Recommendations for scratch repair

Anyone know anywhere good in Dublin? I have a fresh small but deep scratch that's gone right through to the metal in places. It's about an inch wide and half an inch high.

Now that Im almost over the rage, I want to get it fixed asap. Dont really have the cash to spare to do it but I think its better to do it quickly as I live near the sea so any exposed metal on anything tends to rust very quickly. If any of you guys know anyone good that can work miracles with paintwork, Id appreciate it.

Don't know where in Dublin you are but there is a good place beside Croke Park that I have used and he doesnt rip you off and is very honest. If you like I can get you his number? He's of Jones Road

As an aside to this, any recommedations a touch-up product for minor stone dent damage. Seemed to have been hit by a stray stone on the front wing

Alfa dealership or go into a car paint shop and quote the Dupont paint code on the boot lid.

Re: Recommendations for scratch repair

Thanks for the help so far guys - very helpful. Also seen a place called carcraft mentioned elsewhere. Anyone any experience with them?

Chips Away did seem to have an Irish franchise a while back but I havent been able to find any details on the web since about 2006.

Re: Recommendations for scratch repair

Just got it back from Anthony down beside Croke Park and he did a really excellent job. Thanks for the recommendation, and I'd similarly recommend him highly to anyone who needs any work done.
