    Car back from Bodyshop fixed with a few extras ;)

    As subject I got my car back from the bodyshop after someone had run into it in a car park and scuffed the front bumper + broke the bracket, scuffed the side indicator, broke the front head light and scuffed the wing.

    Anyway I got a new front bumper, headlight and side indicator then got the front bumper + wing sprayed through insurance.

    While it was in there I had the front lower spoiler sprayed, side skirts and rear lower spoiler. They also sprayed the rear bumper while they were at it for free as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyway here you go:
















    Still not sure on whether they should have left the grill on the bumper black, but it's done now. I was expecting them to leave it.

    Anyway let me know what you think as the quality and colour match is spot on.

    Anyone want to Photoshop how the lower grill might look in black?

    I may get the bodyshop to paint it black.

    Vanilla magic trees are my fave (but I always try and keep them out of site) I haven't put one in the T Sport yet as it STILL smells like a new car!

    Re: Car back from Bodyshop fixed with a few extras

    The overall effect is an improvement on the original. I now know what mine would look like colour coded.

    I agree that the large grill in black might have been better.
    I also would have aked them to spray the sill under the lower side trim yellow as well as this would bring the level of colour to match the level of the bumpers.

    The face lift rear lights and personalised number plate disguise the age too.

    Top job!

    Yeah I wanted the bottom bit of the side trims doing, but they said they couldn't.

    I think I am going to get them done and the bottom part of the grill sprayed black soon LOL

    And heres one with the black front grill and my attempt at colour coding the sill.

    I think it looks meaner and alot like the S3 at the front this way.

    Its gonna be a nightmare for them to mask off the grill before spraying, thats why they will have sprayed the whole lot.
