Recommendations for Body repair work in Orange County California?

Tesla has does body repair work for a couple of years now. Our P85D was rear ended a couple of years ago and their Walnut Service Center had a body shop onsite. They were much faster and less expensive than the independent body shops, fabulous work... and got the insurance company to approve their "supplement" (increase) resulting in Zero cost to me. Awesome!
