Re: Finally!....back from paint shop
Looking very good indeed! I have the same color 166 and i'm having front and back fenders, right back door and back painted in the next weeks. Actually there's a story there !
I was backed into 2 weekends ago during night and the f**** drove away. Meaning the door and back to the rear spoiler/fender need to be painted. 4 days later i was taking petrol at the petrol station, actually standing next to the pump, when another idiot backed into me while i was watching. Scratching the front fender/spoiler.
Luckely i have a friend owns a paintshop and is willing to do it for me very very cheap. He said though that this lightgrey color is one of the hardest to get right (especially on older cars) and also pointed out that it's got a alot of metalic in it. So if there's no color difference on your car it's a very good job.
One question did you change the door handles or are they looking good still?
