Ball Ernie Auto Body Unlimited
You know when you've met an artist. It doesn't happen very often. Ernie is an artist. And when you visit his shop you know it. His son and his employees are artists. They are unassuming and kind. But they are the real deal - rare and special. I've never been more impressed. It doesn't matter what work you go for, from stock work to incredible art - there is no better. My job was a solid color to match stock. What I got is singularly beautiful. The cost was more than reasonable. The turnaround was fast. It's the stock color, yet it's subtly and indescribably different - deeper, jumps, sparkles. I wish I could find better words. Go here. You'll be glad you did. Wow.

This place did a great job with my truck.  Got rear-ended by a kid who fell asleep at the wheel and didn't even hit the brakes at a stop-light.  Bill had my truck done quickly, and it looks new again.  He even fixed some scratches that weren't from the wreck and didn't charge me.  My son works for a local car dealership, and they send cars to him all the time.  I drive for a living, so unfortunately, stuff happens, but I've found a great place to take my truck when it does.

Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
