Huntsville paint / body work?

Any recommendations, positive, or negative experiences with body and paint shops in or around Huntsville? I am looking to get the whole car resprayed in factory black in the next few months. I'll need a bit of minor body work to repair a few dings, and some slight damage and creasing along the left rear quarter panel.

If anyone has had work done in the area and doesn't mind elaborating on what it cost and what was done, I would appreciate it. I don't mind taking the car a good distance from here if I can get a good recommendation.

Thanks,

broken93

Sledge's Body Shop is pretty good as well as Rod's but they are really SLOW! I've dealt with both and they seem to give good attention to detail. Sledge's will probably be less expensive than Rod's. You can also look through the yellow pages and check out a few in person.

Well I had considered Rod's because of their mainstream reputation, but I know I'm going to pay dearly for it. I'll check out Sledges. I'm not in a big hurry so as long as it gets done in less than 4 weeks I'm happy. I'm still going to be paranoid and remove some critical parts so the car won't crank/start. I've heard too many horror stories about FD joyriding.
