Depends how Pukka a job you want doing. If its all the shuts and rub down to near metal, and any interior bits that show think thousands (2). if its a special finish like Flip keep on adding those pounds

I'm Here!

If its stickers you want.... I'm your man!


As far as respraying goes, it ain't cheap.

I'm getting mine done later in the year as a 'favour' so to speak, but its going to cost me materials still, and that alone looks like a good few hundred.

Must admit that if I wasn't getting it done this way, I wouldn't even consider it unless it seriously needed done.... Just think of all the go faster goodies the money could be spent on.....

Yeah I know what you mean. Everyone seems to want to copy my colour!!!! Been talking to Standox to see if I can get a new special effect paint there working on but it looks like I would have to chip in for it and I dunno if I can be bothered.

the thing is that when you have resprayed you dont want to track the car, or you worry that you are going to chip the paint on it!!

I know of a guy that does a good job on all the visible bits for a reasonable price.

He does cheap jobs and good jobs. The cheap jobs aren't good.

No personal recommendation but I've seen some good results from his work. He's based 5mins from my house.

I might be "back" but I never went anywhere.

Any idea who missed me from FDUK? Couldn't be arsed with Bolney, meets don't interest me much any more; if they ever did.

Still like Plough/Berkshire Flyers meets though :D
