more bad luck

i'm not having much look lately with my bella , after repairing my wing mirror after some ******** ripped it off , i parked my car up and when i went back to it i found some scumbag had hit my rear bumper and cracked it badly and snapped the reflector. Not sure what to do about repairing it cos its gonna cost a fortune to replace the bumper being colour coded in Nuvola Blue , so might have to do a repair job myself. If i go through the insurance they may even right it off because of the cost compared to the value of the car.
Anyone got any ideas at all?

At 10,000 rpm , no one can hear you scream.

Re: more bad luck

Repair the crack yourself then get Chipsaway or similar out to paint it

Re: more bad luck

i have already approached Chips away previously to see about a chip on my bumper , and basically he laughed and said he wouldnt touch Nuvola blue for any money.

Re: more bad luck

He's not a very confident one then , their supposed to be able to do any paint . Take it down to their HQ on Hoo Farm Trading Estate in Kiddy , see what they say .

I think Chris at Simplyalfas Knows a decent bodyshop chap , long shot but you could give him a call

Re: more bad luck

Sorry to hear the bad news, but I've used a chap based in Lye before who was quite literally £100's of pounds cheaper than other quotes I had. Thought it sounded too good to be true, but the repair work he did to mine was brilliant. I'll be at the next WM meet if you want to check it out. His work shop looked a bit steptoe and son, but that's probably why he was cheap. Not sure how he'd respond to Nuvola Blue though, but might be worth giving him a try (assuming this is still his No.): 07882 638244
