Well, on Wednesday night I was out at my friends place.. and her driveway is like 300m of dirt road right up to the door.. (live on acherage)

Anyway, as I roll up to the house, her 2 dogs and their 6 puppies (for sale btw) come running up to the car, making me stop a little bit further from the house (crazy buggers running around the front of the car and the wheels)..

So I leave my car there..

We go to leave, and I'm backing up.. they come running back.. distracted and trying not to run them over, im slowly creeping backwards and looking in my right and middle mirrors for trees (was aware of them).. but coming up, in the pitch black blind spot, a tree popped up.. i only JUST got it, didnt realise i was angling up the driveway.. i only JUST got it, had i been like 10-15cm to the right i would have missed it :(

Anyway, does anybody know any good repairers in the Sydney area (with easy public transport access, preferrably around the Ryde area).. and the paint work is a factory pearl, reckon it would be matched all ok?

I'm not sure about the Ryde area, but further west there is a quite highly decorated (as in awards) place called Deveba Smash Repairs, complete purpose built facility. There's also Bowen's Smash Repairs who have also won a lot of awards, both are NRMA repairers too.

Also Colonial in North Richmond is really good.

I had my old 180SX repaired at a smash repairer in West Ryde (can't remember the name of it sorry). They are on Victoria Rd, a little before Hermitage Rd on the left if you are heading towards parra. It was that pale gold coloured 180 and they did a good job of matching it.

There is also a place I used a few times with my car before that (which was a very hard to match red) called Len Hollis Smash in Mortlake (near Concord), he was a very good old school panel beater. This was probly 8 years ago, so he may not still be there, but worth a look.

PM me if you want any more info :)

Arent the paint codes usually written on the data plate on the front of the firewall?
