Recommend a sprayer - Birmingham

A little toe-rag thought it would be funny to use a stone to scribble on my bonnet. Unfortunately it is beyond polishing out so can anyone recommend anywhere to do a decent spray job on my bonnet in the Birmingham / Sutton coldfield area?

I'd have a go a polishing it out first - its amazing what a proper detailer can make look insignificant

What have you got to lose? if you're going to ge it sprayed I would say its a fairly big job, bonnet and blends into wing at least.

Have you found any one yet mate?

Your looking at paying 100-150 depending on who you go to. You dont need to blend in to any panels mate.

If you haven't found any one let me know and I will give you a number. Send me a message. Because the paint the sprayer gets off the paint mixer is bang on to the paint work on your car so you won't see different shades or anything but the paint is expensive not by much. if you spend that extra money you get a great job.

The dudes work is great and he works on new cars etc

We use a body shop on our road called Advance Auto Accident Repair. Ask to speak to John or Gary and say Beeches Recovery gave you their number - 0121 356 1511.

Edit - Great Barr area so local for you too. If you do go with them pop in and see us too?

Still going to get it resprayed as there are a couple of stone chips; but certainly improved it polishing

Im surprised how well it turned out, i thought it was beyond polishing.

Dont get me wrong, up close at certain angles it is still visible and will be resprayed to completely remove, but from a couple of feet away to the naked eye it has gone lol
