    Body work on Tesla in West Virginia

    Does anyone know if there is a Tesla approved body shop in the Huntington, WV - Ashland, KY - Charleston, WV area? The Columbus, OH Tesla Service Center assured me that I wouldn't have to travel 150 miles one way to Columbus to have mechanical or body work.
