Re: Bodywork and paintwork repairs

i dont know if its any use to you but... our local netto was selling a compressor with spray gun and loads of other stuff the otherday for about £60 ...then all you need to do is go down to your local scrap yard and get an old bonnet or some other pannel and then if you go down to an automotive paint supply place and buy a tin of paint that they have mixed wrong for a few quid and practice away,you know the saying............practice makes perfect.........thats how i learned myself. good luck anyway.
