I need a couple of stone chips touching up on my pride and joy:



The car is a long term keeper and while I don’t think the work warrants a front end respray, I want the best possible job.

Can anyone recommend an excellent body shop in the region, please?
Quality of work is key and I would travel for the right company.


Many thanks

From my recent experience I recommend :

Bakerbodycraft.co.uk


Incidentally this bodyshop was recommended to me by a fellow PHer in here.

I used SBC customs in Barnham broom to do the full paint job in my ‘68 Cougar. Top guy and a real enthusiast.

The Bodycentre in Norwich. Ask for Sammy Elwin.

They did a stone chip repair on my Lambo that necessitated a full front end respray, due to it being pearl yellow, rendering a smart repair impossible.

Outstanding workmanship and unbelievable attention to detail.

I used TSE autos on Scottow Enterprise who sprayed my Astra VXR and did a really good job.

They also recently had quite a few Audi RS6's for re-sprays and from what I saw, did some good work.

I would 100% recommend Chris Brown in Downham Market, 01366 386608.

Over the years Chris has done everything from touch ups on my cars to complete resprays, most recently on Caterham race cars.

His work is always absolutely first class and his depth of knowledge and experience shows in the results obtained.

Hope that helps.

I follow this guy on Instagram, his work seems to win a lot of awards.

Big into VW's but has some very special cars through his doors;

I've not used him before, but do see the odd "touch up" type job posted - I contacted him about my T2 a few years ago and he had a long waiting list for full re-spray works, I don't know how quick he turns around the smaller stuff.
