    Well, this sucks, but a deer clocked the driver's side of my Model S on the way home from work this evening, destroying the front quarter panel and leaving dents in both doors.

    Anyone dealt with getting body work done on these around RTP?

    Wow that sucks :-( What road was the deer on? I'd ask the Raleigh SC who they recommend. You'll want to work with someone who has repaired a Tesla before.

    Sorry to see/hear this. PARAGON does lots of high end cars and can repair aluminum. I think a lot of dealers especially Porsche uses them.

    Yep, called the SC first thing this morning and it turns out PARAGON is the Tesla certified shop in the area.

    Now crossing my fingers that Tesla's sorted out their repair parts department and there's no longer the absurd waits some people have reported for repairs.

    Ack! That's a horrible thing to happen to anyone. Hope they get everything back to pristine quickly.
