Recommended Posts

I was hoping for some advice on a body shops. Looking to do a money no object full respray on my supra iv and looking for the best body shop in the UK really(based northwest but willing to travel). Also is there any garages who people would recommend to strip it and fully rebuild the car. If anyone has any recommendations for either and what sort of prices I would be looking at for the bodywork and the strip/rebuild. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Dan

As an aside to your question most of the glass on the Supra is discontinued so you might want to talk to some breakers first to check they have some glass available and at what cost if you are contemplating a glass out respray. You will likely find that the company removing the glass will not cover the cost of replacement when it is discontinued.

may sound stupid, but why would you need new glass?

You hopefully wouldn't,

Only if it is broken when it is taken out, or broken whilst sat somewhere in the paint shop, or smashed when it is reinstalled. Removal and storage would be the most at risk stages for the precious car glass. People are asking eye popping numbers for Supra rear screens now. Actually for all glass, seems even door glass is now marketing around the £350 mark. 

People should stock up on glass whenever possible as I expect there will be a day when an insurer will pay the gold price for it to avoid a large loss payout on a claim. I expect keron has containers full of it horded away. Along with the containers of stock wheels. Unpainted dash panels. ABS sensors. Hindsight is a wonderful thing but foresight also comes in handy sometimes to.
