Gents

Anyone got any recommendations for dent removal near East Mids please? I had some tyres stacked up in the garage and they have decided to break free landing on the rear quarter and door panels leaving some annoying dents which I like to get out.

Thanks in advance

Jon.

Chartwell in Derby probably the best, but not cheap. They’re Porsche approved and specialise in prestige motors.

Bromhams on ascot drive in Derby also good, again not especially cheap.

I’ve had positive experience with both (wife’s Audi)

Do you think it can be done as a paintless repair? I can ask my bodyshop man.
Very sorry to hear it, it is something I fear with all sorts of stuff stacked near cars.

Yeah, Chartwell charge the earth, I think most of their work is insurance jobs. Companies like them are what drives everyone’s premium up.

Scott’s of Nottingham have a good rep amongst the east mids TIPEC guys I hang about with. They’re in Long Eaton.

Pop in if you are near me and I can show you my 300SL which he has done a lot of work on, the only issue is trying to see where he did the work. It would be great to see you anyway.

Thanks for the second recommendation I’ll give them a ring. Don’t mind paying if you get quality work, it’s when you get taken for a ride that grates me.

Don’t need paint to remove dents but car does need respraying but want to get this years TDs out of the way first. Just hate looking at the car at present seeing the damage my stupidity has caused
