    My Coupe Re-spray with pics

    The car came back last week, only just had chance to upload the pics...

    The first pic is how the car USED to be, fully badged up and the old vauxhall grill.



    Many scratches, chips and dents here and there, even the odd different shade around the car....

    Here are the spraying pics








    Totally stripped, and not looking great!



    Starting flattening out and priming up.







    From here straight into the paint shop







    All getting but back together, totally de-badged! Looking lush IMO



    The finished article.





    I'd like to thank the guys @ D.Walker Auto's in sheffield for doing a top job, no orange peel effect anywhere and a totally shit hot job.

    Let me know what you all think!

    Looks really nice that - so gold!

    How much did that cost for the whole job including filling and removing rear badges? I think one of the cars could do with a respray and if I can't get the right coloured skirts then may as well just get the whole car done at once!

    The reason I had all mine done is because its an impossible colour to much, its actually darker than it was originally.

    It should have been 800l, but he was a week late because of paint issues so he knocked me a ton off..

    He's really good, even gave me a half litre paint back for future touch ups if needed!
