964 mid range restoration - Midlands (ish) - recommendations please

Hi - following on from a useful email from Mark (Register owner), I am looking for a couple more companies to look at my 964. From a distance it looks very tidy, but up close the usual rust gremlins plague the lower A pillar-scuttle, and trailing edges of all wheel edges. I know the A pillar is a windscreen out job which could reveal other problems. 
Car is pretty much genuine from the factory and having sorted the original coil-overs with Chris @ CenterGravity and engine with Mike @ Zentrum, the bodywork needs attention.
Mark also agrees with me that Greg @ Southam Bodies should be on my list and I understand Mark (ex -Ninemeister) is worth talking to. A mate also had his car sorted by a team in Redditch.
thanks for your valued input...Rog

Good afternoon;  for bodywork and painting, may I commend Autobody of Leicester who completely restored, with GCR of wigston,  my 964 to a concours award winning standard at R8 concours last year at Chatsworth.
