Default Good bodyshop/repair/paint Portsmouth,NH

Hi guys ,

Do you know a good/cheap repair shop near Portsmouth,NH ?

I hit my car last night . I was driving in the evening on woodberry avenue in Portsmouth around 8 pm and enjoying the snowfall....until another car just popped up in front of me from the Dunkin Donuts exit There were no other cars on the road . And he was just sitting there in front of me with his wheels sliding on the snow before he was able to pick up . I jump on my brakes but there was no way I stop . I was clearly going to hit him from the back . I decided to try turn in the same exit where he came from,but my car slided and hit the Dunkin Donuts exit sign . The other car didn't stop ...I can't believe there are such stupid drivers . No other cars on the road how he decide to jump in front of another car in such weather ...unbelievable .

Luckily the damage is not serious . Only replaceable body panels .The hood , grill and the radiator support need to be replaced . Not sure for the bumper .No airbags out . At least I will have a good chance now to fix the few chips on the hood :-) . I'm waiting on estimate from the insurance company and after that i will be looking for a body shop to repair the damage .I moved recently in the are so any advice on a good/cheap place will be greatly appreciated.

If insurance is paying, you don't want cheap, you want one that will do a good job. Sorry to hear about this. Yah, there are plenty of morons out there.

Do you know a good one ? A good shop with quality paintwork does not always mean the most expensive . There are a lot of small shop that do great jobs , I just don't know the area well

Route 108 autobody in newmarket does really good work. They are a small outfit and often backed up. It's for good reason though, they are really skilled at working metal and paint.

cote's auto body in exeter nh did a great job on my old sti when it got t-boned. they were recommended by a few people on the forums back when it happened and they went above and beyond any other body shop I've dealt with.

Well . I decide to go different way and do what I can by myself , acquire new knowledge about cars and and save as much as possible money for future mods and upgrades . So I just purchased a new front bumper , that will arrive already painted in my color code :
http://www.ebay.com/itm/380492371590...84.m1497.l2649

Now I need to source a Sports front grill and hood .

Does someone know an independent mechanic who can help me to check the suspension ? I'm new to the area and I would like to have a reliable Subaru mechanic to use for my car's maintenance in future . I pay cash :-)

Please PM me if you know someone . It will be greatly appreciated :-)
