Hi all,

Since the purchase last January I have been cleaning the car myself, always following a strict 2 bucket routine. I have maintained the clear coat with regular claying, micro cutting and of course a good quality wax.
My car is a cabriolet so lots of extra care has gone into keeping the roof fresh as well.

Around 22,000 miles later however, and with no garage or driveway, the car has inevitably collected a number of things I don't feel I have the right level of skill to fix; mainly stone chips, a light scrape from someone who definitely touch-parked, and a small dent in the rear wing.

I'm looking for recommendations to get these issues sorted alongside a professional paint detailing routine, so not just a detail as in this case there are small body things to fix like the aforementioned dent. I'm based in East London so preferably not too far (Essex/Kent would be perfect), but will consider slightly further trips if necessary.
I should add that I'm not extremely wealthy, have heard of a few places in London that I could trust but their figures go into the 5 figures!

KDS Keltec in Chatham are very highly regarded in the detailing world. Not the cheapest but I’ve been to them a couple of times and been very impressed.
