    Small claims process is really simple and effective. Tell the gate owner what you expect, show him the quotes, explain that you are a wonderful human being who’s prepared to use the more reasonable quote and request payment in 14 days. When he doesn’t, fill in the small claims forms online and the money will come.

    She's now been dropped off at my mates bodyshop.

    The surgery will go as follows:

    Sand down paint from surrounding areas
    Spray anti rust into the cavity, just to make sure (panel appears to be aluminium)
    Pull the dent out
    stitch weld the hold back together then sand that down
    remould the arch lines if needs with filler
    Paint her up.

    Should be done by end of tomorrow, also dropping the diffuser with him tomorrow when Mac drops it off with me :D!

    Stripes day!

    Dual wide matte-black with a copper flake pinstripe. From BigWormGraphix and fitted by a company here in NL (who do really nice work).

    Whilst there, took the opportunity to have the rear spoiler wrapped in carbon along the silver GT badge and also tinted out the orange reflectors on the front lights.
