Exclamation HELP - Good bodyshop in Hertfordshire!

Good Morning all,

So a brief set of the scene.
It was a cold, snowy night... and I decided my car needed to kiss a lamp post... eurgh.

Luckily I was not driving very fast, so the damage is minimal, apart from the the lamp post may already have been damaged (and is now in a better place!), so fell on my car. This has dented the windscreen surround and the hardtop!

Now insurance have decided it is a cat S, I have disagreed and have said I will get a quote (they reckon 9k to fix!). Now the problem is it has torn and bent the bulkhead structure around the radiator (if this is what it is called!). Images can be found at the bottom.

Anyways!
I am struggling to find a body shop in St Albans/ Hertfordshire who actually want to take this on, so any recommendations? I really just need the dent on the windscreen surround and radiator structure fixed, everything else I will do myself.

Also if anyone knows if this part is actually structural? Or is it only used to hold the radiator, air-con and bonnet latch?

Cheers,

Jamie

Oops - Simon used a place over by Hemel that seemed to do a reasonable job, maybe they'd be worth a shout?

Plus one for me. Not the cheapest but very good standard.

The Norton Way Accident Repair Centre in Letchworth is very good and specialises in Honda and Suzuki (the cars that the Norton Way Group up there sell).
