Good panel beater / wheel repairer in melb?

Hey guys,

Man have I had a terrible week.. I was all ready to put in my koni shocks and king springs... then first of all some guy runs into the back of me and drives off whilst I was shopping...

Then I added salt to the wound by smashing into someones behind... Was sneezing like mad due to hay fever... Didnt estimate the braking space correctly with my eyes closed :(

Anyhow I need to do some bumper respraying and wheel polishing.. I was hoping you guys could share some decent places to get these jobs done so that I can patch up my car for christmas without going broke

Cheers folks...

Re: Good panel beater / wheel repairer in melb?

I need the same thing done... I recenly hit a fence with my EF XR. ABS doesn't work too well on wet grass. Hit the fence doing less than 3km/h but a strar post still does a bit of damage to soft plastic.

I have been quoted $750.00 for a front bar respary, I thought the bloke must have worked part-time with some comedy writers.

So if anyone knows some info, let me + AUboy know.

Re: Good panel beater / wheel repairer in melb?

Bucket Panels, 24 Cochranes Road Moorabbin, VIC are great!
I went sideways into a metal pole supporting a guide wire to a power pole. Smashed up drivers door, wasted the door sil, the floor was crumpled all the way on to the other side of the car. Drivers seat rails were pretty bent as well. It was there for a good couple of weeks as I told them I didn't have full comprehensive insurance and I got it all fixed for $4,400. Paid cash as well
You can't even tell it was damaged. Spray job and straightening is immaculate

Why does everything always have to be on the otherside of the city... I might have to go and check them out... the next time I'm in moorabbin on a weekday...
