968 Cabriolet: recommended bodywork specialist ~ 50 miles of Alton, Hampshire?


PCGB Member
I've got a red 968 cabriolet (had it for 21 years). It has the odd ding, rust spot and variable colour paint due to fading. Wondering if anyone has experience of getting that sort of thing sorted out and could recommend a body shop?

Thanks, Dom
Beware the Porsche Premium with these people. For my rusty wing bottoms I went to the specialist body shop that had previously done a good/reasonably priced job on the sills but they now do Lamborghinis and such and their guide price of £1.5k turned into £5k when I took the car in. Another well reviewed shop booked me in but sent me away on the day because he'd taken in 2 or 3 911 resto's in preference and hadn't bothered to tell me...that's where he makes his money I suppose.

I ended up at a busy modern body shop (Oxfordshire) who always likes to have a classic on the go along with the dinged rental cars. He did a brilliant job, so why not look for somebody good and local? Job after mine was a 2CV you're talking RUST!!
Thanks Graham. There is a body shop that does up Austin Healeys nearby - will drop by at some point for a chat...
