Recommend panel shop for rust repair in CPT

Postby 2226cc on Sun Nov 24, 2013 2:01 pm

I have rust on my mk1's rain gutters just above doors and big a$$ rust hole on the tail gate.
Please can you guys recommend a panel shop in the Montague Gardens / Tableview / Parklands area in CPT that 1) does decent work, 2) is well/decently priced, and 3) preferably has good experience with these old rust buckets. :)

Would like to get the rust sorted before the SO takes all my remaining money!!

I'm not sure if there are any forum members from that area but I am quite sure there will be a decent panel shop in Montague Gardens :thumright: If not there, then Paarden Eiland will definitely have a few as well.

Oh, rather replace the tailgate :wink:

I guess I'll have to just pick one at random. Really do prefer a recommendation as you all know some places seem great but are just crap.

Yes, will replace tailgate as it has formed rust at the gas lifter joint. Problem isn't there, but the actual gate section. Basically, the c-pillar section at the gate has got a groot gat in it. And the rain gutters too. Gotta love Cape Town and rust. Damn car is just 7 years old.

Yip. :(

Tableview/Parklands area.

You know at the underside of the boot lid there's a small bump which is usually covered by a clear sticker. Seems that little bump probably been hitting the paint and that's what started it all. By the time I noticed the extent of it it was too late.

They're real fun, but nothing more than a can on wheels.

So, no recommendations on a body shop to use?
