Hi, can anyone in the North East (Sunderland area) recommend a good paint sprayer - looks like someone has leant against my passenger door and left a slight crease type dent. I have a Chili Red colour. It's an 11 plate and I don't want any blending - I want the full door painting with the RIGHT colour - hence no need to blend or touch the A-panel or rear quarter. Thanks in advance. :)

If the damage is only a slight crease and not on a swage line and the paints not damage,d why not try and ask a dent removal company if its repairable without the need to paint it? Ive seen some good dings removed and you cant tell afterwards, might be worth investigating?
Whatever you go for Id try and avoid a re skin if thats whats suggested, the result is never as neat as factory and always you can tell around the seems.
I myself would prefer a new door complete rather than a skin if it came to that.

If Newcastle is near enough for you, I think Heaton Park Coachworks (http://www.heatonparkcoachworks.co.uk/) is the absolute dog's whatsits. Lots of top end garages subcontract to them and I've never heard a bad word against them, except maybe on price.
But dentless does sound like a possibility.

Thanks. I tried two different guys who do dent removal. No joy- the metal was distored and would not go back. In fact the very slight dent was actually worse. The two different companies were great- very gentle and took their time but could still see crease type dent when looking down flank. I have decided not to get painted- i have been told that even filling and smoothing then paint would leave a mark. And would be impossible to get a perfect finish. So, i have p.ex'd it against a new black jcw! Get it next week. Thanks for your help people.
