    Default Wanted - 405 bonnet

    Need a very straight bonnet for my car asap. The painter has requested a better canvas, but am struggling to find anything better than "ok".

    This is holding up the whole job now though, so if anyone has one or even just a lead please let me know.

    Sell the old one back to Dave C - that's where it came from!

    They can't straighten it? I had a quote for $600 to respray both sides and press it straight. Guess it might be cheaper to source a decent graphite colour one.

    It doesn't matter what colour it is, but he is keen to avoid straightening the ripples. It isn't awful by any means, but this guy is a perfectionist and things we will get a better result this way. And it will be cheaper.

    It got reversed into the other night after the st kilda festival too, just to top things off. I had parked it in the basement since the flooding incident, but the window regulator in the golf broke and was stuck down, so the 405 got moved out... and hit within minutes. Still, the guy left a note.

    Had a big result yesterday

    $57 for the bonnet and $28 for the grill. Both very straight and clean, but the bonnet has quite a few stonechips. Still, it takes the urgency out of the respray!
