i sorta followed the guide in the tutorials section. except i used fibreglass matting for a fair bit of it instead of fibreglass filler.

didnt pay anything mate, as you might have guessed i do everything myself, inc spraying

as for removing the glue, i used a toffee wheel, which it like a rubber you attach to a drill, cleans it off easily, infact thats what its designed for, lol. most people just spend hours with tcut and white spirit.

my bro has a red corsa, it wouldnt go back red so he is respraying it himself too.

get some t-cut out and do all the doors, should bring most of it back, it worked on mine when i did it.

oh then use some red colour polish, that stuff is brilliant.

well it was going in for a colour change n e way casue it was that rainbow blue colour, which is pretty nasty i though um dont see why you couldnt just get the boot part were uve primed re-sprayed though

plus providing the place you go to a shoudlnt think it would be to much to get sprayed my full re-spray was only 300 should ask around see what prices are
