A Splash O Paint


Recommended Posts

I've been working @ a garage doing some holiday cover the last couple o weeks so had a chance to do a bit to the scoob

Holes in the boot welded up and filled, bonnet changed and sprayed matt black 2 see how it looks ?!, front grill changed to match the lights and new bonnet as well as changing pads for DS2500's and a well deserved oil change

Did most of it myself including the welding and some of the spraying (not the bonnet) and was pleasantley surprised as i've never tackled them before and managed not 2 feck it up !

Still planning a full respray later in the year so thought the black bonnet was worth a shot as its easy enough to change if i didn't like it but i think its kinda cool ;)

No offence but that looks hideous!!

None taken i realise there's many folk who can't understand a scoob without a spoiler etc but each to their own.

I personally hate all the wanna be rally cars stickered to the hilt and just wanted to try something different.

No probs subaru GFX and stupid mudflaps aint my thing either lol :P

The bonnet is just too dull and lifeless without the scoop or bonnet vents, looks like a sport, mind you if you sprayed it the same colour as your car it would be the perfect sleeper lol ;)

Like i said it was just an idea and it needs another coat as its reacted a bit with some of the stonechip putty but whatever colour its gonna stay scoopless and spoilerless as sleeper look is where i'm at.

Looks great, really really good............have you done the boot too?

Nice to see someone following their own path

The boots despoilered and holes filled but still needs painted but leaving it til i do the whole car.

Thanks for all the comments, i just want to try and be a bit different and not as obvious but the clues are there if you know what to look for in the rear view mirror ! ;)

Not sure about the whole matt black idea but certainley not ruling it out as i hate polishing !!! :P

It looks different, and I'm not against it, different is good, its what you like at the end of the day... I like the bonnet like it is, but then I also think that the whole car would look ok too...

Only thing is, matt black is a piggin nightmare to keep... it'd be ruined in no time...
