Default competent LPG fitters

Hi all, recently managed to get hands on a lovely A8L but as I want to have it long term daily driver I want to convert to LPG.

I am looking for any suggestions on good fitters, as I want it to be super neat and as much of the additional hardware hidden as possible. I don't mind travelling for the right person

i think they're a bit of a dying breed these days. I'm seeing more and more LPG stations either removing the pumps, or just not bothering to fix them if they fail, so I imagine the demand for fitters has probably dropped quite a bit too ?

Probably help if you give some idea of where you are.

Autogas 2000 in Thirsk were always the go to place around North Yorkshire for example but I've just taken a look, and I'm not seeing any sign of gas conversions on their website, so maybe they have stopped ? Might be worth a call if they are accessible to you.

I'm in Stevenage myself, but like I said, as long as the job is done right I don't mind travelling. Thanks, I'll give these guys a ring
