Just park beside a muddy puddle raftl

Don't come any cheaper or dirtier and get about the same finish as some of the resprays on the Wirral.

Sounds like you've been to some of the same spray shops I've used in the past. mad

You basically get what you pay for, so it all depends what you want to do with the car.
If you have a look in Auto Trader you'll find a few places that will do the work for a fixed price, but basically the more work you do yourself the cheaper it'll be. If you can rub the vehicle down and do most of the masking up you'll find that you'll save 's in labour costs.

Most of these places start as a insurance repair garage and just add on this with no skills whatsoever. There's a lot of really bad places on the Wirral!

what sort of colour are you looking at?

(i run a garage and do painting etc. so just trying to get you a cheap price, of course it would be cheapest to have the van already stripped, and prepped, rubbed down etc. but i can do this if you like)

Its non metallic blue,and i would like to keep it this colour, i have tried buffing it but it keeps fading again,so it really needs painting,i dont mind prepping it to keep the price down but if price was right i would just get you to do it,,i dont want it concourse , we only use it about 4 times a year to go camping in, and i just want it presentable,any idea on price,whereabouts is your garage mate..

You need to use a seal followed by regular waxing to stop some paints fading especially red(pink) paint.
