Recommended garages/suppliers in Wales

Does anyone have any good recommendations for garages, body-shops, and part suppliers in Wales?

Maybe post them in this thread.

I havent found/used any parts places. Have used Stealth Performance, in Crumlin for some work on my car. Tony at Nissan in Cardiff is a tidy bloke (owns a Skyline, which helps alot!). I travel to get my car tuned (Rising Sun Performance), and have ordered a lot of parts from them.

There are certain places around South Wales, I would NOT use, but I am not posting them on an open forum. Just shop around, you can get next day delivery from most places, and some of the traders on here offer discounts when you quote your membership number

Koh, that's interesting to know as I have got a problem with my petrol gauge/float/sensor thingy. Also looking for somewhere local I can get KPH/MPH converted. Fancy giving it a go?? I'll happily help, but I barely know the back end of the car, from the front. ( Which does make driving to work eventful sometimes )

Thought i would just add MVS. They're based in Holywell, North Wales.

Tim the owner is a good friend of mine, he has years of building and tuning experience. He used to build and race monster trucks. And now he builds and races Skylines.

He has plenty of spare parts and is a very good custom fabricator.

If anyone has been to the Jap North West meet you may have seen his black r33 race car with its one of a kind inlet manifold.

OK, first tentative recommendation for NISS-TEC in Swansea.

Just a service. Didn't charge me Skyline tax, and did it on time with no nasty surprises.
