Cheap Body Shop in Denver Area?

My '17 Focus RS was "totaled" by my insurance company after an elk jumped on my car even though it drove fine right after the hit, only later did the PCM shut things down due to the radiator leak. This is a rally car and will get banged up again so I don't care if I get hail damaged hood/quarter panel or whatever, cheap(ish - don't want it to come off in 2 years) paint job, and the frame wasn't affected so safety isn't an issue. Any suggestions?

Man I'm sorry to hear that. Parts may take awhile. That's going to be the biggest hangup I bet. Not familiar with the Denver area, but there's RS Facebook stuff and the FocusRS forums too. I haven't heard of anyone trying to match the NB locally either.

Do you have any pics of the car?

Unfortunately, due to spamming...the post count needs to be a little higher to link photos.

Not sure if anyone else can see that but I can't, so I uploaded it here and tryng again:
Nope. It somehow let me post a shared google drive link but not one from this domain. If you search "Focus RS Elk Damage" yuo should be able to find it.

Yeah I hear ya, but figured if it was uploaded to this domain it might be ok, guess not. Any other way to share the photo or video (which is really crazy)?

I had uploaded it to youtube but kept it unlisted since my name is on it and didn't want it to get out before insurance is taken care of, but I was just able to upload it to vimeo anonymously - if you search "elk vid plus photos" it should be the only one that comes up. Mods if this is breaking the rules feel free to remove it, but everyone that sees it is pretty shocked. I was also hoping by posting that it would maybe get a couple good recommendations, but who knows. I have contributed over at focusrs... well I guess I can't link anything. Found the first 17" wheels that fit on the RS when everyone said none would (Braid Fullrace A and now Team Dynamis Pro Race 1 if I remember correctly... that's it unless you guys know more!), and I did a bunch of research on the top LED light bars, bought the top six rangine from sub-$100 ones that were well reviewed by respected sites to top of the line and tested them.... have 40 lights in a spreadsheet and phots but can't post that. Oh and I got stuck with all 6 of them since I had to move right after the crash and didn't return them on time, so if anyone wants a good deal on an LED light bar I'll sell it below cost since I won't be able to get what I paid for them. Maybe if I keep shitposting enough the mods will let me. :-) Just got another still lowball offer from the insurance company while I was typing this, need to go find more comparables for a bit.
