good body shop in Iowa please.

Hey guys I'm trying to get prep for FocusFest, plus I just wanna make my car earlier. I wanted a good body shop that someone has experience with. I'm in the Waterloo area and I just want a good honest quality body shop. Dont need some super fast or perfect shop. Got a little surface rust to hopefully get rid of. Any suggestions?

don't know of any right off hand. My suggestion would be to look around for some local car clubs or online forums and talk to members on there that might be able to help. or you can try angieslist.com or just go around and research some shops. look for places that have been around for a while and have a nice looking shop (not just fancy, but clean too). if they take care of their shop then they are more likely to take care of your car. ask them if they warranty their work and for how long. also can talk to your insurance company for references. most ins companies will have a list of approved repair shops that they use.

Yeah locally I think I found one but I was a mechanic and after working with a body shop 5 ft away from me and not liking what I was seeing and how I was treated (by fellow employees) and one crappy body shop that was recomended I became very leary of any body shop.
