[T3] Body Shop in SF Bay Area?

I just had my '67 (103K original miles; Ca. black plate vehicle, minimal
rust)) Fastback painted at a place in San Jose.  I will be posting pics.  It
was a referral from a local VW shop.  I will be picking it up this weekend,
but the paint job looks great.  You should ask your mechanic for a referral.
To get a proper paint job, all chrome and glass and fenders should be
removed.  I would be very cautious about the place in Concord.  I brought my
car there and regretted it.  I would not bring a car there.  You can email
me at jsh at amclaw.com for specifics, if you want.

Well, my son banged up the hood and front apron on my '69 Fastback.
He somehow popped the clutch while the car was in the garage, and it lurched
forward anto the corner of my workbench.  Nobody hurt, but the car needs
some body work now for the first time in its life.  So who can recommend a
good shop in the San Francisco Bay Area?  I think they can probably work
with the bent hood and apron, but I think I will need a new chrome mustache
on the front of the hood.  Anybody have a line on a good used one?  I'll
probably think about taking the opportunity to get a new paint job.  Right
now it has its original Toga White patina.  Any suggestions, please?
