    As promised, off came the rear bumper bar over the weekend for a respray. Had been quoted $600, my cost was $150.

    Attached is the result. Will post additional pdfs when I get to the front and side skirts.

    Would also appreciate any advice on removing the stone guard grey which is on the side skirts. I can't buy Castrol Super Clean here, so need something which is easy...

    They look so much better without the grey....

    My body work guy just rubs back the grey on the sills and primes them. The stuff is a PITA to get off. He has done the last two of my cars and the paint has stuck to it well....

    Nice work, you still did a good job despite it being perfect. Look forward to seeing the skirts done

    PITA?? I was hoping to just dissolve it off leaving base colour underneath - a quick spray of clear and voila!!

    Ah well, some elbow grease is perhaps my only option.

    thanks
