car painting recommendations

Post by elan3k » Sun 14 Oct, 2018 3:10 pm

Hi, my Elan is almost ready for painting and I am looking for recommended car sprayers. I am in the Hexham area but can travel as far as Teesside.

Hi Milton, welcome to the forum.

If money is no object and you want a premium finish you can try Heaton Park Coach Works they have worked on plenty of Loti and used to do all of F1's bodywork, not cheap but top quality finish. ... 3&Itemid=7

Any photos of the Elan?

A company iv used a lot is unit sixteen In Darlington.
My mate Tom Barr also shares the workshop for his detailing buisness. Both are great lads and very competitive and a very high standard of work.

I recently needed some paint doing, couldn’t get it in at unit sixteen so used eaglescliffe bodywork repair and happy with the work they did.

I've used Corbridge Coachworks before, and they've been good.
