    Hi,

    my Nitrous Blue RS was damaged recently by a wayward brick falling from a skip. It’s left a smallish, but deep, dent from the point impact and also a long painful scratch in the paint as the brick slid down the drivers door. Question is, will this be an easyish repair, and can anyone recommend a reputable repairer in the North London area?  Prepared to travel a reasonable distance to somewhere good!

    Thanks,

    Tim

    I know a good guy in the Walthamstow area that does excellent private bodywork repairs. If you wish we could ask Kenny to send me your contact details so I can forward his number to you.

    Thanks, yes absolutely. How’s best to go about that? Or can you forward his details by reply?

    Cheers,

    I have seen a few repairs on Nitrous Blue that have been great so can be done

    What a shame, did you manage to get the drivers details?

    That’s the one reason I wouldn’t buy a blue one: looks nice (if you’re Graham Norton’s interior designer), but must be a pig to match. I’d buy a black one all day.

    Thankfully yes, they have agreed to pay for the repair, but was hoping I wouldn’t have to go down the route of a door respray.  Firstly because I don’t know how well it will blend in, but also because it may then need to involve their insurers and whole convoluted other avenue.

    I was hoping a good quality repair from a trusted bodyshop would do the trick – going to call RS77’s man!

    Pleased you got his details, please keep us updated on your progress on the repairs. Everything crossed you get it sorted out satisfactorily.

    I had a horrible paint fault on my NB RS from delivery, it was along the outside at the bottom of the passenger door. The garage got their paint chap to hand touch it in. You wouldn’t know it was there now, first class job. Hopefully you can get some sort of smart repair done.
