Just got some new skin!

As some may remember, in Oct I got a dent in my TW. Well in Dec. I found an ad in the classified selling NOS Airstream skins. I recieved my package today with three NOS panels for my TW. The dented curbside middle, and segments 19 and 20 from the rear that had been dented sometime by the PO. Now I need to save to get them repalced at......... .
I know of a few restoration shops/dealers that can do the job, now it's who does it best. and at what price. Also do I allow Olympic rivets and do a panel repacement, or make it be done by the Buck rivet way from inside?
I do not feel I will tackell this job myself. So any good feedback is welcomed!

I know that Frank at Frank's Trailer Works has done this work. He wouldn't use Olympics for it either. Should only be a few hours south of you.

I'm a happy client - he didn't do panel repair on my Argosy, but I've talked with a client who had more extensive work done and they were pleased. Trailer looked good too.
