Cheap Bodyshop anyone?

Can anyone recommend a cheap bodyshop in the North West? I'm seriously looking at purchasing a bodykit in the next month or so but want it done as cheaply as possible. I may end up fitting it myself but need the cheapest possible re-spray I can get.

Any suggestions?

Cheap means s**t, you might as well do it all yourself cos anyone "cheap" will have about as much knowledge as you do.
If you pay peanuts.......

Wimmy try out a place called R&A Auto's or something like that. It's at Lane Head, top of Kenyon Lane, opposite the Red Lion Pub and the Lane Head newagents. My Dad had insurance repair done there and they quoted a pretty good price. The work was also pretty good.

They do a lot of restoration work, so they're easily qualified to fit a bodykit :D

I have seen some s**t jobs in the bodykits that have been fitted.
Screwed on by 2 long wood screws /big gaps were it meets the body and just hanging off just a sh** job
U get what u pay for.
Ok after market bumpers have to be screwed on so they can be removed.
Side skirts can be screwed- bonded or fibre glassed on and then flushed over so it looks like it part of the car and not a add on.
Same applies for wheel arches ,spoilers screwed and bonded so hard for it to be nicked.
It all to do with the preparation and the blending of the paint.
But it come at a price.
And GOOD BODYSHOP

Wimmy, I think theres a company called BAT Motorsport up your way (maybe a little further North), you might want to try finding them in the yellow pages.

Si.
