Body Shop and both were excellent.  The most recent was the V8 which had a
bit of nose touch up (it is the Amarena Mica Pearl Effect) ... I wanted to
get the signs of abuse from driving in Colorado winters taken care of in
addition to the results of a minor nose tap ... the guy I worked with at A-B
did a great job of working with me to minimize the amount I had to pay for
the extra work ... and with the exception of one small run I found later
(which they probably would have fixed if I took it back to them) you would
have a tough time telling that the car had been painted ... much less that
the tip of the front quarter panel above the corner marker was folded under.
