Body shop recommendation San Diego/North County

Hello All-- long time lurker pulled the trigger on a great RB50. It does have some rust on the roof where the PH sits.
I called a couple of shops that only handle insurance repairs. Does anyone have a recommendation on a shop that is familiar with Sportsmobiles? I live in North County San Diego.
Thanks very much and pics to come.
Matt

I would call John at Agile Offroad (In SD) and ask him. They don't do paint but surely know someone who does.

As for it needing to be someone familiar with Sportsmobiles, it doesn't. There's no magic there, it's just a Ford van body with the top cut out.

Welcome!

Agile used to use their next door neighbor.. but they moved out and Agile took over their space. I think the guy is still nearby though.

Just wondering if you ever found a place. I have the exact same problem that I need to get fixed I'm still trying to find someone to work on it.

I found a shop in Leucadia that could do it but they seemed a little funky. Rancho Autobody in Encinitas gave me an estimate that seemed high. I'll keep looking and post when I find someone.

I just had the repairs done on our van roof by a person located in the Sports Arena area. They did a fantastic job.

Excellent. Do you mind giving more specifics on the shop, what steps were done and what it cost. Any before/after photos?

I'll try to get some repair photos, but the before pictures are below. It appears like problem occurred due to moisture being trapped under the tape on the roof. There are other spots that are bubbling, most likely due to water underneath.

The repair cost $800 and they finished it over two days. I'm not sure if that is a good price or not but I'm extremely happy with the work. Here are the shop details:

R&D Auto Body & Paint
Ramiro Cortes
619.991.5027
Hancock St., San Diego, CA 92110 (next to Bay City Brewing Co)
