    I owned a silver Gt Turbo, loved it.....WELL Done great work and in Silver it's very rare and cool!!

    Sorry, Who made the plates for you, was it DMB? Reevethorpe was only down the road from me, when it closed down I was tempted to go and get the signs down.

    Cheers has taken some time - but worth it!

    Hi yes it was dmb who did plates.

    Yep a very rare colour and am hoping for some good progress this year. Next stop paint.

    Not yet mate - got a guy from Bramhalls who's going to give me a quote. They were only place who were interested to be honest all other places said they hadn't capacity. Or ring back in a year.

    Finding a painter is a nightmare...

    Project delayed again - car is all ready for paint but struggling to find somewhere to get car done.

    Had one quote which was a lot!

    Unsure what to do!

    Ouch!! Is that a drop in bare shell and take home sprayed shell? No stripping/rebuild? If so I am in the wrong game!!!

    Yep - no stripping required all done - just a little welding round scuttle required.

    I paid £1700 for my Raider to be sprayed back in 2006 (Sh1t is that 9 years ago now...?!) and I stripped that back to a bare shell, and they had to weld in a new scuttle and prep new bumpers/doors etc.

    For my 11 I'm in touch with the same place, and am budgeting about £2000 to again take the bare shell there, but this time there won't be any welding.

    Based on price of your work Steve that £3500 does seem steep - anyone know any decent bodyshops Sheffield way?

    Have you tried The Body Shop, Rutland Road, Sheffield?

    Heard they are very good?
