Re: What to ask of a Panelbeater for this repair?

Is the mechanic paying for the repairs out of his own pocket or via his business insurance policy? He should hold trade insurance cover for all aspects of his garage business so why not lodge a claim on his insurance?
In the pic it does look like the car has been raised in the wrong place. Probably best to consult two or three repairers and ask their recommendation of the best repair method and take it from there. If your car is made in 2000 then there's bound to be corrosion somewhere along the seams or inside the sill section after 13 years.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
