oh, I'm in no rush, but its so cold and damp now that any hope of painting it myself and even hoping for any half decent finish is out the window.

its pissed it down with rain virtually every day here for the past three months (or that's what it feels like)

the money that I would have spent on a sprayzebo and some heaters can go direct to the paintshop!

id rather crack on with the guts of the thing, and when it comes back all nice and shiny, just put it back together rather than getting all stressed with how bad the paint is going on.

painting is really not something I'm good at if a decent finish is desired!

ive seen some photos of progress at the bodyshop and it looks amazing - all the dents are been beaten out and everything

unfortunately cannot share them as the location of the bodyshop is a secret!
