Recommend a Body shop in Hampton Roads

My Excursion sat for 13 months while I was deployed and the paint is cracking and coming off the roof in chunks. There seems to be some surface rust below the paint. I want to fix it so it doesn't happen again.

Anyone familiar with Hampton Roads well enough to recommend a good body shop?

YEAH! The Langley Air Force Base Auto Hobby Shop

Call ahead and see if they still have a paint booth - they may have got screwed out of it, but I doubt it.

I don't remember seeing an auto hobby shop aboard NAVSTA NORVA, which is why when I was acdu there I went straight for Langley...

~Dutch

Check out this link - it has the POTS numbers:
http://langley.jbleforcesupport.com/auto.html

For those who have no clue about milspeak: POTS = Plain Old Telephone System

If you DON'T want to do it yourself - they will also give you info on a place that will NOT rip off a person in uniform. Unfortunately, that happens. We know about those places - ask them!
IF THERE ARE Military FRIENDLY places, they will know of them

You are stationed in an area that is kind of cut-throat if they smell military money. Be careful!
Flash a mil ID card, and they expect you to be stupid with your cash - so never tell them

In fact -if they ask about your window decals, tell them you bought it used!

I kind of hate to say that, but it is very true

~I would also like to invite you to the FTE "VETERANS NETWORK"

If you're looking for a DIY job the LAFB is a great place to begin.

If you want, send me a private message and maybe we can get together.
