Columbia, SC - Any shops ya'll would recommend?

Recently moved to Columbia, SC. I've noticed the abundance of various MB's here and wanted to know where to take mine in case I need repairs.
Any suggestions guys?

Do they perform any welding, maybe I'll have them look into checking out my front spring perches and having them replaced and or re-welded.

If that doesn't work out for any reason (or if you just want a lower shop rate), David Wrisley (www.wrisley.com/wmbz.htm) has restored and resold MB diesels for years as a hobby; I've come close to buying a couple of cars from him. He's now doing outside work on cars he doesn't own. I can't speak to his mechanical ability personally, but I've spoken with him a couple of times and he knows his stuff (he's also done a lot of work on W210 diesels).
