Default Any cheap Mexican body shops in San Diego or El Paso Tx good with Sprinters?

T1N Body shop or man needed near Mexico. Dent in Hood, need new ps door, lower behind wheel dents to remove. Fix rear door to shut 100%... dent very top on roof near door, small ding on rear upper door panel. Paint front clip and front of roof (paint peeling from last job) and dent removal looking for a Cheap Mexican speaking body shop that can bring this piece of junk back to life so I can have more pride in the vehicle and start to speak nicely about it... Will travel to El Paso or San Diego. If Million Mile Sprinter will take it to Mexico I'll sponsor him on his next trip and pay the fuel Fix for under a grand. Will supply door, need paint, labor and full body massage aka dent removal.

Any bodyshop in San Diego or El Paso would be an American bodyshop because it is located in the US.
A Mexican bodyshop would be located in Mexico.

Spanish is a language, Mexican is a nationality...you can’t speak Mexican.

A list of body shops south of the border.

Helpful lot !
I called down to two Hyundai medium duty truck shops in Mexico City & Guadalajara looking for a grey market sets of brakes.
I asked for pastillos de frenos delanteros--Venezuelan truck shop talk --Got back "Senor fijate Mexicano para pastillos son Ballatos.
Si Senor!

Senor, any decent T1N friendly body shops here in Colorado that can fix some interior roof rust this Summer before I insulate? I thought about doing it myself but need to read up more and prefer to have it done right. I can go down and do the rest north of the border when I find a good shop down south to remove dents/mount front PS door and paint the front clip/front upper roof section.

It is when you're dealing with a T1N about to hit 300k that you lost hope in!

Let me see if the "converted crowd" will cut me a check for $13-14k and they can take it off my hands. I've got full power leather seats, major upgrade here folks I'm seeing the "converted" guys selling T1N's for $35k, what a bargain in comparison!
