I also live on the South Shore and gotta tell ya it is not easy to find someone willing to do this work now a days. I have sold my last car and bought this one just for the fact of not being able to get someone to do the floor boards for 3 years. People will say they will do it and then you bring it to them and it sits there and nothing gets done. I wish you luck and hope you find someone.

I don't know these guys... but they seem to be worth checking out. They've got videos of their work online.

Not too sure about Modern Autobody as far as that goes. I thought they were really just for newer cars and insurance deals. There have been several people in my past such as Factory Collision in Weymouth and several personal side work people that have done the same thing to me. As a matter of fact my 65 convertible sat at Factory Collision for almost three years! By then it was further gone to the point I sold itand bought another 65 that needed floors and so the story goes on. I really hope you have luck getting this done. I will ask around the car club I belong to and see if anyone there has any ideas. Send me a PM with your name and number and I will get in touch with you and get your exact needs and see what I can find out.

Just stumbled upon them while surfing the net looking for info on converting a coupe to a fastback about 18 months ago. If their videos truly represent their capabilities then it seems to me they would be a good shop to check out.
