Here's the list of repair certifiers:

Most of them are making any excuse to NOT take on more work, as 3 have been suspended and prosecuted by NZTA in AKL alone, with their current clampdown on rules interpretation or not following the manufacturers approved repair method.

There is more leeway with pre 1990 cars, however, the repair certifier will advise what's required, and who can do the work.

Welding certificates are those applying mostly to panelbeating, i-Car approved, factory courses for certain models etc, etc.

Any signs of previous repair, the certifier will require sanding/grinding back to bare metal.

So talk to one of the above before doing any work and follow their advice...
