Seattle/Tacoma area body shop recommendations?

The time is finally coming for me to address the fact that my '86 951 has 34 years of dents and dings and stone chips. I'm looking for a recommendation on a body shop that can do a proper repaint and exterior restoration this fall/winter. Most shops I've talked with seem either uninterested in any work that isn't from an insurance repair or slightly sketchy with regard to quality. Any of you all in the area have recommendations for a good restoration shop?

For reference, I expect this to be an $8,000 to $12,000 job for a true factory finish that will likely include replacing a few rubber seals as well (doors, hatch, and sunroof seals are all new, but the window seals are probably due). Despite the ubiquity of Guards Red, I intend to keep the same color.

The car as it is now it's reasonably clean and straight aside from a dent in the passenger side door/rear fender where an idiot reversed into the car in a parking lot recently. The good side of the car: https://i.imgur.com/U39UCYT.jpg

Anyone who knows of a shop that will do quality work, I welcome your advice!

If you are willing to bring it to CA, we might be able to tackle it.
