spraying
« on: 14:35, Sun 25 January 2009 »
ok guys my front bumper is forever getting worse with it being so low stone chips are becoming large gaps in the paintwork :(  Went to a local spray shop the other day and they quoted me 220 plus vat for the front bumper in pearly white, this included smoothing the red line strip.

Basically i wondered how this price faired up with anyone else thats had paintwork done recently?  :oops:

I was also thinking perhaps to just get hold of a phase 2 bumper and get that sprayed up.. do you think i should keep it all phase 1? I just love the lip on the front of the phase 2 bumper... :)  descisions descisions

Just thought i'd mention this cos its funny, we all get stupid comments from people about our 5's and how rare they are, yesterday a guy asked me "is it real?"....
 :lol:  i just couldn't stop laughing at the guy... should have told him to pinch himself  :wink:
I got 5 on it..

I had the bumper sprayed on my KA (thaks to Hartwell Ford for the scrape  :evil: ) which is in 4 parts and it was 190
Don't smooth the red strips man. They keep it orriginal.

But if you do I'd gladly have them from you  :P

If you weren't so far from me i could get it done a lot cheaper for you! Unless you could get it to the midlands?

Keep it looking original dude!

Phase 1 OE spec.  Dont change it. If you want a Ph 2 car, buy a ph 2 car.

I'd give it a go yourself at that price.  Ive got to respray 2 bumpers, a rear arch and a grill.  I'm going to have to do it myself as well. :shock:  :?
