    Angry Just cost myself £650

    For being totally stupid!!!!

    Getting my bumper painted this week, so I've been building up the bonnet stonechips with touch up pen, so all have been filled a while so decided to flatten them down with fine sandpaper and machine polish the bonnet back up, so 800 wet, fine, 1200 wet, fine, 2000 wet, oh **** what's that White circle,,,,,,,, arrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhh



    So bonnet needs painted also blown into the wings, on an upside the front will be minted, the garage I have my painting done in is the most expensive in the area but the quality and finish is awsome, they paint Aston martins, bentlys etc.

    So I'm a little peed off at my stupidity and skint now as I've spent £650 already in the past 2 weeks, now another £650 and £165 for road tax at the end of the month!!!

    Your joking mate, your lucky if its a 5th of a mm thick mate, and as you now know no lacquer on VX Flame Red for some stupid reason. Have a look around DW, some factory paint jobs even half as thick as that
