    Default Adelaide Panel shop recommendations - Peugeot 203

    I have a stripped 1951 203 Sedan body which has been dipped and primed with all the rust and new floors put in.

    The next step is to get the complete body to a panel shop who is skilled in restoration work but as I have not lived in Adelaide for over 15 years I am a little out of touch so wondering if anybody could recommend a panel shop here in Adelaide ?

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Sometimes some one "on the grapevine will know someone who will do a brilliant job at WAY less than some of the horribly over priced....way below standard jobs that 'some' ...who think they are way beyond perfect charge.I had a long...in depth chat one day speaking to a guy selling paint shop equipment at Bendigo Swap YEARS ago...Turns out he was the guy who had flown to U.S. and painted Efferjy.....PRICE DOES NOT GUARANTEE QUALITY....A mate ...operated his own panel shop in Ballarat..39.5 YEARS....still owns shop but has work done on his Pugs...Buick..whatever he has by a guy he knows...immensely happy with the work.Happy to pass info onto u if you don't find a 'happy place'...over there...many a time we have discussed the immensely pathetic work we have seen come out of panel shops...cheers..

    I would happily hand my pride and joy over to Adelaide Hills Panel Works Adelaide Hills Panelworks, classic, vintage, veteran car restoration
    Their workmanship and skill is fabulous IMHO and they know their way around an English wheel

    Yep I'd second JMans recommendation for AHP. They did the repairs on my old R8 after a head on with a motorcyclist and did an excellent job!

    The 404 ute that I bought of you a few years back was repaired and painted by Premium Autobodies in Wingfield (https://www.facebook.com/PremiumAutobodies/).

    Phill did an awesome job. He also did my 504. Couldn't be happier.

    Another recommendation for AHP. Rob did our Kombi and his teams work is exceptional.
    They were working on a 2CV a while back too - #grey - looks awesome.

    Ill keep an eye out for you - just over the road from me
