Bugger. Welding repairs should be pretty easy to do at work. Don't get despondent. :)

Incredible. May have cost a fair ol' chunk, but just keep looking at those two photos. Sure you don't fancy an estate as your next project? ;)

It does look fantastic, just goes to show why that was such a popular colour - it's lovely! (might be biased though!)

We need before and after pictures of that too! It will be good to look back on, even if it feels painful now. Let's hope they don't scorch the shiny new paint.

To be honest Mat the holes are very small, one the size of a 50p piece and the other the size one not much bigger, hopefully they will not be anywhere near the new paintjob!!!
