Anyone know somwhere good with paint in Bath/ Bristol or...

...further afield, within reason.

Hi all,

My car has bad stone chipping on the back edge of the arches (mainly on the front) and the chips have joined up to the point where it's now surface rust.

There are various small marks, chips and scratches elsewhere and the front bumper is looking sorry for itself. Combining these things, and getting them done to a good standard would be good.

I could put up with the marks and treat the arches myself, and get an ok match, but if it could be combined...

Anyway the problem is that the car is in Nuvola Blue - which is a bummer!

Is there anywhere happy to deal with awkward paints like this? (for those who don't know, it's a pearlescent: pale blue with gold flake in the lacquer)

Anywhere that has experience, and would happy to give it a go? Any ideas on cost?

Cheers

Felix

I had my Vectra painted here weston super mare north somerset ? car accident body work repairs, re-sprays, scratches, dent removal that was front wings and bonnet with the rear arch filled (dent by some *** in a merc) and a really cheep price, it was metallic blue and he blended it in so well you could not see a differance though it was a old car, not even at night in the street lights could you see it........ but it was cheep and he didnt fill in all the verry little stone chips but you get what you pay for I guess

Hi all,

Thanks for the suggestion - I have heard good things about JB Autos in Bristol and Phillips in Yatton Keynel as well.

Tomorrow I will ring around and see.

I might be after a wheel refurb if it can be done reasonably

Cheers

Felix
