Looking for a Good Bodyshop. Peterborough

Hi Guys. I am looking at getting the wheel arch trims and front colour coded. What sort of costs would be involved.
Anyone have recommendations in the Peterborough area.

you'll be looking at +500 for the trims to be colour coded if you want a decent job doing I'm looking at wrapping them but apparently it doesn't stick well to the textured plastic hydro dipping is another alternative which costs about half that of paint but again not sure how this will take to the plastic trims. Paint has guarenteed finish and lifetime but you pay that extra cash for it

Thanks for the response. I'm just back from Threeways in Walton, they've been there a long time that I know of (1996). It is a preferred repairer for some of the big insurers. They did an excellent job on my Puma which got rear ended some time back. The Manager had a good look at my car and sensed my pride in it. I also showed him two CTR alloys which needed tidying up before I get a good deal on some boots and fitting them. Then I will swop the originals for the CTR wheels. He has quoted me 400 inc which I thought was a good deal. Will upload some pics when the whole job is done.

Real good job... Had the alloys sprayed as well as the wheel arches. Word of warning to self. Do not put new tyres on recently painted wheels. Allow between 1 + 2 weeks in a warm environment to ensure the paint has fully hardened

Hi mates! Here in Portugal my Honda dealer wants 250 for the arches color coded! Plastics are sanded, them coated 3 times... Handwork + paintjob. I'm tempted to go for it!
