Well the upshot is that after having a Punto Mk II in lovely Blu Teseo for only six weeks the car was trashed by some crazy woman who thought it was her ex-boyfriend's car. I'm not going through insurance as the reason I have the car is because the old one was written off and because my local Fiat garage told me the amount of work which needed doing would probably result in another write-off. Ho hum.

Most of the damage has been repaired except for:

  • the bonnet - which she keyed a naughty word on to, it's fairly indistinct but right in the middle
  • the roof - which was keyed in one place above passenger side doors
  • the petrol flap - which was ripped off. I have a replacement but it needs paint!
The keying is not deep and doesn't seem to have broken through the primer but I am conscious this happened four weeks ago and I don't want it to deteriorate.

Next up yesterday a lorry caught the back driverside wing near the (missing) petrol flap as we were doing a right turn at a junction (he went too wide in his lane and caught the back of the car) and now have another small scrape (nearly all bumper plastic) and a small dent on the driverside passenger door to contend with - worse of all he didn't stop. (I refuse to thinkhow unlucky I have been with this car so far)

So the upshot of all this is I need a bodyshop in my local area which could manage all this and not break the bank as I am paying out of my own pocket.

Any recommendations?
