BulletMagnet & Zoey ***Bonnet Refresh Ver.0.3 added Page 3***

Recommended Posts

Good thread - somehow missed this one - really interesting and car look really nice. V tempted by the lights!

I'll be refurbing my wheels (myself, or at least the lips) soon and will be really chuffed if they look even as remotely good as yours.

So today I went down to RT-Performance for what I will call

 

Bonnet Refresh Ver.0.3

(The way it should have probably done in the first place)

 

First sand down the entire bonnet with a sander, which took about 1-2 hours

(Took me three days by hand using wet and dry)

Then into the booth for masking up

Add the right kind of lacquer using the correct method

Went for a walkabout around Wembley while another layer was added left to bake in the booth.

Came back and this

Very pleased with the outcome :D

 

Many thanks to Taras and Thomas (Thomasz?) for the great job :thumbs:

That looks lovely, top work.

 

I had the pleasure of RT's work a few years ago, and won't hesitate to book in with them for a paint refresh next year :thumbs:

That looks like a million dollars. B)

 

Out of interest, why was the bonnet left on the car and the whole car masked up? Wouldnt it have been quicker to take it off?

Looking real good GMðŸ‘

What's tge deal with those depo lights? Does it retain the xenon? Single or bixenon? What's the output like? Can you adjust the throw to UK spec? Your overall feedback would be appreciated.
