In need of body shop in Akron

I need a new bumper cover on the back (I hit a pipe that stuck out of the ground, but I couldn't see), and a massive crease dent repaired in the side panel triangle looking piece beneath the sidelights. (Thanks to the person whose door slammed into the car at Acme and didn't leave a note or anything - on that day, we were having 40 mph winds - WHAM!!)

I want a great body shop known for matching paint in Akron. Any suggestions??

WannaMini, Dave Walter uses "Quality Body Shop" on West Bowery Street. I went to a BMW Club meeting there and it seemed like a pretty good shop. Across the street is another body shop that did some paint work on a Porsche that I once owned, it was a very good job. You could get two estimates very easily since they are accross from each other.
Good luck!

I highly recommend Highland Auto Body in Twinsburg. By far the best around.

Didn't you have a relative who has a body shop? Is this it? I remember you saying something once about using someone's paint shop when you did your UJ...

I did the painting myself at my dad's restoration shop.
