Well I called Amato's and they only work on cars 2007 and newer.
Never heard of such a thing but they referred me to Chapparone Auto Body on Balboa.
Anyone heard of them?

Chapparone is a chain. I have had good luck at the Balboa store but thatís not a 5 star recommendation. Other locations, maybe not. Okay for the minivan.
I like SE Collision off 5 near Old Town.
If the damage is extensive, there is a place off Miramar Road that only works on exotics. Their lot is full of Porscheís, Lambos, and those red ones that start with an F. I used them once.... they thought pretty highly of themselves and had the car forever but did a really good job. Damned if I can remember their name just now. I will do some research and get back to you if I find it.

Sorry, can’t find the name of the place but I remember they were recommended by Pioneer Porsche as the place they take their cars to for body and paint work. Call them if you are interested.
Sorry about the damage. Always a drag especially when it’s the other guys fault.

Go to this website and plug in your zip code: https://www.porschecollisioncenter.com/

My suggestion is to always go to Porsche certified shop. Number of reasons but several of them are:
A) most structural body parts are restricted, meaning Porsche will sell them only to a certified facility.
B) if the job is sub par, you can contact Porsche direct and get them involved. Believe me, this is the last thing any certified shop will want to deal with.
