Question Greeting from Scotland --can you recommend?

Hello from Stirling, Scotland.

I am considering purchasing a 1956 F100, currently residing in Athens, GA: http://adcache.collectorcartraderonl...5/88298425.htm

However, it needs some welding and re-painted.

It would be cheaper for me to get this work done in the USA before shipping it to Scotland.

Can anyone recommend a garage / sprayshop that is near Athens?

Clearly a bit of a risk, as I'm not exactly local, however, if I get a strong recommendation, I might give it a go.

In detail, here's what the vendor thinks needs doing:
1) fix front of hood lip...its bubbling so prob put a front lip patch on it

2) needs a bed wood kit old wood needs replacing

3) needs both doors to have the lower patch panels installed....they have rusted at the very bottom

4) the rear cab mounts where they attach to the floor need to be fixed...the floor has cracked by the attaching points....I think you can have a plate weilded on and get new mounts to fix it

Let me know what you think...

Cheers,
QbE
