Backdate Chicago / Wisconsin?

Considering back-dating my SC. My car has great paint and I'd like a quality shop with experience of doing this before without wasting hours learning.

Any recommendations in Chicago or Wisconsin?

Thanks

How much you looking to spend, Accumoto does great work but is not cheap

I had minor body repair done at Merton Auto Body, a little NW of Milwaukee. They did great work for my 911 SC Targa. They've also done some work for a friend's track 911 to modify the body and repait.

Kelly Moss Racing in Madison has a body shop/paint dept and is looking for more street car work. Beyond being a Porsche factory supported race team, the cars they've done are next level. Milwaukee PCA toured the facility last year and I saw them finishing up a safari build, a RSR, 914-6 hotrod and a Polo motored 356 outlaw.

Accumoto on the north side of Madison does incredible stuff too but I think they are more focused on full restoration/turn key cars, keeping the impact bumper short hood look. Either way both facilities are worth the trip to check out.

Second for Accumoto. Yes their primary focus is building winning race cars, the quality of their work is excellent. But owner Mark White also loves building hotrod Porsche street cars. He's meticulous about each and every car that goes through his shop. In fact he's manufacturing his own front and rear bumpers to give Carreras that backdate look so many people want. He's not cheap, but has a backlog of people waiting for him to build turnkey race cars. Have a chat with Mark, see what he thinks.

Oh and don't be surprised when you got to his shop, it's in an industrial complex in Waunakee, north side of Madison. He runs 2 business from there- Accumoto and Duraform which manufactures concrete forming systems. Though recently the Accumoto business has been taking more and more space in the large building.

One of these days I need to get the front pan replaced, have the parts, but since the rust doesn't seem to be growing(yeah right) I keep driving it. Its interesting that there really arnt any body shops in Chicago that want to take on this job, you would think that with a city this big that there would be a few.
