not sure, going to try a few differnt ones tomorrow starting with bennets in ayr and ayrshire accident repairs in irvine.
I wouldn't listen to your mate.

As a few others have said if it's prepped properly and plastic primer is used it will be fine.

Stripping the trims off yourself will save a few quid on labour bud.

I served my apprenticeship with Bennets, a few years ago now but the owner is a stickler for quality, if your going to Ayrshire accident repair centre maybe nip up to Bridgend in Kilwinning for a quote since your in that neck of the woods.
I worked there aswell and they turn out good jobs. (after I left. Lol)
