Any of you chaps know a decent body shop in the Central London area? preferably North as I'm in Camden.

I got a quote from an Aston/Jag place round here and it's extremely expensive so need alternatives.

Cheers
Chris.

Mike's Coachworks on Torbay Street is probably your closest that I'd be happy having some work done at.
Speak to Abdul if possible for the best price.

There used to also be another body shop at the other end of the road. Can't remember the name, but if Jack still runs it he used to produce decent results at a sensible price also.

It's blue and silver and I'm often in those areas, but it's on a regular 04 plate so I guess there must be another in the neighbourhood.
