Re: Scuffs on plastic parts

That's a good price if its the correct colour.

I'd be tempted - but only if I had the facilities (i.e. somewhere off-street) to do it.

I don't want to be putting you off, or driving you in one direction over the other - just don't think it'll be done in an hour.

If the fittings are straightforward, you could do it in 3 hours all-in, but the problems start when people only allow themselves that amount of time before going shopping/football, etc - then there isn't time for a difficulty.

If you go for it, use an old duvet to wrap the bumper in, and to place under the car when fitting - just in case it falls.

65, plus some beer tokens for a helpful mate is a price that can't be beaten.


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