On more serious accident repairs and crash repairs, our panel beaters use body alignment systems to straighten the framework of damaged cars.

Expert Car Paintwork Repairs


Here at Armstrong Bodyshop Ltd, car paintwork repairs are our speciality. We use the latest low-bake oven facilities to achieve perfect finishes with exact colour matching. We also make full use of the latest SMART repair technology and provide minor car body repairs to customers in Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham and Redhill using these systems.


All modern water-based paints and 2K lacquers need to be dried at 65°C temperatures. The best way to fully protect the base and to harden a clear coat is to bake them. This ensures car paintwork stays resistant to scratches and weathering. The oven we use for accident repairs and crash repairs provides a dust-free environment set at a constant temperature.


Painting in the correct environment gives car paintwork a tough, durable yet glossy finish. It also ensures our Crawley, East Grinstead, Surrey and Sussex customers are happy with the finishes we achieve on all car body repairs undertaken at our Copthorne workshop.

We have extensive experience of specialist and custom car paintwork. In over 50 years of business, we have worked on many different projects including show-winning VW Beetles, classic cars and even stretch limousines for foreign hotel chains.


Our accident repairs, crash repairs and car body repairs aren’t just restricted to vehicles; we have customised and sprayed many items for customers in the Crawley and East Grinstead areas including motorcycles, scooters, hobbyhorses, fridges and even snowboards!
