I only know of a good one just outside Linlithgow, but I presume you'll be looking for one nearer Aberdeen?

I've used two in Aberdeen, Steve's Autobodies and GB England, both do a good job for a reasonable price, what colour are you looking for? I understand some micas and metallics can be a bitch to match. I did have some insurance work done by Arnold Clark which was very good (but I wasn't paying).

Funny you should say that, I had my rear deck sprayed in classic red by GB England, cost ?100, it was a bit of a pain as they had to use flexible paint to stop it cracking, did a good job though.

I can recommend either StevesAutobodies (Rear Spoiler & Wing, Front, Rear & Side Skirts) or GB England (Rear Deck & TSIs), each have done various parts on my car with good matches to the original paint, both are reasonably priced it depended on who's busy (I'm so impatient). :lol:

The last work I had done was by StevesAutobodies (Side Skirts which are a perfect colour match)

Nice side skirts Stevie!! Just wish my car was as spotless as yours appears to be.

Still not keen on the spoiler though, but I'm sure you'll remove it in good time ;)

Cheers for all the nice comments (Wing excepted :wink:), that's all the body work done, I have a couple of little things to finish off like fitting running light bulbs into the side markers and a few bling bits inside and then it's all performance mods, got my metal head gasket and ARP head studs from Flyin Miata today, replacement head going on later this month and a Greddy Turbo about March next year. :lol: :lol:
