Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced place for fixing scratches on car bodywork? Halfords on the OKR have quoted a three figure sum but was wondering if anyone had an alternative. I've been advised that T-cut won't work as it's too deep.

Thanks

Me too.

Scum of a cyclist scratched car from back to front.

Any ideas?

Try Aston at Metro Cab Services 65 Webber Street SE1
020 7928 2303, cell # 07956 452564.
As the name suggests, he primarily does black cabs but he made a terrific job of my wife's metallic silver-grey Fiat Croma when some cretin opened their door without looking in a Tesco car park.
If he says fetch it in at 09.00 and collect it at 16.00 next day, he means it.
A nice guy who does a good job.
I called him on his cell phone at 10.40 today to check his address, so he may be there right now.

A perfect illustration of why these scofflaws should be legislated to carry licence plates and be insured, preferably on pain of death.

Is that the The Cut Side or other other side of Blackfriars Road? (I too have scratches, caused by other car drivers).
