Installation of rear reinforcement bar for rear facing seats

I am adding rear facing seats to 2018. Model S.

Wanted to see if anyone can recommend a body shop in the Chicago area that can help with that? I spoke to one and they are not comfortable adding it as they see it as a liability. Another said $1200 for just labor. Both if those are certified by Tesla. I am trying to avoid making this a DYI project. :)
