"Toby" arrived back from Finch's following remedial work to the drivers door paint chip. Autostyl have managed an edge to edge match and i am delighted with the result, it's just a pity it took over six months to complete

Owch, never happy to hear about unplanned repairs, but after hearing that the drivers door is off, I thought it best to ask a question on the door pins you had made up.
