Default For Hawaii peeps: know a good body shop??

Do any of you Hawaii ISx50 owners know a good and reputable body shop on Oahu? I got a rear spoiler and body kit (all OEM) that I need to get installed. I called Lexus and they said that they don't do it and would have to sub-contract it out. Apparently holes need to be drilled in the trunk for the spoiler to be installed. I asked Lexus what body shop they would recommend and they said ACME fender on Halekauwila St. Any other recommendations? Do any of you have a rear spoiler? I'm leery about having holes drilled. Much mahalos in advance.

Kevin

Iv'e read on here that the spoiler can be installed without the holes, add more tape. Not as secure tho.

Definately Joel at JL Auto. He did my 03 GS spoiler...perfect job. Matched the parchment crystal perfectly. Unbelievably hard color to match. Tell him Tom (previously from Lexus) said wassup.

Joel from JL repaired my RX330 damage. Good work I'll probably go back to him for future work if/when needed.

I guess I wont bother him since he is busy. I figured everyone is busy since it is nearing showtime. I need to get a couple pieces painted myself, but I'm using a general alternative source that doesn't do show cars so they should be able to do it in time.
