Mirror Case Repairs


My mirror case repair service can save you upto 75% on traditional bodyshop prices. Mirror scrapes, scuffs, scratches, cracks are often repairable for less than your insurance excess.

A body shop typically takes 3 to 5 days to repair your vehicle, I can repair it at your premises within a couple of hours, at a fraction of the cost. M
ost bodyshops will tell you that the mirror needs replacing, even for fairly minor damage. I believe in repairing and not replacing, where ever possible, thus reducing cost and time.

My van contains a paint mixing scheme enabling all colours to be matched to the manufacturers formulation. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the colour to take into account sunlight fading etc, this is where over 14 years of experience makes all the difference.
It is very rare that a colour defeats me.

Repair Example 1

This Vauxhall Astra mirror case had obviously received a considerable knock. The owner took it to a Body Repair Centre who advised her that the mirror was beyond repair and therefore would have to be replaced, at a cost of £ 210 !!

Fortunately the owner contacted me.  Having assessed the damage I felt it was repairable and quoted the customer £ 60 .

Cracked Mirror Case During Repair - Vaux Astra

Having removed the outer case I welded some mesh to the casing, covering the hole, and then filled with a flexible plastic filler.

The mesh and filler 'knit' together making a strong and lasting repair.

Once this was completed the repair became a standard job and as you can see, from the photo's below, the end result speaks for itself.

The repair took 80 minutes from start to finish.

When you consider the car would have gone to a Body repair Centre for 3 to 5 days and cost £ 210 it is no wonder the customer was happy.

Repair Example 2

This Renault mirror case had received a scrape to the mirror housing. The local Renault dealer quoted £ 180 for a new mirror !!

Fortunately the owner contacted me.  Having assessed the damage I quoted the customer £ 45 .


Having removed the outer case I sanded the scuffs smooth, masked up the surrounding area, prepared then re-textured and painted the housing.

Happy Customer !!
