    + if you have it wrapped you dont have to declare a colour change on the log book, because its not permanent...

    BUT, wraps have lots of bubbles and can be very poor quality and only last 18 months maybe less before it needs redoing/ replacing and some companies dont garuntee that the paint wont be damaged when removed...

    so imo

    1.1k - 1.6k if you have door shuts done which is a must or it will lokk naf

    OR

    Re-spray which will be a quality job for around 2-3k mark and will last for over 10 years in some cases and the car wont peal if you clip something, it will acctually be white

    much better idea IMO, also if you go to well with a wrap you limit the number of people that will even bother looking at it as wraps are generally not worth the bother and upkeep costs.

    Depending on your budget you don't want to rule out wrapping.. however if you can afford it definitely go for a respray.. last thing you want is a cheap, low quality respray though.

    Go to someone who's got a good reputation and who you've seen their work, you know you'll be happy then

    First reply- Custom Cars.
    It's ran by a bloke called Dips and is a proper body shop/painter, who will be able to do whatever you want, from mild to wild.
