I hope to finish the reassembly before the summer.


Thanks for the information regarding Paintbarn. I'm near Ringwood so they're not too far from me and I'm planning to have my S4 painted in the next 12-18 months. Did they do all the work including preparation and repair, or did you do any yourself?

I did quite a lot myself. I took it back to the gel coat so there was quite a bit of GRP work to do.

They however did more work as there were a few areas that needed more attention and would have resulted in possible problems in the future. They have a good GRP guy.

Thanks for that. That's the approach I want to take as well as I can take the old paint off and I can do some glassfibre work. I've noted them and will contact them when ready to go to discuss the approach to take with them. Well worth knowing, thanks again.
