bonnet respray and matt black under engine

Post by dansutton » Sun 02 Aug, 2009 17:13

hi all.

I was getting a little amount of rust appearing under the engine at the front so took car into local spray shop as i also had a few other things that needed doing. The chap at the garage suggested treating the rust then spraying the front matt black. I also had the stone chips on the bonnet treated and filled and had the bonnet resprayed and also the the gills. Then i had the whole car waxed by the garage. I payed £230 for all this work which i thought was a bargain. Hope you like the pictures of the work done. (hope the pictures work)

Autolac, yeah thats "Ray The Spray", little back street garage, he re sprayed my old MX5 a few years ago, not a bad job. Quoted me serious cash though to do the stone chips on my Z3 so i gave him a miss.

Its ok if you dont take any notice of the state of the workshops :shock:
