Will you be fitting one of your GRP rear spoilers ?

I'm interested in how these are turning out as mine has started bubbling.

Hi Kev,
sorry for the late reply, been a bit pre disposed, I have a few issues at work, but the doors were a tiny shade different,I could not tell, the kid that mixed the paint did something wrong with the mix, the spray guy said he was not putting his name to it,rather than me moan in three months time he said he would do the entire car again, so yesterday the car was stripped again, and tonight it was resprayed, they will stick most of it back together as it was there fault, I will go visit on Monday and resume work on it Wednesday, if I do not resolve my work issues I will finish it on Saturday so guys I might need some help..

Re spray it all again :o
But it is the only way to be shore of a even finish in the same colour ;) I hope they have done all the prep properly rather then just spray it over the top!
Did you have to do the restriping off the parts yourself again or did they help you and was it striped back all the way.
It is good that they are redoing it again now rather than 2 or three months later but why cam this places not get it all correct the first time :?

If it is now being rebuilt on next Saturday we should have had a stand at the restoration show and done it their!
Then again when the booking needed to be in for stands I bet you thought it would be finished well before Christmas :facepalm:
