Hi, I need to have the jacking pint / sill welded on my car. Ideally looking for someone that works mainly on Porsche. I'm happy to pay a premium for a good quality job. Does anyone have a recommendation in the Surrey area? :thumbs:
 
A little outside Surry but not too far is Riviera Autobody, they work almost entirely on Porsche's and they really know the cars well.
I thoroughly recommend them, went there a few years ago on recommendation of Northway in Reading when someone reversed into my Boxster denting the front fenders and scratching the bumper and they had it looking like new.
Based on that experience I took my 996 C4S to them a couple weeks ago because I had some pretty bad rust on the drivers side rear arch and couldn't be happier with the results, again you can't tell that any work has been carried out, looks completely factory. Worth noting if it's visible on the paint the damage under is usually worse that it looks.

Thanks for you suggestion. I actually service my car at Northway, and they were the ones that spotted the rust and recommended Riviera's as well. I would be willing to take it to them however if I'm honest it's a bit difficult to get a response from Riviera. Perhaps because the amount of work required is pretty small which is a shame as I would be looking at a complete repeat at some point in the future. I might keep trying with Riviera as they seem to be worth it :thumbs:
