I called for a general estimate to get body work done to my 1970 Chevelle. (I work on cars myself, as I’m an ASE technician. However, I have 0 experience with body work.) I have most of the needed sheet metal sitting in a storage unit, but I am still awaiting parts that are on back order (floors and doors mainly). The repairs needed are for a very experienced technician. This car means the world to me & I will not allow just anyone to work on it. With that being said, I’m in the process of having the frame sand blasted and powder coated. So I’m also trying to find a reputable business that can put the body on a rotisserie and complete the extensive work this car deserves. To be very clear, I am not looking for a complete restoration, just the necessary work to have a fully rebuilt, rolling chassis. Unfortunately, my business has been declined because I have started the restoration process myself. I thought for a body shop, this would actually be a good thing because the sheet metal work can be done simultaneously with the frame. I assumed having a virtually new frame to mount the body to would be an ideal situation. After reading some reviews on surrounding shops, I can understand the logic behind declining my business (as some people expect a full restoration, for very little cost – even when they bring it in, in pieces.) But that is not at all what I was looking for. My plan was to deliver the frame to the shop completing the body/ paint so the new body could be mounted to the new frame and the car could be returned to me, so I could happily continue the restoration process at my own shop. I am writing this review to share my personal experience because I do not feel I was treated fair or was at least given the opportunity to present the details surrounding my project.
