    Its a body shop i know and trust, it costs more as there a prestige place and its a 3 stage flip, tbh iv had cheaper jobs done before and not been totally happy. Id rather pay top notch and know the cars being done properly.

    They did consider a buff but it won't make a difference as its hit the primer. The original idea was to just spray the area and blend it into the bumper but it wouldn't look right due to the 3 stage pearl. Think i'l get a normal colour next time lol!

    I got the sills from epracing, there doing them cheap on sxoc.com atm as they have surplus stock


    The bodyshop basically said if i damage the actual bodywork it will be a full respray as they cannot blend the pannels....i need my bonnet painting as the paint bubbled from the exhust manifold heat so i'm going to have to get a quote for that...have a feeling it wont be cheap

    Looks like nice vert nice

    You should be able blend pannels? well the bodyshop I use can, and he dose a very good job. I had my front end resprayed and blended after I'd take it to the Ring last summer. Shop around I would say.

    On them carbon sills as well, I've thought about getting a pair.. have you fitted them yet, wasn't sure how they fixed to the sills? do they just clip over or do you have to screw them on?

    you can blend a metallic paint but not a pearl apparently. :/

    I was going to araldite the sills on, bought the stuff then sat down and thought about it and realised they wouldnt come off when i need to run the speaker cables down the car

    In the end i velcro'd them on, they dont come with clips on the back and i didn't want screws visible in them and i thought they might blow the carbon.

    Also fitted a red snap off boss today instead of the blue. Matches the wheel nuts have a blue one for sale if anyones interested?
