    Vehicle : 1.8 VVT SRi




    Default Anyone in NE any good with a spraycan.

    Anyone here know anyone who does bodywork or sprays cars, my "cough" flame red/pink veccy is starting to look really sh!te now, its been t-cutted and colour-magic'd to death but that only lasts 2-3 weeks before it looks pink again and I think the only thing I can do now is get it either blown over or sprayed part by part.

    Cheers.

    I have done all my body kit/spoiler with spray cans but to do a full car with cans is something else

    Whole car with a rattle can

    The wife's flame pink corsa lasts about 6 months before needing a going over.
    Wash, clay, wash, AG SRP polish NOT T cut, then plenty of coats of polish and wax. Not showroom perfect but looks good for a 10 year old car. If you have access to a polisher, it will last alot longer apparently.

    Thanks all for responses, at the mo I am in the proces of drying out the dam car after the scuttle drain got blocked last week and I found 2 inches of water in the car :
    Im very close now to selling my 2.2 vec and going for a 19cdti, cheaper tax, slightyly cheaper insurance and better performance judging by my crap dyno run last meet, I think I'd rather spend money getting a better car than carrying on patching up this one, it dont seem worth it, spent nearly £1k last 6 months keeping it on the dam road lol.

    Dmf ? Swirls ? lol, sorry Dan, never owned an oil burner so I no idea what they are lol, thanks for that advice tho.
    Will deffo be looking for a 150, read in TV about an Astra estate that was tuned up to 220 bhp 354 lb/ft and still gets 35mpg, Im not going that mad but they are supposed to be a lot more tunable than my 2.2 that does 35mpg'ish now lol.

    Great engines mate, but when looking always check for swirl valve failure and DMF noises, as these are the most expensive to repair, others issues can be sorted yourself or for not much money. Have a quick search for tell tale signs, can be good bargaining tools too (as I did with mine). There are remaps for upto 200bhp that totally transforms the engine, but still gives the same (if not more) cruising mpg
