    Don't discount Dick Lovett Spraymaster in Swindon, stunning job but they're not cheap

    And lastly I know it's a trek but these guys repainted my 599, the finish was like glass and truly superb and I'm sure they'll be very competitve, speak to Tim Denney

    Brilliant to know, Southampton's 10miles away for me. I need a bit doing so will call them

    Speak to Tim@Walkersport. That price quoted looks overpriced.

    Thanks all for the responses. For future ref and so I don't loose anything, I've had the following companies recommended/suggested...

    - Autotec Classic Cars Andoversford Glouc (personnel recommendation from a 328 owner who had a full respray);

    - Everyway Solutions Southampton (Personnel recommendation; thanks Mark )

    - Specialised at Calcot (Personal recommendation; thanks Mark )

    - Riviera Wallingford (Personal recommendation, thanks Dave );

    - Motorsport Services ltd, Brackely (2nd hand personal recommendation);

    - Merlin bodycraft, Brackely (2nd hand personnel recommendation);

    - Spray Master (DL's in house body shop!);

    - Tim Walker. (Obviously but I forgot; thanks Malc!)

    - Mitchell Motors (who I've come across)

    Based on likely cost/location/where we regularly travel to I'm going to contact Autotec and Everyway and possibly Riviera.


    I'll let you know how I get on!


    (Previous company also quoted 5-7k for a front end respray...uhh no thanks!)

    Can also recommend Ty at Riviera. He's done some great work on my 308GT4 over the last 5 years. Removing rot and redoing paint. Top bloke

    Hi Adrian

    i missed a link in my original post, these guys were highly recommended to me and apparently have done multiple concours winning classic Ferraris (Allegedly even DL send customers there) reasonably local to you, I didnt use them as they were about 1.5 x price of Everyway http://www.adygodwincarrepairs.co.uk

    I have had various bits done, including a bumper respray twice and a full bare metal respray of another car at Haywards Classics in Sittingbourne (previously Panel Craft Elite).

    You will see an extraordinary number of Ferrari son their webpage as they do all the cars for a local indy

    I thoroughly recommend Shaun.

    Got a quote from these guys adygodwincarrepairs and were ever so slightly cheaper than DL Spraymaster. But I went with Spraymaster for a total front end respray on the 360 including sills and a wing mirror. Job was 4K .

    Was going to get a quote from Riviera but never got there in the end as wasted too much time trying to find Ady Godwin. In the middle of nowhere but turns out I drove past the place about 5 times.

    Probably wouldn't go back to Spraymaster as they didn't connect the Washer jet pipes back so water just pissed out all over the floor and the passenger door card wasn't fitted back correctly. They denied they took it off but they had to to remove the mirror.

    Don't forget they do body work for all their dealerships not just Ferrari.

    List updated with additional recommendations, thanks everyone for the input, much appreciated

    I've gota quote back from Autotec (less than 1/2 previous quote), waiting one from Ady Godwin. I've gone for these two as they are close ish, and I think I will just get the bumper done for now. I will also probably drop Everyway a call Monday; ran out of time last week...clients wanting work done...bloody outrageous behaviour

    - Everyway Solutions Southampton (Personnel recommendation; thanks Mark);

    - Motorsport Services Ltd, Brackely (2nd hand personal recommendation);

    - Merlin Bodycraft, Brackely (2nd hand personnel recommendation);

    - Spray Master (DL's in house body shop! Not really recommended by Andy );

    - Tim Walker. (Obviously...but I forgot; thanks Malc!);

    - Mitchell Motors (who I've come across);

    - Ady Godwin car repairs (2nd hand recommendations; thanks Mark and Andy);

    - Haywards Classics in Sittingbourne (Personal recommendation, More than) Bit far for me unfortunately.
