Hey guys,

I just removed my bonnet emblem and it looks 100% better, except now theres an ugly hole in the bonnet :(. Who can I get to fill this in and spray it over and around how much would it cost?

Thanks,
Luke.

why dont u get some of that patty. fill the hole up slowly. sand it back and just spray on it urself....or get someone else to spray it on...works out cheaper and u learn something out of it. if u stuff up u can always give it to the pros to get it fixed.....i dun think price would be any different

phong =P~

Look into getting one of the ghia emblems froma BA/BF. Mounts flat to the bonnet, and looks quite good. From memory, the emblem is just wide enough to cover the existing hole.

Bog wont fill a hole effectively, over time it will fall out. You need to first fibreglass or weld up the hole then use a small amount of bog to smooth it out.

Best left to the pros!
