    Default Where do i stand and what can i expect.

    Hey guys, I booked my car in to have some discs and pads fitted. The car was picked up and taken to the garage by the mechanic. After he fit the front discs he realised he was running low on copper seal and popped to his supplier in my car ( his car was at my wifes work where he picked ours up). While he was there someone hit our driver side rear arch!! He didn't realise till he started work on the rear brakes.c The garage has had to obtain quotes to repair it and things are moving along. My main concern is our car is flame red and being a 2004 model it has slight uv fading. Two things i would like advice for is
    1, wil they be able to spray it in over a larger area without it being noticable?. And
    2, if they cant can i demand a complete respray?

    they shud be able to blend it into the surrounding areas so its not noticeable or polish the faded bit up to make less noticeable.

    a few yrs ago i was training as a car sprayer and came across this problem many times,

    1) it realy does depend on the car sprayer on how good he is ,even that will only get a close match,it is nearly impossible to get it perfect,but after it is painted and the rest of the car is waxed up only you will know the difference.

    2) as said it really goes on the quality of the sprayer and you have got something going for you and that is its still an 04 plate so shouldnt be a problem re-vitalising the paint ,
    again unfortunately it wont be perfect but hard pushed to notice the difference

    sorry mucker but have i just said everything twice lol but used different words

    It's possible but it depends on the sprayer and their ability to mix paint. I've just had both of my rear arches done due to the paint flaking and the guy did an excellent job

    With red nearly any respray will show up under the orange street lights.

    Someone hit it he said? More likely he did it while pricking about in it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
