I was just involved in perhaps the weirdest automobile accident I've
experienced in my short driving career.  A fellow in a big F-150 with a
trailer ball backed into my '54 Chevy pickup, bending my front bumper out
of alignment with the bottom of my grill and putting a huge dent in the
nose-piece of the grill.

I'm going to just buy a replacement nose-piece, but I think I'll have to
go to a body shop to re-align the bumper and lower part of the grill, as I
have no tools or experience in body work.  It looks like the bottom part
of the grill was pushed back about an inch; can any of you folks recommend
a good shop in the Boulder-Denver area, and maybe estimate how much it's
going to cost?

Thanks in advance,
