PostPosted: Sat Dec 16, 2017 8:19 pm    Post subject: Good bodyshop near Northampton Reply with quote

Hi all

I'm planning to get a few bodywork bits done over the winter

- front PU (was painted badly before I bought the car, lots of crazing and cracks)
- rear PU (must have suffered a minor bump previously, another couple of cracks)
- windscreen scuttle (rust around wiper spindle and bottom right corner of screen)

Can anybody recommend a bodyshop near me (NN7), please?

TIA!

Elite have a good reputation, on St James Mill Rd in Northampton. You could call Dove House and ask them who they use for their stock vehicles. Am sure they use a body shop in Wellingborough , on the Lawrence Leyland estate, but cannot remember which one.

I think it's Bedford Bodies, my pal has used them a couple of times and been good. I am sure these are the ones recommended by Dove House. At last open day the owner of the body shop manned the BBQ for Dove House
