body shop recommendations

Postby dickybeau » Wed Jul 07, 2004 8:59 am

Can anyone recommend a body shop in the central Scotland area who can help rebuild my 5 after front end demolished (nearly) It needs jigged, new or s/h panels and a respray in crystal metallic silver.

Don't know if you are still looking but

Stewart Roden 01506 890724
Glendevon
Winchburgh, Broxburn,
West Lothian
EH52 6PX

are very good. They have repaired my TT and my fathers Jaguar and both jobs were oustanding. Are you paying for it or is its someone else's insurance? They are not the cheapest but they do a great job.
p.s. There is often a lot of fancy cars and motorsport stuff there. They race Ferraris in the British GT championship

Roughly how much is a 5 (MK1) to get resprayed anyway, any ideas?

I understand it to be in the region of ?800 - ?1000 for the outside only. If you're wanting engine out, interior done etc etc you'll be looking at ?1500+
