Speak to Solihull Maserati - they matched Blu Oceano on mine perfectly when doing headlight washer covers and front valance

Chartwell in Derby would be my first choice - worth travelling for.

Regular body shop, I recommend Auto Body Tech in Nailsworth. Just done the bumper on my BluO QPV. Used them for other work too. One of the owners, Chris, has a QP6.

Or PRH in Stonehouse. Shop looks like sh1t but has done good work for me on previous (Black) QPV.

For detailing, mine is going in to Zero Boundaries in Wootton Under Edge in a couple of weeks from now for paint correction and ceramic coating. Not used them before , but they have fantastic reviews, and he seems like good guy.
The QP is looking pretty darn shiny and sparkly after a couple of days at Zero Boundaries in Wotton Under Edge. Very happy.

Very nice indeed, Mark.
And I'm more than grateful for all you for advice.
The GT is currently at Autoshop of Brimscombe, selected by evidence of some quite challenging pearlescent and goniochromic paintwork on the Aston Martins and others seen there.
I'll report back.

Ah yes, I meant to mention them. Not used them, but got a quote a few years ago. Place was full of Astons and high end Jags.

You do have to drive it don't you?!
I very rarely had to use my wipers after my 911 was ceramic coated. The water just rolls off.
Not treated the Maser to coating yet. Still caressing the curves with conventional carnauba.

Having now had a closer look, I'm pleased to say that it seems an excellent job. No corners cut, and although the damage was an isolated small dent on the door, two and a half or even three panels attended, excellent blend and scintillation.
They even did the headlamp washer pop outs which were the wrong colour, and look as if they've polished out the usual dry marks on both the passenger and driver door windows. My bumper looks as good as new too.

Quite a few decent Aston Martins with difficult finishes. AM approved.
Extremely attentive

And of course, Annie, thank you for the recommendation for the classic restorations in Malvern too.
You know you're both welcome anytime
