    Spray Painting and Panel Work in the Illawarra?

    Does anyone know anywhere in the Illawarra (lets say between Thirroul & Kiama) that do resprays? All I'm looking to get done, is front & rear HBD bumper lips painted, and preferably fitted.

    Colour choices

    Ok so I'm getting an ss bodykit for my series II acclaim and am stuck on whether to just paint the kit the original colour which is kind of a metalic orangy colour(not to sure of the actual name) or get a full respray in a different colour. I was thinking a black, red or poison ivy green.
