Hi thanks. Did you take everything apart including the windscreen? Quite fancy getting this done but difficult to justify on the car I have in mind...

Luckly my car did not need it taking out, the Barchetta has a panel that comes off next to the wind screen. Everything else came out.

Lights, bumpers, seals etc....

I like it

Makes the car look like brand new, not normally a fan of green cars, but that just suits it perfectly

I really like the colour. Hard top and 3rd brake light are neet.

If I was getting a full respray Id strip as much as possible myself then hand it over. Whould save a lot of hours labour and you only have yourself to blame for broken bits

So true, this is what I did. However on the downside - That light is old and rubbish, New one please, that trim is old and worn, new one please.

£600 on new lights and trim!!!
