    the front bumper is the really bad everytime i look at it at least 10 more stone chips appear.

    but its getting re-sprayed soon when i fit my front mount, as i have bought 5lires of paint so i can get it resprayed as often as it needs it and can use the paint on what ever needs doing

    Good stuff Mark. Guessing you and Paul (Chewy) will be having a tart off at the meet? lol.

    I will stick to the rough and ready muddy look ... the ladies always like a bit of rough.

    Yeah it is really bad isnt it.

    Do you paint it yourself?

    The last owner Scott said to me that they need to have a red undercoat before to blue overcoat.

    no i dont paint myself but a mate does it for me as long as i supply the paint.

    not sure about the red undercoat though.

    i just took my petrol cap off to get a exact match for my car and got 5litres so i have plenty and if i spray a few parts the match should be spot on

    Looks good mate! I did mine today but didn't have time to wax etc, will save that for week end!
    I got my full front end resprayed not to long ago, tops of wings, bonnet and bumper. They didn't use a red undercoat though! It was an excellent job though, but I did pay £700 so you would hope for a good job!
