Hope I'm not breaking any forum rules here but wanted to share this.
I have a great couple of chaps who are local to me and are providing a guiding hand with my S2 bodywork.
They are time served metalworkers who have spent their working life doing bodywork restorations for all sorts of classic cars, panel beating, shrinking, stretching, English wheel etc. and are starting to branch out on their own. They have set up a company called Cheltenham Vintage and Classic and can be found on Youtube, as Vintage and Classic Metalwork and Facebook as Cheltenham Vintage and Classic.
They have started running courses aimed at people just like us, home restorers looking to learn or improve our skills. I did a welding course a couple of weekends ago, honing my skills with my Mig. It was a 4 hr course with one to one tuition, tailored to our skills to help improve our results. I came away with a huge amount more confidence and knowledge in using my MIG to weld 1mm steel. They will also do TIG courses and are looking to do panel beating and bodywork stuff as well. Best £200 I have spent in long time. As said in the title I know this won't be appropriate to lots out there, but if you are within range I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
Plus of course they are setting out a new business so if you want some bodywork done by people with real skills and knowledge, give them a call. I think their details are on Facebook but if not let me know and I will pass on details to you.

If they were nearer to me, I’d jump at the chance to learn some welding & panel beating skills.
I’ll take a look at their site though.
