Mini Down - Need possible mechanic and body work

So yesterday afternoon the Mini must have had a rabid fan because they tried to get a little too close to take a look.

Unfortunately they got a little too close and now the Mini is all kinds of banged up. I called both insurance companies but I wanted to have a few recommendations for getting her back up. Damage from what I can tell is new clear bra, new bumper cover, I'm leaking some fluids, undercarriage is banged up, rims are gouged, and other unknown damages.

I would probably have to get the car flatbedded to wherever it is if this factors into your recommendations.

I know Ray Donch at Ray Donch Body Werks personally, great guy and they do great work, also they're heavily involved with most insurance companies - I can vouch for them working well with State Farm when we used his shop for a non-Mini issue. Tell him you know Leon Dixon.
