Body Shop recommendations

I'm in the South Suburbs of Chicago. I have a very small ding that I'd like to have taken out and I need to have a tiny spot of rust on the inside seem on the lip of the trunk taken care of as well before it becomes an issue.

I also might be interested in having a shop take the dash trim apart so that I can have my buttons redone (sticky button problem).

Does anyone have a shop that they have used in the greater Chicagoland area and were happy with their work (and didn't get charged an arm and a leg)?

I'd like to find someone that has experience working on exotics (especially on the dash work) as opposed to someone that just wants to try their hand at it (I can do that!).

Well, I took a chance on "The Dent Shop," a local place in Plainfield, IL. The website looked decent so I took a drive over for an estimate (if nothing else, a good excuse to go for a ride). The shop was clean and organized and the body guy I spoke with, Bob, was very friendly and explained what they could do for me.

I went ahead and dropped the car off this morning. It was done in less than 4 hours. He took out two very soft dents and a hard dent in the passenger side quarter panel, three dents in the hood (all very small) and then even touched up a couple small chips (free of charge!).

I'm extremely satisfied with their work. I was especially concerned about how that door ding would come out. But I can't even tell where it was now. They really did an excellent job. Everything ran me $275 out the door.

They really cared about their work and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. I'd highly recommend them.

I wish I would have took before and after pictures to show. Either way, the dents are gone and my baby is looking great!
