    My s85 received an unwelcome large door scratch this weekend. My local tesla center recommends ohare auto body. Any experiences? Will probably have to blend the paint. Thanks

    As long as there isn't any structural damage any bodyshop with aluminum repair and refinish capability can do it. The problem is less than 10% of the industry is qualified to work on aluminum vehicles. Ford said that when they announced their new lightweight F-150. If there is no metal deformation the only diffeerence between aluminum and steel refinishing is the subtrate (primer). Tesla would know this or they would probably not have sent you there so you should be fine.

    Nice to see some other Tesla Certified shops in the Chicago area. I thought Gold Coast Auto-body was the only one!

    For paint work, I can recommend an incredible shop in Palatine area. They work on very high end cars and know how to work with and paint aluminum, as well as composites, fiberglass, etc.

    Let me know if you're interested in a referral.
