Sorry to hear that Andy! Guess you'll just have to bring that respray forward ;)

I bought a winter runaround (bought, taxed, mot'd and insured for ?400!) to help prevent such incidents so I'm looking to get Maxine tarted up a little. Depending on prices, I'd probably quite like to see dentmaster (etc) at a Tech event!

Humph I wish Si :shock:

Douglas I'm going to have a word with Dent Wizard ( the guys that were at Weston ) cos not only did they dent the wee one but also a small scrape as well, now I believe that the Dent Wizard guys can sort that to, will ask and get some idea on prices next week....

Jim: Have got an Almera as well but have SORN'd off the road atm as we wern't using it, couldn't face putting Zoomy off the road :( and it had to be one or the other :?

sorry to hear about your car Andy, thats why I rarely leave mine unattended in car parks. If I have to I usually park over 2 spaces, maybe a bit selfish of me but it minimizes any chance of some idiot slamming their door into mine.

Has anyone used other companies in the Glasgow area for removing small dents and chips/scratches in the paintwork.

I have a few that need fixing to get the paintwork back to perfect.

Recently Liz parked over 2 spaces at Glasgow Fort Shopping Centre, it was mid week and the car park was empty. When she returned she had an "illegally parked" sticker on her side window. Needless to say I phoned the centre manager and gave him my "Victor Meldrew" impression !

As far as the dent repair guys go, the best I have come across are ACCI-DENT. Have a look in www.acci-dent.co.uk

My understanding is that the window sticker constitutes criminal damage to your car, which is why a traffic ticket gets put in a bag and left under your wiper. I might be wrong but it was an ex Police woman who told me.

Don,
Thanks for the contact, Dent Wizard dont have anyone in Scotland as Douglas pointed out, so I phone Acci-Dent, they said they would do all the dents in the car for ?90+Vat ( a good deal in my case ).

Andy,

I hope you get on OK, I'm sure you will.

I've only used the guys in the west before, personally and on a professional level and they are excellent.

Perhaps you might want to clarify :twisted: :twisted:

Chic,

Clarification below.

On the personal side.
A few years back in our pre MX5 days, Liz had an Escort 1.8 Si Cabriolet (you're laughing now, but the funniest bit was the colour...Coral Red...I used to call it Salmon Pink Metallic.....looked good in the mid 90's....a bit like your shorts! :lol: ). Anyway, I came home one night and she was in tears, someone at work had dented the wing on her precious Escort. There was a dent the size of a "tennis ball" on the front wing.
I called Dentmaster, and it was fixed like new. This chap is now one of the Acci-dent team, (I think he founded it) so I know they do a good job.

On the professional side.

:wink:

Just wanted to know in case we end up near each other on Sunday and if the explanation was a bit like yourself - dodgy - then I would not wear the shorts :wink:

see you at the weekend
