DAMN. Help required.

So I got a flat today, no biggie, but when I jacked up the car I crushed my rocker. DAMMIT. Bad day from step one.

What's worse is I KNEW the rocker was rotten and a buddy had a truck jack there (that I ended up using). So it could have been avoided.

So, who knows a body shop that can repair this? I have had NO luck with body shops lately either; specifically Ottos that really pissed me off last week. Nor have I ever found a place that happily has said "yes, we'd love to take your money and fix your car." They all say, "oh, really, we don't deal with rust, etc, very much."

So somebody.. PLEASE, tell me a body shop that can replace the rockers on a 91 525i.

Hopefully yours,
Jason

They are one of the specific shops I had mind when I mentioned the 'we don't do rust'. Exact words from them. I think they'd rather paint bumper covers and replace taillights all day: cleaner and more profitable work.

I like Fine Line Collision in Markham. They have a nice, clean shop and appear to put out some of the best work in the GTA.

Edit: Sorry, didn't see you were in Ottawa.

^^ Yeah I think so.. didn't he put a giant hole in his rocker? And what gives with body shops that don't deal with rust?? That's like all the garages I dealt with, Duss, Otto's Elite etc.. Sorry we don't work on sunroofs... What the hell..

my bro knows a few 'actual phone numbers' to shops half way to fortune that will fix rust.

Leeview (iirc the name) off vanier did a good job on my e36.

stealerships i've found are always 'top dollar' used only if insurance is paying

Any place that does frame up resto's I'm sure will do it. Not sure if there still around, but there was a place off bank st (far south) that would most likely do it. They do some seriously good work. They do complete resto's of classic cars, so you know they have to be good at what they do.

I can't remember the name off the top of my head, but give me a few minutes and I'll try and find it.

Edit: Ohhh. Another idea I had....you want to just split on a welder? Home repair FTW!

I think Jeff has a Plasma cutter if not mistaken, good for cutting.. then you'll need a welder as well..

I gotta keep an eye on this thread. I think rust is actually holding my car together...

There's always Majestic Auto Restorers. http://www.majesticautorestorers.com

Don't know about their quality of work or pricing, but they do say rust repair on their site.

I have heard good things about Caron off St. Laurent as well. Can't say that I know if they do rust, though.

Looks like the place I was thinking of is gone. Sounds like the owner retired or something.

But any restoration place will do. Like Phil said, I'm sure Majestic will do it, and they've been around for quite some time.

I have access to a welder, I just don't know how to weld! I was checking out if I could get aftermarket rockers and weld them in, but I haven't found anything so far. I did find some for e30 though, for $74 a piece, wow!

Trial and error...if you mess it up, just cut the peice out and try again All the shows on T.V make metal work look so easy
