International Motorsport Panel and Paint was founded in 1994 by a group of three highly skilled tradesmen who still carry on their tradition of quality workmanship and service. With its ability to repair common steel panels as well as aluminum and plastic, IMS is considered to be on the front line of vehicle body repairs. Only high quality materials and products, such as the Glasurit Water Based paint system, are used. This combined with perfectionist staff that have a keen eye for detail contributes to the good-as-new result of repairs.
IMS Panel and Paint is also currently involved in classic and performance car restoration projects for International Performance Classics (See IPC). Such projects demand nothing less than perfection and the results speaks for there self.
Along with body repairs IMS Panel & Paint offers service for repairing damaged or curbed alloy wheels, warrant of fitness rust repairs, and valet grooming. So whether it’s a quick pencil touch to get rid of small damage or a complete smash repair, IMS Panel and Paint can take care of it.
Whether your vehicle has been dinged in the supermarket car park or something more serious, the team at IMS Panel & Paint can get it back to its best quickly and professionally. With over 40 years experience working with new cars, old classics, luxury sports cars and every thing in between, IMS are more than qualified to get your vehicle back on the road after an accident.
The repair process is quick and painless, the damaged vehicle comes in and a assessment is made while you wait. A detailed quote is provided and once this has been approved the work can begin. The vehicle is stripped down and if necessary parts are ordered, the correct colour code is then carefully selected from our high quality materials for the particular vehicle and is slow oven baked. The vehicle is given a final inspection before being collected
