Re: What should I do with my bonnet

Got to admit, that I'd be electing for the wrap (special-effect or a straight colour).

That looks to me like the lacquer has been compromised due to bird crap and the remainder of the paintwork looks beyond help.

Provided there is no rust (or you deal properly with it beforehand), get it wrapped.

On a car that size, you should be circa 200, and it's much less time off the road than a respray.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
