Good respray place?

Post by jbo » Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:29 pm

Hi gang. Its time for me to finally get the rooco full windows out resprayed. Does anyone know of any rocco friendly companies? I'm looking for quality, not cheap. I'm based in Bournemouth but don't mind driving far for a proper job. There is zero rust on the car anyway so should just be a window, trim and bumper off bare metal job in the original black colour. Any recommendations for the and pics would be a big help :-)

Phirm FX in Rushmoor - i had my 16v and the Scala in for work with them in 2006 - paint still in excellent shape.

https://phirmfx.com/

Or - of course Rust Republic in Notts if you don't mind the distance - see my A20 project threads Jason.

They also did Henry Wrights Mars Red GTX 20vT IF you know that car?

Kw restorations is another good option.

Cheers for all your responses guys.

Sean - do you recall ballpark how much it was for the phirmfx job? I'm not looking for her the cheapest quote, just need to work out which car to sell to fund this :-(

Hi, a couple of things to consider. (I did post above, that might help)

- All good shops will let you have a quick look around
- Is the place clean tidy organised. All shops are working environments, but you get a feel.
- If the place is clean, tidy, organised, professional, your final job will be too
- Ask them what product they use. Most products these days are great. But some can be better than others.
- Most shops are happy to guarantee their paint work, dont be shy to ask.
- Please ensure they have proper paint facilities. An oven, not a "spraying area". A mixing room. Some buy product in ready mixed. It's horses for courses and I'm not being snobby, but your comment was, I wan quality. You'll get MUCH better quality from a shop with good facilities.

In fairness most do nowadays so dont be surprised if you ask and the guys seems surprised! All good shops will be happy for you to ask. All the shops I know welcome it because they are very proud of what they do!

Hope that helps.
