Any Recommendations on Sheet Metal Fabricator?

My 04 Ultimate Freedom has some rusted sheet metal parts, called a baffle assembly, around the side mounted radiator..
Winnebago has graciously sent me the drawings, but I can't find anyone locally to make a couple of the flat steel parts. Fabrication will involve cutting plate, bending, making slots, and making holes. Largest dimension is about 4 feet.
Anyone have any ideas?

I know this is perhaps out of the way but I do know someone who can handle the job, however he's in NH. www.customweldinginc.com Phone is 603-942-5170, if you call ask for Patrick. I'm a high end furniture maker and ship nation wide and very fussy on what I do or have done for me, and he does first rate work. I hope it helps you out. Good luck.

Look up a local HVAC / duct fabrication shop in your area. I know two here in northern NJ.

Or check a local body shop.

Check with local body shop or....in FL there are a lot of race tracks and quite a few race car fabricators that could make what you want..

Check machine shops in your area. A friend of mine has a machine shop in a small town a few miles from here. He makes parts to repair just about anything from a wood chipper, to a furnace boiler, to a motorhome.

If you take the prints with you they'll tell you in a couple minutes whether they can make it, how long it will take, and what it will cost.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
I finally found a local sheet metal fab shop that will do the job.
