IT seems at times as if spring is just around the corner, and now a Portsmouth car repair specialist has said now is the time to deal with damage caused by salt gritting.

‘As the days get longer, more and more people are out washing their cars and noticing the havoc the winter has caused to their paintwork,’ said Gerald Cox, of ChipsAway.

He added: ‘It certainly pays to get any minor paintwork damage repaired as quickly as possible – to make sure it doesn’t get any worse and potentially lead to a more extensive and therefore expensive repair.’
