Car spraying Berkshire?

Bit of a long shot but I was wondering if anyone knows of a decent (reasonable cost) place in Berkshire / Maidenhead / Windsor for me to get some paint work done?

I have bought a little something for the car and it needs spraying (already primed)... Can't wait to get it on the car!

How big is it and how good are you with a rattle can?

Speak to SSDD motorsport as they have a body shop in Staines area.

Alternatively I know of two more contacts, one in Twickenham one in Park Royal.

Pm me if you need any details

It's performance diffuser kinda size.... No hint to what it is at all... I went to my local well respected company and they want 380+Vat.... Seems expensive to me? I will contact SSDD, thanks dave! Any other ideas would be welcome!

You could do that with rattle cans if you take your time and it's already primed. I did a whole bumper that way. 380 is ridiculous.

Hmm, I'm not confident enough to do that, don't want it looking rubbish. Will it not need to be in a dust free environment and baked? (I know nothing)

To do a diffuser? About 40 I'd say.
