Rust Repair/Body Shop in Pittsburgh

Hi, all! I'm wondering if anyone knows a good body shop in the Pittsburgh area that can help fix my rusting out wheel wells. I have a 73 F100 in overall decent condition, but the driver's side wheel well is starting to get pretty rusted out and I wanted to get it dealt with before it's too late.

I'd imagine I can just look in the 'phone book' (i.e., Google), but I figure you guys may have some suggestions of places that do good work.

Thanks!!

Most body shops usually don't like to take on rust work due to the potential for comebacks. I'd suggest you call a few shops and see what they have to say.

rust repair

Yeah I've got the same problem, only on the rear of my truck. Already had to weld in some panels in the bed by the talgate, and my rear fenders are pretty bad. I live up near Clarion, PA and the shops up here have no problem reparing that kind of stuff, even got a few quotes... be prepared to pay though.. thats the only thing keeping me from calling them up and having it done tomorrow...

Knox's Metal Medic is near me and they do some rust repair work. I'm not sure if they are expensive or not. Google the name for contact info.
