Body and Upholstery Shops in Wilmington, DE or Philly Area

I'm looking for an upholstery shop to repair a torn seat bolster (seats are otherwise perfect, so I'd hate to recover them) and, separately, a body shop to repair an 8" circumference dent on my left rear quarterpanel. The paint on the car is otherwise excellent and mostly original.

Does anyone have recommendations in the Wilmington, DE (preferable) or Philadelphia area? I'm more interested in the quality of the result than the price.

Thanks!

For upholstery, try Willow Grove Auto Top (They do more than tops). I haven't had the need to use them myself, but they have a very good reputation in the collector car field. Their website is below.

Just to follow up / close out this thread, I used a small shop called C.E. Walls on the Kirkwood highway at 141. The local Saab / Caddy dealer recommended them, and I was very happy with the work. For $225 I got one panel in the seat bottom on my passenger seat replaced and some stitching redone on the other seat. Perfect match, it all looks stock.

For body work try Cavallo, i think thats the correct spelling, they're the tops in the area but very expensive.
