After front end respray.

Got it back today it had the bonnet, grill and bumper sprayed.



The tape can come of tomorrow, they didnt spray the wings and i thought the colour matches pretty damn well, ill get some proper pics next week after a proper wash and t-cut, depending on the weather ofcourse.
