A few pics of todays progress on badboytunes car, the paint on the roof hadnt fully hardened, and was clouding up, we wiped it with degreaser, and it took most of the soft paint off! The 1st pic is of the 1st wipe over with just the panel degreaser!

2nd pic is of the base coat

Then 3rd pic is laquered

Its almost like a mirror

Just need to demask it, flat and polish it and refit the gutter trim, all sorted ready for collection!

Also, sand blasted one of our customers shells today, after extensive panel work, makes prepin it much quicker! I didnt get a pic, but its so much better to work with bare steel, than mess around trying to sand 5 layers of bad paint work lol ill get pics tomorrow when i do the doors boot and bonnet!

Thanks for looking

Not often you can improve an already nice car, but that looks the business.

Well.......................

I went to collect the car last night and the pic does not tdo the car justice. I will add some more pics to my thread over the next couple of days.

The quality of the spray is impressive to say the least. The price was fair but the finish is immence!

I can highly recommend lewis and his team if you need paintwork doing on your car.



Cheers

I can also confirm Lewis' work as he did all the welding on the Junker a while back. And in record time too.

Lewis, I need your number again as I seem to have an out of date one.
Also, might be needing a price on a little weding in the Clubby. (do you still want first dibs on the interior?)

Customer collected his shell, and left with a big smile on his face (keep an eye out for the blue mini at L2B!), as well as booking his mini 30 in with us for a full resto!

For quotes etc drop me a pm or leave a comment and ill get back to you asap!

Cheers!
