Default Crash! Need Help Finding A Good Bodyshop In West La Area!

Hi, guys!

I was rearended last nigh by a moron in a Chevy Silverado 1500 HD truck with a boat in tow!

The damage to my WRX is quite extensive. The truck's bumper was so high, that it hit smack in the middle of my trunk lid and rear lights! God, I hate those things!!!

The truck's bumper imprint is right across the "S U B A R U" badging. The left quarter panel is crushed in about 6 inches and buckled above the left-rear fender well. The trunk lid is folded in half and pushed right to the rear window. The trunk's rear bulkhead is bowed in about 8 inches and folded over, so now I can not get to my spair tire compartment because the trunk floor is now buckled and trapped. There is a huge gap that you can fit your arm through between the rear bumper and the trunk sheet metal.

The funny part is that my rear bumper does not even have a scratch on it! All of the impact went to the soft sheetmetal parts above the bumper. All because of that dam-friggin monstrosity!

All of these gas guzzling tanks should be outlawed! They are a real hazard! Thank god it was a 10 mph impact. I had my 12 year-old daughter in the back seat! I do not even want to think about what could have happened if it was any faster!

Anyway, now that I am done venting, can any of you guys recommend a good quality body shop to get my car fixed. I am in Santa Monica, so I am looking for something local. I want my car fixed right! Please suggest a shop for repairs...

Thanks a bunch!
Maniac.
