Paintwork

Post by adamsymonds88 » Mon Mar 27, 2017 2:36 pm

Who's good for paintwork these days, I've used Stormin Norman before, but I don't know if he's still about? The ole Exige needs some serious tidying up now she's getting to 90k miles :driving:

Owning the cars I do means I cant afford the professional help I need, so never believe I know what I'm talking about, have a clue about anything or mean any of it!

I had the front bumper & sills on my Esprit painted at Christopher Neils a few years ago and was very pleased with the quality of the work. When I collected the car it was spotless inside & outside, without the usual paint smells or dust - they had obviously been very careful & considerate.
Maybe not the cheapest but, as they say, you get what you pay for.
