Repaint of both rear three quarter panels, rear bumper, light covers, boot lid all in frosty silver.

Good points - nice job of the boot lid and rear light covers.

Bad points - the finish on the bumper is far less than perfect. The rear three quarter panels are finished to a mediocre standard, despite three attempts from the paint shop concerned to put it 'right'.

I would never use this paint shop again. They are clearly affiliated with the adjoining car garage (though they claim differently) and the standard of their work is poor. No prep, questionable coverage of paint.
Had to take the car back twice and while it has improved slightly each time, that doesn't really say much.

Advertised price for the work: £500 (paid £350)

Lucas Auto Paints, Grange Lane North, Scunthorpe

Product quality: 1/5 on the basis of the job having areas of acceptability.

Value for money: This would have been 5/5 for a good job, but due to the inconvenience etc - again its 1/5
