Default Anyone dealt with Cobra Restorers LTD?

They are located in Kennesaw, Georgia. I would like to have a couple of small issues fixed and I'm hoping someone can verify that this place does good work.
While I'm at it, if you know of a place near Chattanooga that you can recommend I'd love to hear it, my CSX4000 needs some minor work. Thank you for any help.

I can vouch for Olthoff Racing in Mt. Ulla, NC. They have done many SPF/Shelby cars and have extensive race experience. We send many customers to them for installs and service.

Many moons ago, I had some work done on CSX 3183, left rear wheel well damage, affecting the suspension also.

TOP NOTCH, work, he has done more Cobra's than Carter has pills.

You CAN'T go wrong, simple the best, unless you ship to McCulsky (sp)

Thank you MkIV and 3183, I had considered Olthoff, as well as Cobra Restorers. Thank you both for your help.

Can't really go on peoples' experiences from years gone by as the owner/ manager died just a couple of years ago. The place may or may not have found good replacement help.

Thank Ned, I may have to verify their help status. I had hoped this wouldn't turn into a major ordeal. Have you any experience with Olthoff or can you suggest another alternative.

Steve,

Dennis Olthoff helped me on my race car build and has provided track-side support as well. Quality person, knows cobras and has a very nice shop with good mechanics. He works on a lot of cobras, GT40's, and Mustangs. His father used to race a 289 cobra.

Thanks Jim for your input, I'm leaning toward using Olthoff based on yours and others postings.
