I'll ask a few of my mates who are mechanics, see if they know anyone good around here. Not many independent bodyshops still trading nowdays though. That colour may be hard to match in fact, as its SO new, but we shall try, Eh, Tess !!!!!.........

Yes, I've heard many good reports on Chips away as well, although from what Tess has said about her damage, it may be too much for him to repair at home, but certainly worth a phone call methinks !!!!........
