G'day Hamish, would you be able to do anything about clear coat peeling/cracking on a maroon roof spoiler/wing of a 05 Liberty Wagon?
Cheers.

Oh please kieran, you're only happy to dismiss him because you've already had your car done :)

And road trips are fun ;)

A melbourne or Sydney trip would be nice but I'm not driving again so unless I can get a garage somewhere close to an apartment it would be too hard and expensive for me :(

Porsche 911 in for a pre sale:

Ferrari Spider 355 in for a special stage 2 paint correction which involved removing overspray and restoring some of the black trim

Your work is top class. We used to do work like this in the panelshop I worked in. But found that fewer and fewer people wanted to pay the $$ for the work and time required to achieve the quality finish.
