Dropped off the Vec at 9 this morning to have my bodywork damage repaired.
The guy has told me that it will be ready tomorrow afternoon.
I had an argument with my insurance co. to use this bodyshop which is local to me and came with numerous recommendations from friends. They wanted me to use their recommended repairers, who funnily enough dont have much of a decent reputation around here! And using the local guy saves me two 50mile round trips to drop off and pick up the car.
So far I have been really impressed. The bodyshop is run by one guy who does all the work himself. He has found a couple of blemishes on the paint not connected with the damage. He thinks it is probably a poor repair by a dealer as a result of 'transporter' damage, but he has said that he will sort it out before my car comes back to me.
Told me that he likes cars to leave his bodyshop perfect!
So tomorrow will tell. If he does a good job, which I am pretty sure he will, then I'll post his details up for you all.
