    A few people will think they know what I'm up to from recent threads, but they may be wrong.

    No mate it's already paid for.

    I only make purchases on my credit card so that it gives me a month to get the funds together, then make the payment as soon as the bill arrives. Also it means that I can rack up loads of points for cash back latter [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    No comment to the first question as that would give too much away.

    No sandblasting. DA, hand sand, etch prime, fill, high build, spray

    Nearly.

    What actually happened was that small bubbles (known as micro blisters) started to appear on the paintwork, which I latter discovered to be water trapped under the surface that was expanding and trying to escape when it was cold (I.E frosty nights).

    However the bodyshop thought that it might be a problem with the paint so I left the car with them and one of their paint suppliers assessed the paint and the bodyshop environment + equipment. The problem was then latter found to be with the air compressor, which was allowing condensation (water) to be sprayed with the paint.

    Therefore the bodyshop admitted that their equipment was at fault and are re-doing it. Although I am paying for a few extras [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Sounds like a good body shop. Some wouldn't have been so nice.

    The guy at the bodyshop is a sound bloke and I get on well with him [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Although he didn't realise how fusy / what a perfectionist I was until he started working on my car LOL (Not refering to the paint issues now. As there were a few other bits that most people wouldn't haven't bothered about as they were hardly noticable, but once I know something is there it bugs me)

    I've also been to check up on the work and he's doing a top class job. Fingers crossed that there are no issues with the equipment this time. As I was happy with the work last time (Bar a few issues that got sorted)

    Seeing as you've got your bumper off, I was going to suggest a little mod for you, but I think I might keep that idea for my car.

    Yeah I've seen it done on old beetles and and other old school VW's that's what gave me the idea, but I think it might make it quite hard to sell on again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img] (Not that it will be easy as it is mind [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img] )

    Note to other guys like HTC and god_thats_quick I don't know what he means by wheels [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/idea.gif[/img]

    I dunno, what he means about wheels. Perhaps he wants to know sizes and offsets?

    Oh yeah about that rear mod I mentioned. I'm sure I sent you a pic a while back illustrating it. Can't remember for sure.

    Ah yes I know what you mean now. I did think about it, but I was worried about cracking from flexing. Also it would be a pain to get the rear bumper on/off in the future.

    Why are you thinking about having some work done in the future?
