Default Atlanta area body shop recommendations?

Something fell on the Z, and I've got a fairly deep ding in the rear quarter, right next to the gas filler access door. It's not that noticeable unless you're looking for it, but I know it's there. Anyone know of a reputable body shop in the Atlanta area? I'm worried a little about blending/matching the paint because it's a 40th.

Kong's off Cheshire Bridge and Classic Collision in Buckhead seem to have good ratings, but if you guys have taken your cars to someone else, and were extremely impressed, I'd love to know who. Off to grab some estimates today.

Thanks in advance!

I use Barrow Autobody in Smyrna. The owner has a 350z and plans to get a 370z.

They did this for me. complete custom paint job, and several other jobs and are the only shop that I have never had to bring the car back afterwards to fix something they missed:

Thanks for the info guys! Looks like I'll be running to Autoglo for an estimate.

I'm on the road until Saturday, but I'll try to get a pic or two up when I get home.

This place was the highest quote out of ALL the places I went too (12 of them). They wanted about $2,000 just to paint and install Aerojackets fenders. Stating that they would have to repaint the hood, doors, etc.

And they WOULD NOT give me any pricing over the phone (which I thought was odd because I asked if they have done this to Z's before and the lady said yes...WTF...then why not just give me the price over the phone nothing has changed).

All I can say is what a ******* waste of my time!!!! Very unhappy just because they are so close to my location.

jlbrenne,

Try Autoglo (mentioned above). They gave a fair estimate and do great work from what I've seen so far. I still haven't fixed the scratch, but will take it there when I do. It's a drive from the Smyrna/NW Metro area though.
