Remember this?

1DA63073-D523-4691-BE7F-15798A6C8A65-112

Its now like this...

F9544B23-2E00-4D4D-9853-E6BBC1DACA63-329

Just a few bits to finish up and its off for an mot (we only painted the doors and bonnet, we did no bodywork on it, was just a quick job for a customer who wanted us to do a few bits and put it back together)

We just took a step forward to being a completely self reliant company, as now can mix our own paint up to any colour as we have a paint mixing set up, so if anyone wants paint, we can mix it to any colour :)
