    I'm getting my bumper, bonnet, and rusty roof painted on the 1st june. Once its done I want to do a full detail but I dont want to fork out over £100 for a polisher if there is somewhere I can rent one from.

    Does anyone know any companies that provide this service, or even if there is a member in the Hertfordshire area that has one and wouldn't mind helping me out :friends:

    Dude, if you are getting all that painted, will they not be able to just mop it for you??

    If you were closer you could have borrowed mine mate. I've got a garage full of stuff that you're welcome to have a play with.

    Hi mate is your S3 actually "Rusty"? :ohmy:

    I'm getting the paintwork done by a mate of a mate who repairs crashed motors and sells them on. I got a quote from an Audi approved body shop just to do the roof and they quoted £400! I'm getting the bumper, bonnet and roof done by this mate of a mate for £200 :o.k:

    I've already tried that route and they did the paint depth test to find that my rear quarter had been sprayed at some point so they wont touch it :banghead: that was when they quoted me £400!

    Yeah I wouldn't be suprised if it had the rust patch before because it looks like the roof strip has been removed and put back in because it has a slight kink in it! I've bought a brand new roof strip for this time. The previous owner was obviously a tit :asskicking:
