    Sorry mate your miles away from me, but i've heard that companies like 'chips-away' etc are pretty good for chips and scratches, and its a mobile service so they should cover most of the country.

    A local company like them done a few touch-ups on my mates car and it came out really well, bit cheaper too.

    I've used Panelcare in Rochdale on previous cars, they use the new computer thingy which scans your cars paint and matches it up with the database - perfect colour match

    They have loan cars as well so you don't get stuck - http://www.panelcare.co.uk/index.php they used to have a price list which was approx £100 per panel?

    hi, on a positive note,, lava grey is one of the better colours to match up, most body shops will agree with that:icon_thumright:

    No, not southport, about 15 miles north of Chester. The paint shop is Body and Paint, Hoylake, chris is brilliant.
