I guess you mean suggest a Company who can do it all..

Only joking mate, sounds like you have some serious rust issues, try some of it yourself, youd be supprised how much you can do on your own, i was!

If you cant, try minispeed or you local body shop.

Loughborough isn't really convenient for West Byfleet though is it?

There must be a good classic car bodyshop somewhere near by. Try checking classic car mags.

They weld and paint well, but they're expensive.

And there have been horror stories. Check the thread

P&L Minis are con artists!

for some examples.

The nearest place to you I can think of with a good reputation is Dereks custom built Minis in Wolverhampton, but ask around for examples of his work.
