Strike two on a body shop...

Hello, all..
I'm in the process of trying to find a body shop to fix some rust and paint my 75 F 100.. problem is that the first place I tried it a small shop, and is currently swamped.. second place has steered away from that and is focused on collision stuff.
I live near Clarion, PA, and any tips would be great

Thanks,

Mike

Check with your local Vo-Tech school

A lot of shops I talked to when I had my Explorer shied away from rust work as they said "they can't guarantee it lasting"...like Shane said try a Vo-Tech school and keep pinging shops...someone is bound to want the work...

A Vo Tech School would be more then happy to have it since they are teaching the kids to fix that kind of stuff, so it would be a great learning oppurtunity

Yeah, thanks again for the advice. I think I may have found such a person today. I live next to a gas station (convenient, huh?) and the guy that works there gave me a phone number of the person who works on the owner's classic cars.. He took my number, and we are planning on meeting up on Thursday or Friday of this week.
