Portslade panel works in Hove, the scratches arent the problem its the dent whole door needs to come off and be resprayed then the door needs to be blended in with the rear quater. Colour match is guarenteed, also the scratch on the bumper is pretty deep.

Prob not going to bother with it, still need to get in touch with dents....

Quick update just had a bloke from dentz come over, for all the scrtahces and dent it will be £103 inc VAT
.

They wont be respraying any panels, will do a polish and touch up, the stone chip wont be 100% gone but will only be visible when looking close up at the car.

Am pleased with this so will be getting it done lol.

Research your local chips away place as its a franchise, I went to them and they wanted to respray the bumper and the door, same as the other place. I will post pics when its done, but the chip above the wheel would need the whole wing to be sprayed to be completely gone, I am just having it touched up so wont be so visible.

I am using a local company called dentz (Paintz), might be one local to you?

I had dent removed last year after a parking meter ran out in front of me, went to cleam clean in Southdown View Road and got it sorted for £200, that included the dent removal and respray.

Check out the pic attached!

Yeah I dunno why they did that either, I think the guys that run ours are ok but have too much work on at any 1 time.... So things get missed, I just asked them what they could do and he went stright for a respray! Will deffo put some pictures up will be at the beginning of march though.

Gleam clean are quite good round here.
