    Just sitting in the dining room, overlooking the Chipsaway guy repairing two small but very deep scratches on Legend, which I have had on my car since I bought her a year ago.

    Was going to give in to a bodyshop but no time to give the car up for 1-2 days.

    The Chipsaway guy will hopefully be done in 3-4 hours, and a fraction of the price, although this had no bearing on my decision :Wink:

    Will let everyone know how I get on. However the Chipsaway Guys, Ian, has been in the business for 27 years and knows what he is doing and trust that my baby is in good hands...

    If anyone has any bad experiences of Chipsaway, then please keep to yourself till the work on my car is completed :lol:

    Brilliant job. Just a little bit that needs a good machine buff which is being done tomorrow afternoon (had the same problem few years ago when had very similar bodywork done on an Accord at a bodyshop), but otherwise really happy with the work. I was being quoted £350+Vat at some local bodyshops, and this was done for £99+Vat. Major issue was the fact that I did not want to part with my car for more than a few hours.

    Test of time will tell how it stands up, but for now it's all looking good!

    Will chat to him tomorrow to see if he wants to join this forum lol

    :Yoda:(just thought I would use one of the new pic things)
