    Greetings, Anyone know of a good reliable body repairer in North Yorkshire ?
    Just returning from two weeks in France I backed into a small wall which someone had left unatended. It had no right to be there, didn't have the appropriate safety warning notice on it and it was below my site of vision. If I didn't feel such a fool I would blame somebody else !:RollEyes:

    Sorry, can't help, but that looks expensive. :Sad:

    I can hear the sharp intake of breath now.

    To do that properly, you need the rear elevation removed, the side wall repaired and then reset - not many do that level of repair - you can get away with it, it you know what you are doing.

    The rear skirt can be repaired, or sourced if you do not have the remainder of the corner. The rear quarter will need filling, unless you don't mind a ripple - and repainting, and then the whole rear elevation will need realigning and resealing.

    Not a cheap job, by any means. Source the replacement panel, reseal the rear and straighten/prepare the quarter and you may get away with a couple of hundred in paintwork.

    Hi, Looks very similar to the damage done to a caravan we had by a rogue sawn off Spanish tree on a site. I still say it wasn't there when I passed in the car! Catterick Caravans did a super job repairing ours but it was an insurance job. Give them a ring.
    Good Luck
