I have just been informed that the German run car repair centre (Pattaya Car Repair) has been taken over by Land Rover Thailand. A quick look at the company website www.car-repair-pattaya.com has confirmed this, and he will no longer be taking on any work.
I have used this company recently and found the quality of their work and pricing to be excellent. So as the wife has just manged to scratch the bumper on our Vigo, AGAIN! I'm now in search of another reliable repair shop.
Can any of you recommend another decent body repair place around Pattaya. I need somewhere that paints cars in a dust free environment in a proper spray booth/oven to bake off the paint properly.
There's no way I'm taking a nearly million baht motor to be sprayed in an open workshop, Thai style on the side of Sukhumvit road.
Recommendations much appreciated

Drive north out of Pattaya to Laem Chabang, continue past Laem Chabang towards Sri Racha go straight through firat (and only) lights in LC about 500m after lights on LHS is a large very proffesional body repair shop, they work for many insurance companies but will also fix your car for cash at a cheaper price!!!

Cheers Freddy, I'll take a drive up there when I get back from work next month.
Have you ever had any work done there or did you just notice it when you were out and about by one day?

Go to Classic Garage on Route 36, from Pattaya to Rayong. It's located about 1.5 km on the left side after the International School of Regents, just after Caltex Gastation. They do professional body work, with spraybooth. Thewy wots fast and the prices are fair. Paint is like a mirroir, not like a Orange.
Call the guy at: 087 821 97 52

you don't know if they do replica race bike paint jobs ??

No, they don't do that. But i know another guy who is specialized in motorbike painting, including air brusch, if somebody need it.
I don't have his phone number right now, but i know where he is located. He painted even my motorbike, a Honda CBR 400, in all original colors and decals. Excellent job. If you are interested i can show you where he stays. You can PM me

Totally agree. I hit a very large dog when doing 140 klicks. They total rebuild of the front end. The quality of the work and the finish were first class. They took their time doing it though. Living in Jomtien it is a klick too far for me.
I use the body shop on Suk in Naklua situated on the left going north just after SCB and before Sawang Fa Road. They are also insurance agents and I have always got a good deal from them. Never had a hassle.

Across the road from me 1996 Toyota they had a small accident to the bonnet and top of front wing + broken head light, rear O/S panel and rear N/S door all this was repaired and the whole car resprayed.. Now they had the car sprayed in a lighter newer Toyota colour, I was surprised that the inside boot and bonnet + doors were all sprayed in the new colour, the total price was 15,000 baht they got the car back last Saturday, on close inspection looks a good job.

Not sure if they will do a vigo. I just had my dmax repaired at the isuzu dealer north on sukamvit. The body shop is located in the rear. They re-sprayed my caryall bed cover which was faded, repaired front fender, and replaced some trim parts on front fender, also removed two stickers the previous owner had put on the sides of the truck. around 11000baht and looks great. Very professional and timely..
