Yeah it’ll be pretty depressing when the shit weather returns. They’re wrapped and I’ve clear coated over them.

Thanks, I’m 95% happy with it which is fine. Nothing is ever 100% :)

I’m tempted to have it PPF’d but it’s £350 for just the bumper :shock:

No, I’ve seen a bit about them but not tried any yet. Mainly because it’s been winter :)

It’s not too bad. I panel wipe after each stage to remove any oils. I did it earlier and some sanding marks re-appeared that I couldn’t see before so it’ll need going over again with H9 when I get the bumper back on the van. Then it’ll be Koch F6 and I’ll probably finish it off with CarPro Essence.

I think that’s about the going rate for a proper job unfortunately. The thing is, the amount of hours that have gone into getting it where it is now is huge. I know it’ll only get peppered with stone chips if I don’t ppf it which is a killer when you’ve spent so long working on it :? I’ll wait and see what happens work wise before I decide if I can afford that outlay.
