Or thinking of just rolling some paint on Razz What's the best option??

And does anyone know if I have to tell my insurance and everything about the colour change?

DVLA need to know, and you'll need to tell insurance.

City took 6 to do the side and front bumper.

I can get it cheap too...

Sam - I know we will all tell you to just do it but you will make the car worthless if you do. At least at the mo someone might buy it.

Sell/save and buy a civic Very Happy

As the motor trade saying goes "There's a axe wound for every car" Or at least thats what we say in B'ham lol.

So yeh someone will and you have more chance of that happening if its not matt black lol.

But if you keeping it then why not just dont get bored of it lol.

Apparently you can get a fairly good finish in White with rattle cans... I'd be doing that or maybe looking at other satin colours. Should be able to pick up military spec paint cheaply, basically anything with a satin finish will look fairly ok

Bet if you let me loose on it and let me take some stickers off it could look pretty respectable though... Most of it will probably just need a polish!

Sam I will help spray it if you do this.

I think the saxo took around 14-16 cans to do the outside.
I am pretty handy with a rattle can, could do it with the gun but will cost more than if stu gets the cans.

Yes but under that body is a 1.2 with enough power to almost move the car.

I bought 12 x 500ml cans, and I used 6 to get my car like this



I done no prep, apart from sanding down the rough bits and cleaning it with some paint prep cleaner poopoo. 2 months on and I have 2 little bits I need to touch up, but I don't give a f*ck as it's done in 5 mins afro

*Edit* The bonnet was still moist (my fav word) that's why it looks like that What a Face

I used to paint my Minis with a tin of outdoor paint and some small rollers. Give it two coats and it will look fantastic.
