Well went & looked at the R tonight for the first time since it went to the bodyshop, as its a cash job the lad is only getting chance to work on it after he finishes work, so that's why its taking a while.
As its going white again he's only had to scotch the paint back so not had to use primer, Just got to put arches in now as they are f**ked Shocked & its ready for paint Wink

He's spraying them all white then masking & blacking the top of bumpers afterwards as he reckons he will get a better finish where he has to mask it

getting there mate.That rough/textured paint is ideal gaz looks brilliant on the black bits of bumpers i even seen them use it on where the black bits are on the doors at back of the window ie i think its normally where there is a bit of plastic film.good on you for not colour coding bumpers i don't think it suits the R but everyone to there own i suppose
