:question: Hi, Does anyone know of, or could recommend any car customising/ conversion places in Oxfordshire and/or Local surrounding area? Their used to be company based in Witney called Wizard Conversions, however they disappeared about 2yr's ago. I have NOT been able to locate them even done a Google search for them. The only local company I've found is Mynheer UK Ltd, or also know as CandN Customs. however, I have been qouted around £450 for some interior mods. I have had very different mixed reaction's from people who used Mynheer or know other's who have. They do alegally have a bad rep, but this is the only local company I've managed to find! Any helpful suggestion's? Thanku :crazy:

Got to agree with Matt. Wizard were a bit of a cowboy outfit and this was supported by the fact that they went under so quickly after setting up. There was a company (thier name slips my mind) that were on one of the industrial estates on Station road, but they then moved out to an industrial unit at Crawley Mill. I dont know if they are still there Chris, but you could always take a run out there and see.

Depending on what you want doing there are a few places in Carterton. They guys that fitted, blended and sprayed my S and R spoiler did a fantastic job despite some problems. They are not a specialist mod shop but thier bodywork work is excellent R & J Autocare.

Hi Matt, yeah we defo should do, I do believe I see a recent post of a meet next Sunday 10th-Aug near Witney?? If so then I hope to perhaps see you then?
Nick, Hi, I did wonder what happened to Wizard, seemed they were their 1minute, then gone the next!!!! - Nor wonder if their workmanship was shabby! Many thanks (AGAIN!) for your input- Your a legend!!! PS- Regarding the CamBelt, I did check out the Garages you recommended, but sods law, they could not fit me in as early as I would have liked, but failing that, pretty much all in-all, everywere I have visited & got qoutes from, roughly were around the same sort price-range (some recommending replacing Cambelt Tensioners, were others don't and/or as I found out, replacing the water pump as this is located behind the CamBelt (Sods law again, I only recently had my Coolant replaced during the last service!!) I've got my car booked in today (Tues) for CamBelt and have asked the Garage to just check the condition of both the Tensioners and Water Pump, and go from there as to weather or not to replace eigher or both!!! Time will tell!! Many thanks!
