restoration/bodyshop in NC/VA/SC???

I need to get some rust repairs done (front pan, windshield post corners and rear shelf) and a paint job on my 911, but I trust the body shops around here about as far as I could throw them. I am located near Raleigh NC but would be willing to tow it a state in either direction for quality work. I can get the panels from Restoration Design, etc. but need the actual welding and body work done. Any recommendations?

Second referral for Louis Lesko at Karosserie.
His specialty is total resto 356s, which are a treat to see if he has one in the shop. Superb work, reasonable prices. Happy customer.

I have used Karosserie for repairs. I would recommend them highly.

Thanks all - will check them out.

I would imagine there are some good shops in NC near Charlotte, with the NASCAR/racing frenzy around here. I wonder if any have experience with 911s...
