Default Body Shop to Remove STI Roof Vane

I wanted to see if anyone can refer me to a body shop where they've taken their STI to have the roof vane deleted professionally.



Looking for a shop that's located in Ventura and the Los Angeles County area.


Thanks alot for your help!

There is only one guy that I ever heard of that had the roof vane professionally taken off on a hawk sti. He said that there were two metal nubs on each side that holds it in place and they need to be cut off and sanded down to smooth. He was super picky about matching the paint correctly so he had the shop paint the whole panel from the A to B to C pillar then down to the tail light housing area. I assumed all the work wasn't cheap and he confirmed it wasn't lol. He paired it with a legit wingless trunk and was a super smooth set up. My point is that it isn't something super complicated that needs to be done body wise, just if there is a shop that can match the suby color well and if you are willing to pay for all of that work.

Think i'm going to ditch the idea, sounds like it's a 600-1000 job.
