    Booked for some paint work

    Hi all,
    When I bought my car I was aware of the rather bad paint work that had been made several times to 3 or 4 panels..
    Oh the finish and shine was good enough but the shade was wrong.. Its too pale and annoys me intensely.
    After 3 very positive recommendation from my boss, A neighbour and a friend of a guy local to me I have decided to bite the bullet.
    This spray guy has a brilliant reputation and believe it of not he works out of a cow shed!!! (Yes seriously)
    Anyway I took it to him and he said that the colour (307 pepper Green) is a swine to match up!!
    He suggested I go for a 2 side respray.
    So on the 23rd of this month she is to be "harmonised".. He says he will need her for a week.. That week will drag for me!!

    Remember when I bought the car and I said I had a bargain at only £2,650 for a 58 plate with 73k miles?
    Some of you suspected a write off or something wrong somewhere..
    I am suspecting strongly that I was allowed to buy it sooo cheaply because of the major service / cam belt / battery etc that was needed..
    All in all with everything done the car will stand me at about £5,300 !!

    I think its not a good idea to keep a tally of what one spends on cars !!!
