Did he do the whole car or just the front bar?

Which suburb you in Uglybob?

just the front - don't quite have the cash for a full respray just yet! you can notice that there is a slight difference in the colours due to fading, but its minor, and the job he did was very good.

i'm in carine btw

I was looking at getting a full respray done but the cost was huge even though it included lifetime warranty on the paint.

I'm in Ellenbrook.

yeah unfortunatley resprays aren't cheap :cry: i'm just going to keep the existing colour - when i get skirts on it etc, it'd be good to have it all matching up 100% - hence the want for a respray!
