    Default Lacquer Missing - Cure?

    An over-enthusiastic valet pressure washer has stripped off small (3-inch) patches of lacquer under each of the windows. Has anyone any experience of a partial panel repair or will the whole thing need to be done? Whir will shortly have his annual service - is this something for a main dealer to take on or could an independent do the job?

    For gods sake don’t take it to a main dealer. Most dealers don’t have body shops so will simply subcontract it to someone else and add some fat for themselves, or if they do have a bodyshop they will charge top dollar for it and having seen some repairs from MB body shops they’re really not all that good.

    Take it to a local decent body repair company. It’s impossible to say whether localised repairs are possible or if the panels will need to be resprayed.

    What colour is Whir anyway ?

    I’ve got a brand new (BNIB) 451 Coupé nearside door in black if you’re interested and the colour matches ? £50plus carriage

    Thanks all. I've found a local firm in Kent who are adamant they can sort Whir out. I'll let you all know how it works out.
