I don’t have a Body Shop reference for you but I do have a bit of advise. You mentioned “time is limited”. Body/Paint shops are really bad about putting these classic projects in the back corner of the shop and working on them when the bill paying jobs are slow. Try to get a written contract with a specific completion date and monetary penalties for not meeting the terms of the contract. You may have to pay a bit more but the chances of getting your baby back in a timely manner are greatly increased. Good luck.
