    Question Dent Master/Chipsaway and the like.

    Dent Master/Chipsaway etc.etc.
    What finish do you get when you have chips done by these type of companies ?
    Does the "repaired" area stand out in any way ?
    Got some cosmetics i would like doing but would like to know how visible the repair is. Anyone got any first hand experience ?

    Evening Phil,

    goto your local dealer and ask them who does their smart repairs .... if there good there generally there once or twice a week ... find out what days they come around and go and watch them work... then you can see if there any good...if our happy with what they do then they can come to you and do the work "privately"


    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    I used to do these smart repairs and i would say that on bumpers/wheels they shouldnt have any problems hiding there work but doors/wings etc you need to make sure its a competent guy. It is possible to do these repairs anywhere on the car without noticing but it all depends on the guy. For the dent people id say you would need the guy to have a good few years experience. The guy I worked along side used to say that for the first 2 years he was still learning! He had been doing it for 15 years when i met him and he was good!

    Ok, thanks for that. I have loads of tiny stone chips on the front edge of my side skirts and being black, looks like it's fading to grey ! (no, not the 80's pop record !). Couple of chips on the front bumper aswell but i think i'm going to get that fully resprayed. Might get the skirts fully repainted if the price is ok.

    Well, been to a couple of places local and the cheeky beggers wanted £35 + v.a.t. just for a quote !
    Unless it's an insurance claim, you have to pay it !

    YEAH RIGHT, Shove it !

    Went to the local Chipsaway and wasn't overly impressed.
    I'll live with it for now.
