Need a body shop in MD/VA

I'm looking for a reputable body shop in Maryland or Northern Virginia area who knows classic 911s.

Thanks!

body shop cause you have a few dents and need a repaint or body shop because all you have is a VIN and the rest needs to be recreated

I'm looking to remove the tea tray/Turbo spoiler from my '84, basically patching up the holes and respraying the deck lid.

I've heard (and seen) good work by these guys:

1) http://europroscollisioncenter.com/services/ (Gaithersburg Md)
2) Karosserie, Ltd in Fairfax, VA 703-876-6300; karosserieltd@aol.com

I can not vouch for the speed in which they will complete your project. Quality takes time afterall.

Thank you everyone for the responses!

I'll give both a call and start my due diligence.

Cheaper if you buy a lid. Then sell yours

Yes, thought about that as well but I also want to take off the name plate per the CoA.

What if you need a little rust repair (corners where cowl, hood, and fender meets), strakes removed in rear fenders, and want some bumpers to be fitted and painted (style TBD)? Same shops?

Village auto body in Warrenton was recommended to me. Any word on them?
