Hi, Just wanted to share some experiences with a Body Shop on the south coast, AutoBrite who specialises in smart repairs.
I have recently bought a new RIB and the engine cosmetically left a lot to be desired as had various cracks on the cowlings.
I enquired about the costs of replacing these parts from Suzuki and once I got off the floor after being quoted in excess of £2000 I started looking at a way of repairing them.
I got a colour match from a paint shop near Swanwick and dropped the stuff off to be repaired... I can only describe the work as faultless, Autobrite did an amazing job and I feel like I have a new engine, even being able to repair the plastic lower cowl that was badly damaged as well as the big crack in the top of the engine cowl. The then also had the middle section resprayed and it now looks like brand new... Great experience and cost me a fraction of the new costs... very happy!!
