240 body work

I posted earlier on the rust issues in connection with my 240D 77.
Today I had the local MB shop examine the rest, fortunately the front and rear supprt structural arms are all in perfect shape, where I have rust is the pan and damage done to the body by a leaking battery some years ago. The only possible structural damage that was identified is a "stabilizer bar" that goses up from the front end and enters the engine compartment somwhere in and around the battery area.
Can anyone recommend a body shop in Houston that can tackle this issue? I would appreciate any help on this.
I know that this may be way too stupid, but I find myself too damn attached to this old baby and can not let it go.
By the way the car has a new engine in it.
