Re: Scratched passenger door (help!)

Hi, Well after a little paint blending (by yours truly), and a visit from Dent Devils the panel is repaired! I can't recommend Jason from Dent Devils enough! Came when he said he would, didn't cost the earth, and a really nice friendly guy, and "gets it" when it comes to patina repairs. Jason's on 0...

Re: Scratched passenger door (help!)

Thanks,

I'm gonna have to get it sorted, sorry :( I'm all for a patina'd bus but it's because I did it, I have a place lined io in Birmingham to look at it, he's one if the best in the country. So if he can't sort it no one can. If that's the case then yeah will live with it

Re: 13 Window Deluxe - The keeper

Lovely bus! Same as mine, been said before but think you'd regret painting, something about OG paint that tells a story :)
