I've just bought a semi-restored R32 GTR shell and need some rust repair carried out, mostly on the rear drivers side arch.

Has anyone had any recent experience of any local places who carry out restorations so i can get the body sorted before starting on the mechanical side?

I'm based in Newbridge

There is a place in Crumlin I've used in the past that were highly regarded but the last time I used them the job wasn't great.
Think it was known as church garage.
Another one that has a good rep is albion accident repair in Aberbargoed, they always have some nice stuff in there.
I'm going to book my car in there soon for a front end job.

Hello, I haven’t been in here for sometime sorry.
I’m having two cars restored not very far away from where you are. My Nissan skyline r33 GTR and a Range Rover Classic. ( There’s a fella on YouTube doing a few videos of the classic the channel is called Piston Broke)
The man doing the restorations, I put a hold on the skyline is Grant. He’s got Trinant crash repair centre. Love his work. He is always very busy. He’s a car fanatic and a Welsh rally champion back in the day. He’s worth a visit but as I said he has a lot of work on always.
Worth a try as you can just pop in and see him as he’s so local.

What about Old School Engineering in Blaencwm, Treorchy?
