    Hi Luke!

    Give these guys a ring, the owner's got a brother who does the old dentmaster stuff and is a wizz! He got some dents out of my Raider and my father's Merc:
    Gray's Bodyshop​
    Unit 12​
    Wharf Road​

    It was nice to meet you yesterday Luke :i-m_so_happy.gif:
    It's such a shame about the doors, but like we said, there has to be a good old guy around who'd be able to do it for a cup of tea and some marble cake.

    The test process done was...
    Cleaned - clayed - paint depths taken (this is how we ensured it was all original paint) - a finishing polish was then used on a soft pad on the DA to check the removal rates and see what would be possible.
    Using a more aggressive polish and pad combos will safely give better results but it's nice to see that something can be achieved with it :)

    I had my first proper look round the car today and even had chance to clean the inside and outside. I have taken a few pics.:grin.gif:
    Before IMG_20150314_114302878.jpg After IMG_20150314_124209904.jpg I will take the seats out and give it a proper clean but just needed to see how well it would come up.

    Very happy with how it came out.
    The outside I cleaned but didn't look much different. Really needs scratcher on it to polish it.

    Just had the panel beater (sprayer) round. He wasn't confident about getting the dents out the doors. But I will be honest I didn't click with him. It was the " I will do a good job in my eyes , yeah there might be a few blemishes here and there. But that's the price is what you pay for". :stop.gif:
    So funnily enough I have decided not to use him. Next chap to ring is the one big Steve gave me. lets hope he might be a bit better.

    Little update on the doors.
    I tried a number of car sprayers and dent removers and none of them wanted to tackle the doors, they all said they were to far gone. I was gutted. Then by chance I was given a number of a dent remover 5 minutes away. He came around but wasn't keen on doing the doors. So I got him to remove some from my PH2. I managed to talk him into having a go on the doors on the PH1 and after an hour on the drivers one he made it look amazing.
    This is before IMG_20150321_102113526.jpg
    This is after. IMG_20150427_201918064.jpg
    The picture doesn't do it justice.
    I've got to take locks off next so he can get in a bit closer on both doors and then he's going to come back and try and do the other side. :grin.gif:
