My parked 356C coupe was side-swiped by a EBMUD (water company) contractor’s truck yesterday. Luckily, plenty of help there to get responsibilities straightened out.
Now comes the task of finding someone to repair it right. Seems many “go tos” have disappeared. Any suggestions / recommendations?

John

You might try Classic Autobody in Berkeley.

Ted Blake in Sacramento does some really nice body and paint. Been around a long time.

This shop looks like they do great work. Here is a Samba post where they are working on a 47 Beelte, and I see a 356 Porsche in the background of some of their photos. They are in Sacramento.

Might be worth looking into.

Thanks Loren for the suggestion. Although I wasn’t able to work out anything last weekend when I drove to meet Ted Blake, the website certainly got me to thinking how to drop by during the week when they’re open.
I really enjoyed meeting with Ted, seeing his shop and feeling his passion for what he’s doing there. It was well worth the white knuckle ride from the Oakland Hills across I80 to Sacramento in a 50-60mph crosswind on 165 tires... Shocked

Talked to Ted on the phone, super nice guy. Will soon be heading that way to get some work done.
