Bodyshop suggestions

I have got my hands on wing mirrors to replace the ones that were kindly kicked off a couple of weeks ago. One is in the same colour whilst the other is red.
Can anybody recommend a good well priced body shop to paint the mirror casing for me?

thanks

Re: Bodyshop suggestions

I've got a dent in the door I'm wanting soted so I went to a 3 bodyshop places for quotes. Not looked in the Woodside area though. Cheapest one was Watson's Autobody on Holland St. The guy seemed pretty reasonable and he was currently working on an Aston Martin so he must be well trusted!

Bought the car for a reduced price with a bash in the door. Looks like someone has just driven into it in the supermarket then bolted. The quote is for that dent and the rest of that side to get rid of door bashes etc. There is also a small mark on the other side where someone (with a red car as they were kind enough to leave some paint behind) has scraped it. *******s these people who can't park a car.

Went to Autospray in Bridge of Don - £850, Reid's Autobody Repairs in Bridge of Don (works from a shed at the end of a wee lane) - £650 and Watson's Autobody - £500.

Think I'll need to wait a couple of months before I can afford it though! Got the cambelt etc to pay for and could do with a new key as well!

Re: Bodyshop suggestions

Alexgee, get a cheapo airbrush, Machine Mart about £9, a canister of propellent, some flat colour, clear lacquer, bit of prep, and off you go. Much more controlled application than aerosols, for a good, cheap DIY jobbie.

Re: Bodyshop suggestions

I've got a nasty mark and small chip on the wheelarch from some careless bugger at supermarket car park. Silver paint marks across the rear offside wing (the smallish wing with fuel cap) so I could at least tell the colour of the offending drivers motor! he had obviously bolted by the time I came back. bloody ridiculous.

I've got the silver paint off but now ive taken some laqcuer away and its lost the shine.. also the chip I have painted over with some glossy black for now but it dont look good. Pain in the ass... If I could catch the bugger i'd hang im....

Might need to respray that wing, thankfully black should an easy colour to match, apart from ths mess the existing paint job is pretty decent still.

Is this place on woodside called Dave's?


To err is human, but you need an Alfa to really screw things up!

The road to heaven is paved with old Alfa's.

Re: Bodyshop suggestions

Used this guy a few times over the years.

He is located half way..ish between the Kingswells roundabout and the Westhill roundabout, just look out for the sign for "Smiddy Brae"

Re: Bodyshop suggestions

It is a bit of a trek but Fiskens Bodyshop of Forfar, Angus did a complete respray of my 156 including fitting two new front wings, new badges, repairing the side skirts which were split, a couple of shopping trolley dents and a high spot in the roof.

It looks like a new car £1600 including the cost of two wings.DPP_0002 copy.jpg

This may sound daft, but I recognise that street. Is it around the greens area in Forfar?

I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago.

I recently had my car repaired at Watson's Autobody and I must say he did a cracking job. 100% happy with it and it was done at a reasonable price.

It was £400 to get the whole of one side done and the door on the other.

I had a big dent in the passenger side door from someone hitting it in a carpark before doing a runner. This had also casused slight damage on the front wing. Various door dings up the side were also removed.

The drivers side door also had a small dent and some red paint the other mystery driver had kindly left for me.

Anyway, decent guy who does a great job. I'd recommend to anyone.

just thought I would dig this thread up as I am thinking about getting the front end of the GTA done, I managed to use the existing casings on the new mounts on the GTV so didnt get anything painted

anybody want to add anybody else to the list?

For some reason I think there is somebody around Findon/Portlethen that is good but can think what they are called.

thanks
