    I have an older (28 years old now) car that needs a little help in the rust department. Nothing that is totally rotten by any means but for where the repair area is I am not sure of my welding skill to not make a mess of things. Cosmetically I am not seeking a concours level of perfection but something that looks respectable for a cruiser that gets driven every day.

    I drive by the place in Oakville called "Artworks-n-motion" almost every day. Seems legitimate as they have been there for some time now.

    Or someone who runs out of their garage ? Not looking a hack-n-pack job here.

    the one I am personally familiar with and high;y recommend is Shaffer Restorations, but they are in Hagerstown, a big hump for you from SoMD.

    It’s been a year or so ago but saw the shop when I was picking up some flooring from a place all the way in the back. Looked like mostly muscle cars in the shop and outside.

    *****Bring lots of money. That being said, they do very good work. Don't be in a hurry to get your vehicle back if you want a good job done though. Any place that is good will be pretty booked up at this time of year.

    I saw some nice work done by art works back when they were in Mechanicsville. I would imagine they still do good work.

    I can’t recommend any body in particular. Lots of back yard guys around that will do good work, just be ready to wait.

    Everybody that does good work is very busy. People can’t find the new vehicle they want at the price they want. Everyone is fixing everything.

    Very true. Most of my stuff is old ancient junk by now but still runs well and until some magic mileage gain can be had that does not include a electric plug in I see no reason to sign up for another payment plan.
