    Why does it need a complete re-spray ? It doesn't appear to be that bad

    Well its 7 years old so i thought it was due a tidy up. The front bumper was stone chipped as well as the bonnet. Some other panels just had scratches and some of the bodykit was chipped. Plus spraying one panel would look very fresh against old paint.

    Very worth while on one of those IMO.

    I know people bang on about original paint etc, but fresh paint will be nice for the shows.

    From what I can see the one thing I would say is this...

    If you are going to get it done, then get it done right.

    Get the glass (especially the rear side windows) etc. off it or it will be spoilt by the masking lines etc. around them.
