Chips away!!


Sandals

Recommended Posts

So after having a driving licence for over 10 years and not hitting anything... i finally hit something... and it wasn't cool. Nothing major, just frustrated with traffic on my way to work, get to the small parking area at my work, colleague parked like a knob and while manoeuvring in a tight space, trying not to hit his car... i hit a handrail. Bugger...

 

 So inquired with a couple of places and heard some good things about Chips Away... plus, they come to me and do all the work on my driveway! They did an excellent job and so I thought i would post a before and after shot. There is still a very slight kink in the fog light surround but it's barely noticeable. Not bad for £168...

Yeh my drivers side is covered in lots of little scratches. I just want to keep it at this level without it getting worse... hence getting the front repaired ASAP. Plus it really bugged me having the damage XD

Looks like they've done a good job for under £170 ,I was getting quotes over £100 to paint a boot spoiler off the car[emoji106]

Unfortunately mines got a couple of decades worth of dents and scratches to sort before I even think of getting started on the paintwork

chips away are a franchise place, so depends on if the local place is any good.

 

I used them for a dent/scratch on my old metalic black astra years ago, did a mega job, couldn't even see it once done. Was a proper old boy so i bet he's retired by now lol

Im looking at getting some dents taken out my rear bumper (last owner did it not me) and having my side skirts re sprayed.

all done in the factory black with gold mica fleck. 

£200 for dents and back bumper and £100 for side skirts.
