Any recommendation for a good paint sprayer in South Herts? I need a new front bumper sprayed.

My usual family owned coachbuilder/bodywork place is no more. :( It's now part of a major motor group. Phone numbers changed. Front office staff changed. Yard mostly full of Audis in various states. It's not the same as it was. :(

I know it isn't in Herts but Paul Taylor knows a good place in Reading. Perhaps you could drop it off to coincide with a visit nearby? Or arrange with them that we could saabtrek it to them or something like that?

Thanks Rob.

I may have found someone locally. It's just the bumper shell. I bought a replacement shell but it's grey not blue!

Thanks guys. Reading is a bit far for a paint job, even though it was my daily commute a few years ago!!

The bumper is at a local bodyshop. One I had forgotten existed :oops:
