Got My Car Back From The Bodyshop!

Recommended Posts

As some of you know I have been thinking of a crazy purple and black paint job for my MR2 for over a year now so I booked her in, in June/July half heartly not really thinking about it as it wasnt due in till October, a very long waiting list!

Anyway, she went in to be done on Oct 4th and I got her back today. Took alot of guts settling on this paint code... its a very LOUD colour!

I know I'm gonna get mixed ratings on my newly coloured pride and joy and thats what makes TOC a great place.

Personally I didnt expect it to be as good as I pictured in my head but it really is. I Have been thinking about designing my own black design to go down the sides but I'm not sure it needs it really. Might put a few advert decals on her along the skirts.

I'm looking at getting some 17 inch chrome alloys soon to set off the purple a bit and I'll have to get some clear corners as the orange ones just aint working.

Well here she is... well spent £600 in my opinion and worth the wait!

You need a set of my rear splitters and side skirt fins to finish the lines off.

They have done a good job, MR2's are hard to paint because there is little rubber round the windows etc.. but I'm well happy with it... its hard to tell it used to be red.

And at £600 its hard to fault it, we will have to see what its like a few months. Shame I missed all the car shows!..lol.

Yeah, I'm thinking that purple space needs a bit of black to link the black bonnet and the black rear spoiler.

Have no clue what I'm doing as of yet tho.
