The surround of my high res brake light is getting a makeover and will be sprayed gloss white along with the bumper aswell.
Just wondered what you all think? I’ll upload photos when I get it back next week. I was offered gloss black but it goes grey after awhile. I think gloss white will make it pop as it’s the Gordini version so will match the white. Hope you’re all well.

I collected car today and they did a wonderful job. I’ll post pictures tomorrow. You don’t see many gloss white bumpers around that’s for sure.

They did offer gloss black but it goes grey and I really dislike black and grey on cars. It’s so boring. A convertible should be brightly coloured and summer loving! 🤪🤪

Excellent with the Gordini stripes.

The white package certainly makes the rear view eye catching.

It make's your vehicle unique and, I am pleased your concept has been brought to life.
Personally I prefer to keep my car as original as possible, maybe its an age thing.
Hope everyone remains healthy and we can get out and about having fun with our cars real soon. R.B.

I like to keep it original as I can that’s why I did the bumper and surround as they’re originally black but go grey after awhile so it’s not original colour anyways when it fades. It’s going in for a spray of the blue now including the brake callipers so it’ll be show room condition once done.

Thanks for all the comments, really appreciate it. Looking forward to getting our freedom back... assuming of course we had it to begin with. 😉

It was ¬£400 and that included having the dent in the bumper trim taken out, and a split in the surround of the high res brake light done aswell. I’ve had some nice comments on it out and about. 🤗
