Body shops

Anyone know of a decent body shop in the Lincon area? The wife has dinged her offside driver and rear doors, (147 1.6TS Lusso, 5 door, 2002) courtesy of a plastic cone with a steel post underneath. Been quoted around £300 by a chap in Shipdham, Norfolk when we lived there, and who had done excellent work for us before, but we have recently moved to Lincoln area. IIRC, Desira in Norwich quoted us around £1200 for the same, lol.

I did consider getting a couple of doors from eBay / breakers and swapping them over, which would be cheaper, but the car colour is Platinum Grey, and finding cars in that colour is like trying to find the proverbial hen's teeth.

I've searched the t'interweb, and yes, there's several places, just wondered if anyone would recommend somewhere / have any horror stories.
