LOVE your car, but want to add that extra personla touch to make it really stand out?

Then put your foot down and head over to Accident Express in Mundells, WGC.

The vehicle repair specialists have found a new way of using their state-of-the-art repair equipment – vehicle personalisation.

The company discovered its express repair booth and UV curing systems can be turned to more creative uses then just fixing scratches, bumps and scrapes, after a young motorist enquired about getting his Mini “pimped” up.

Managing director Tim Ryan said: “We thought it was a fun thing to do and the car is now a real head-turner.

“Since the car was finished we’ve been contacted by a number of people wanting to change the standard look of their car, although most aren’t after something as individual as this one.

“There’s a lot of interest in painting the standard black plastic mouldings the same colour as the car, which makes the vehicle look very classy and more expensive.

“Owners are also keen to paint the roof a non-standard colour, because vinyl decals can peel and fade in the sun.

“As you can see, we can do a lot to the Mini, but we’ve worked on other vehicles too – a VW Passat, a few Golfs and even a Bentley have had the Accident Express treatment.”

But while the new service is a novel use of Accident Express’ facilities, Mr Ryan said the company was still focused mainly on reducing the cost of medium accident repairs.

“Although our core business is still helping people who want to avoid making an insurance claim and saving them money, this new service is all about making the car look better and increasing it’s value,” he said.
