Fantastic craftsmanship, excellent people and service, and reasonable pricing. This must be on your list, if you need to talk to any body shop or repair shop. Close to BART, so even if you're in the city, do consider this place and filter out the overpriced workshops in SF.

I had my 1983 Vanagon towed to Felipe's shop, suspecting an issue with the starter. 523Rods knew I was traveling full-time in the van, and was able to 1) diagnose the problem in under an hour, 2) get me back on the road with a new starter + ignition switch within 24 hours. I felt like the crew truly understands Vanagons, and was very impressed with their ability to fix it quickly. Felipe also has a long history with vans himself, and you can tell the shop deeply cares about what they do. Will definitely be bringing my Vanagon back to 523Rods if in need of repairs while in the Bay.
