Yeah I know exactly where that is, cheers man. Went to that other shop last night and they said around 8-9 grand for the rust to be cut out and closed door respray haha. Hopefully these guys might be a bit cheaper...

Yeah that sounds about right, with venetians too? I went to the one just off main north road by the airport, like off of kesters road and down a service road. Their name was something auto refinishers not sure if it was adelaide auto refinishers.. They didn't seem too keen for the work, said it'd be 8 to 9 grand and referred me to a place called Manchester Crash in Salisbury. So I'll speak to them after trying VIP Customs
