Default Orlando area Body Shop recommendations?

I posted in General about how someone backed into me and caused ~$1500 in damage. The place I wanted to take it to is backed up until March, so I'm looking for any recommendations you guys might have. Or even places to avoid. East Orlando area would be best (no further east than Deland).

Just stay away from Sterling auto body on rt. 50--they did a horrible job trying to fix our old honda element (our dd at the time). We wound up having to take it to Osman Jeep collision in Melbourne. Osman's done work for us before and got it right the first time everytime.

After taking the element back to Sterling for the 3rd time, we'd had enough.

I always had a good experience with Samuel's Auto in Sanford.

Thanks guys, I wound up going to Ace Paint and Body Works in Winter Park. They are pretty close to my office and had really good reviews over the last few years. Should have my car back by Friday.

Since yesterday afternoon. I went in with just the intention of getting my original estimate looked at. But after they went over it and agreed with the original assessment they asked when I'd like to have the work done, and I said "as soon as possible" to which they replied "how about today?". Then I said that would be fine, as long as I could set up a rental car. They called Budget for me and made sure they would accept USAA insurance (from the person who hit me), and then about 5 minutes later a Budget guy came and picked me up. Took less than 5 minutes and I was out of the Budget rental place with a fancy Altima 2.5S Coupe, lol. They did have a Camaro, but they apparently rented it out a short while before I got there.
