Paint repair in Leicester
Paint repair in Leicester. Sometimes Peter comes up against the limitations of the system and is unable to carry out a repair to the usual standard. In this instance a young lady with a very nice GTi had been visited by a vandal with a key and the area was too big for Peter to repair as he would usually like. In order to try and help Peter offered to carry out a professional improvement. This involved mixing the correct paint colour (LC9Z) and after cleaning out the scratch using a very fine paint brush (a well worn 000) touch in the full length of the scratch a couple of times and baking the paint. Any paint outside of the scratch is then removed and the rest of the slot filled with a coat of lacquer. After baking the repair area is then polished and from most angles, at a normal viewing distance, the repair is almost invisable. Hard to see in the photographs, but it is a lot better than a DIY job and a lot cheaper than having the whole side re-sprayed.
