Don't remember the paint being too bad. Do remember lots of dents in the roof though. Will look amazing with a new coat

It was, one side was quite scratched from a car cover and he repainted the badge panel.

Thanks gents

Car had no rust prior to going in but had so many dents and each panel was a slightly different colour. The paint shop have confirmed that all panels are original but it has had a few bumps over the years.

Spent a small fortune on this car already purchasing new trim for going on after the respray and fixing any mechanical issues as well as tidying up and backdating the engine bay and interior to original spec.

Kind regards

Make sure the tailgate, side glass, doors, wings and front valance are all removed to be painted for best final results. Mirrors can be broken down too. Avoids unsightly over spray and hard masking edges which always let resprays down if not taken care of
