Default Exhaust and body shop in Cincinnati?

I recently moved to Cincinnati for a temporary work assignment and unfortunately left all my tools and work space back in Delaware. I have two separate problems that I need to have taken care of while out here but I'm not familiar with the local shops at all.

1. I need a good exhaust shop. I recently put a cobb dp and spt catback on my car. I got the dp used and think it is either bent or was cut and welded at an odd angle. Anyway, it doesn’t line up well with the cat back and the donut gasket is leaking under boost. Anyone know of a decent shop that could fix an exhaust leak on a ss turbo back exhaust?

2. I picked up a nice dent in the rear left quarter panel. Anyone have suggests on a reputable body shop?

I'm on the north west side of town near I-275 and closer would be better. Thanks in advance for anyone that can lend some advice.

How much are you willing to spend on the body work? Usually, for quality work, I'd suggest Boitnott's in Fairfield. They're not cheap, but they do very good work.

As far as the exhaust, I'm not familiar with shops on that side of town. You might want to PM TurnInConcepts, they'll probably know of just about every shop in the area you're talking about.

If you'd rather borrow tools and workspace, that could probably be arranged easily. The only thing that might be a little hard to come by from one of the local guys is a lift and an oxy-acetylene torch.

You can come to my place and try to realign the exhaust first...perhaps it is just set weird?

BTW I'm sure I have a leak in my exhaust but since it's after the DP I don't care.

Blake - did you ever get springs for DP connection?

You just need to buy a bigger drill next time. Or an angle grinder.
