Alloy Bonnet Skins

Post by mk1 »

Does anyone know of someone currently doing alloy bonnet skins?

I don't mind paying good money, but I don't want to be promised something & then end up waiting 3 years for it.

Agreed! If any of you have Instagram follow him, as he posts frequent updates of the work on customers cars and how he does it. A true craftsman!

Sorry to go off topic!

Paul is far too busy with working his magic on steel to do any alloy panels at the moment or in the near-ish future for that matter.

I spoke to him yesterday.

The Heritage boot lid is fantastic & great value, but I haven't heard of them doing a bonnet to match it.
