sweet sounds good, im not much of a panel beater but was thinking of preping it for the spray painter, any ideas on what sandpaper to start with and what to finish with? also anyone got hints on glueing the red stripe back together or should i leave it to the spray painter..

hey mate, do what i did, sand the grey section with 600 grit wet and dry and then 800. prepsol the lot then get a plastic/acrylic primer (if the scratches are bad you can buy spray on filler to fill the little bits if not a few coats of primer should fill them up) then sand with 800 and use a can or too of duplicolour (been and ED should be "dynamic white") then a few coats and your done, do it to the whole bar if you wana go that far. i masked off my grey bumper inserts where yours are red then removed the tape after dry, worked a treat but takes time to mask off neatly. a cheap solution really......
