DFW Detail Shop Referral (Preferrably Fort Worth Location)

I recently took my old 240D to the "do-it-yourself" car wash (big mistake) and the paint has looked faded and shows very faint streaking (from the water?) ever since. Prior to the nightmare wash, the car had light oxidation in keeping with the year (early 80's), but ever since the paint shows more oxidation. The only possible cause I can think of is that the car wash lines were crossed and I sprayed it with hard water or "degreaser".

I would like to find a good, reasonably priced detail shop to try to bring the paint back to life. I thought maybe a professional detailing would help to return the luster of my 240's exterior. Fort Worth is closer to me but a great Dallas shop is not out of the question.
