Back Door of [Land Rover] Defender

I reversed into a wall with my Land Rover Defender and the back door bent inwards.
Can anyone recommend a panel beater to get this repaired?
Thanks in advance...

There are plenty of good workshops (Konstanz Karosseriewerkstatt) in Germany.

Re: Back Door of [Land Rover] Defender

As the back door of a Defender is a flat aluminnium skin it's going to be difficult to repair it to a decent standard by old fashioned panel-beating so you might find re-skinning it is an easier (and possibly cheaper) option to get it back to pre-damage condition.

Thanks JamieBae, I'm thinking a new door. The central locking is not functioning so well on the back door, has to be bent out...
