As per title whats people experience waiting for bodywork to be done on their VX ? obviously this will vary per body shop but i've used a few now and GRP repairs always seem to take an age (or theres a long queue so it appears so)

Took mine into BackOnTrack on 4th Jan and 6 weeks later still waiting :-(

Almost tempted to call the whole thing off just to get the car back now.

Is this a typical wait ?

What did they say when you took it to Jez?
Is it a repair or mods?

this past week the nice weather I can understand you wanting to have it back , but I am sure as soon as the bodyshop is ready for you , Jez will have it prepped and ready to go.

Is it undriveable?
If not why do they have it if it’s just sat in a queue?
That seems like p*ss poor organisation to me
