    I can highly recommend Sutton Crash Repairs in Sutton Coldfield for body work.
    Amazing colour matching

    Also the bloke has a purple Diablo to drool over while you're there (If you're lucky)

    morn til 12 where you can go in and use the machines yourself (within reason)
    Good on price too

    Just called these guys, they are indeed very friendly and helpful, and seem quite reasonable on price and timescale too

    40 to re-grind a crank, and only 2-3 days turnaround.

    and they MOT on a pit rather than ramps, for all the lowered 200s out there and know that S13s dont need CATs

    Good thinking with this chaps - if i can throw in one too:

    Weston Performance - 0121 709 2300 / www.westonperformance.co.uk

    Base in solihull, took my S13 there for a small patch that turned out to be major bodywork!!! (goddam those lying swines at A1 valets!) They have been fantastic all the way thru - even dropped me into work. they specialise in all jap autos and have a workshop that you'd cream over (the dyno has to be seen....)!

    cheers,

    Matt

    C.J Tallis Ltd
    Unit E, Nutts Lane, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 3EJ
    Tel: 01455 890500

    Had numerous cars sprayed here myself, including the Viper , and have always been impressed with the results; price is also excellent. Will give good discount if you want to do some of the work yourself too (e.g. preparation). Our cars from work also have their bodywork done here.

    Probably best to speak to Clive (owner) as he has always been very helpful.

    What about the place where Stoofer and I got the metal for Hilda's sills?
    Forgot the addy though. It's right by the old drift house alpha!
    They were very helpful, took a cash (!) payment for what we wanted and cut it all to length for us

    I can't believe Weston Performance are so close! I must drive past them at least once a week!

    Saw them at JapFest 2 this year doing a spot of drifting (PIC)


    Anyway, a company I've used is CMS located in Alvechurch (M42 J1), they actually specialise in FTO's but Col who owns it is pretty clued up having worked on race cars for many years so should find 200's no problem.

    Full details:
