For the clear wrapping I use the same guy who does Peter Saywells cars. I've seen what he can do for a Lamborghini and a Koenigsegg so I trusted him with my MINI

For the repairs I had last year iIused Washington Coach Works. Cant recommend enough.

I just noticed, the 2nd photo is bad quality for some reason!?

So you cant really see how good it worked but its amazing stuff. Their guarantee is so good, if you post before and after photos on their facebook, you get another kit free in any colour you want! So that's the black roof and wing mirrors sorted :

I owe you a beer mate! Was about to order two kits (one for the Mini & the other for the Ibiza) but I'll just get the one now and then pick a freebie up

That is well impressive. Just watched the tutorial for this, shows applying the paint but no mention of the lacquer to seal the paint. This may not last as the base paint is water based. Or is it that the colour already comes mixed with a lacquer combined.
Cheers

Well, it's been a few days and a few wet crappy days. No sign of it coming off. Mind you, I only did a small section of my bumper but still can't see any of the CHIPEX coming off. That was one of my thoughts that there isn't anything to really seal it in. But the colour blends in so well it must already have something in the paint otherwise it would look a little flat and stand out right?
