Can a "current vehicle" body shop do a good job on a classic?

    the problem with the insurance industry as what may come to a shock to most, they are in it to make money, not pay out money. in america land you must have mom and pop insurers who are more than happy to help out the little guy. where i am from they are not so generous, most underwriters refuse to even touch anything not stock. we have few classic/custom car insurers up here in the great white north but if you read the fine print, your car had better have been hit by the space shuttle on re entry on a sunday morning.

    What he said... Plus, it's an insurance job. If the owner isn't happy he can always bring it back until it's right. These shops don't want to lose their DRP contracts with the insurance co. so they're going to have to do the repairs perfect. ALSO, commission bodymen only get paid to do the job once. If there's a comeback they got to stop making money, and take care of whatever aint right with your ride for free. Hence they (we) try very hard to get it right the first time.
