New Member - Hello!

Hi there,

I acquired a 72 W108 about a year ago now. She was in beautiful shape, but got rear ended about a month or so back.

Its bodywork only, no frame damage or anything complicated, drives just fine and I can source all the parts from Irvine, and Atlanta, some coming in from Germany. The insurance will pay the full MB parts prices and labor.

I was wondering (and would be extremely grateful) if anyone can recommend a body shop in the Austin, or general TX area. I tried MB Austin, but they consider themselves to not have quite enough experience to take on something like this...

Some pics attached!
