Fibreglass specialist near Bournemouth/Southampton?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, long story short, front splitter is KIA, hit a rock and it ripped it off the clam. Now the only real damage is to the mounting holes, didnt go far under. I don't care about slightly bent and dented underbody panels as they are cosmetic. The clam is fine IMO, just needs the holes repaired and repainted. Can anyone recommends a good specialist? Snows want £12,5k for the work - see pics.

12.5k - in pounds???? - are they having a laugh!!! - cheeky monkeys.... mostly it's a cosmetic fibreglass repair, and all is hidden anyway beneath new splitter when finished.

sorry I can't answer your question, but don't agree to that quote!

£12.5k 😲  Are they quoting for a new clam as well as the splitter?

Yes, they're certainly going to town on the new parts.  I guess they don't have the skills to repair the relatively minor damage and throwing new parts at it is their only option.  I would expect that a decent body shop could have it looking as good as new for <10% of that quote.

I don't have any recommendations for a body shop in your area, but hopefully, someone will.  Good luck with getting your car repaired to its former glory.
