Looking for body/ paint guy/shop near Salem, OR

Hi gang,
I'm really new to Oregon and need a good body and paint guy to swap out my door on my 95. Ever mess with one particular item so much you just can't stand the thought of working on the same problem any longer? Well that's where I am with my door.

I made the mistake of buying a reproduction driver side door and it hate how flimsy it feels and the so/so fit (air noise). I'm ready to just go buy a used OEM door and have someone hang and paint it. Anyone know of a good body guy near Salem? I'm actually in Lyons, but work in Salem. I don't want to just go to a collision center for a rush job. I'd like someone who will do the job right and people trust.

Thanks in advance and my LORD this is a gorgeous state!

Man I really wish I could help you out. I live in Roseburg, Oregon and am learning to do paint and body stuff for my own rig, but I don't think I am to the level that you need yet. I will ask some of my friends up in that area and see if they can make any recommendations.

Mine was painted by Price autobody in Molalla. Not far away. Tim and Terry are good honest guys. They treated me well.

Sort of. I think I will check Price autobody, but I want to talk to these guys: CANYON AUTO REBODY OREGON?S LEADING HIGH-END AUTO-BODY REPAIR FACILITY SPECIALIZING IN PORSCHE FERRARI MERCEDES BENZ BMW AUTO-BODY COLLISION REPAIR PAINTING RESTORATION FREE ONLINE ESTIMATES
They are literally less than two miles from me in Mehama. They have 1 Google review that gave them 5 starts. Their website makes you think they are high end, but I drove by and they look like a "normal" small town shop.

I talked to the guy at CAR. Seems like a straight shooter. He ball parked the work at $600-$700 bucks. It was a little higher than I expected. I'm going to look in to yogib's suggestion next.

Thanks for the lead Yogib, I just left Prices auto body and talked with Rod.Their estimate was half of CAR's estimate and they are doing all the work (at CAR I had to gut the door and install everything on my own for the $700 price). I was so impressed with price that I just left the door there and they will hang it next week.

I dropped off the Bronco yesterday. I have to fly out of town for a few days, but will pick it up on Thursday. I'll post the results.

Looks sharp glad you're happy with it.
