3.2 Carrera Got Hit Tonight -- Need a good auto body shop in Los Angeles

Someone hit my 3.2 87 Carrera tonight while I was driving home. They were making a right turn across two lanes without signaling, thus cutting right in front of me. At 45 miles an hour there was nothing I could do. I attempted to evade and was able to minimize the damage to them hitting me at my driver door and rear quarter panel. Mostly superficial damage, but an accident is an accident and it's bad news .

I need a quality shop to do this repair on the car in the Los Angeles area. Does anyone have any suggestions? I just got the car back from a major service and some improvements from Callas Rennsport and they had the car for a month doing my work. I can't believe this. Aweful.

Hello there are tons of shops in the LA area many who specialize in Porsche only ,I would be
careful of course because for what some of the higher end shops may want to charge the
insurance co may want to total your ride...(GASP)
if you don't mind having your car closer to LAX the guys over at Axiom can likely fix you up
without too much pain ..
Give them a call at 310 736 5650 if it can be driven get an estimate..good luck!
