Default Alpharetta Georgia help!

Hi,

My C5Z needs some crash damage repair. For you guys with boots on the ground in Alpharetta can you refer me to a fast, on time, reputable body shop. I'm in California trying to get my car in Alpharetta fixed before the next race at Road Atlanta in March. I took a good rear bumper shot last weekend at Sebring.

Thanks!!

Sentry Auto Body in Lilburn does a lot of race car work. Great folks and Mike races a Spec Miata at Road Atlanta 10 x a year and understands the unique issues a racer has to deal with.

If you have a problem getting the car moved I am a couple hundred miles away in Huntsville but I can leave here in the morning with an open trailer, pick the car up from where it is and deliver it the car to the shop.

A close friend and fellow car guy used this shop with great success:
http://www.acworthcollision.com/

I have also heard many guys that were at the body I would have recommended a few years ago have landed at the Sandy Springs location here:

My recommendations are for a street car. You may want to contact Ron at Vengeance Racing if you need further ideas for a race car. Vengeance is just up the road.

http://www.robinsonracing.net/ has been building race cars for a long time and is just north of Alpharetta.

Abra Paint and Body up here in Cumming has repaired my VW Jetta numerous times from collisions and has done a fantastic job and they back their work. When I'm ready to have my ZO6 repainted, that's where I'm going, probably because they are so close.

Sentry is also a great place to go if you want to travel a little further. I used to race with Mike, a long time ago - different class, but his operation is really good and he is price friendly toward racers. Once Mike T-boned me in Turn 1 at Road Atlanta and bent over backwards to help me get back on the track.
