I agree it does look cleaner but the stripes do make it stand out from the crowd or at lease around where I live as most of the VF's here don't have them.Leave as is.....looks much cleaner.
Do you mind if I ask what has been the issue with your paintwork? Just curious as I have the same colour and have been disappointed with the paint, it already has a couple of stone chips on the bonnet with under 1000k on it and I'm really careful with where I drive it and not tailgating.....
So will it be a complete respray? I'm thinking that I may have to go down the same path, eventually.....Stone chips mate, that’s the problem.
I’ve owned a lot of cars and never seen anything like it and for someone who grew up in the far north/west of NSW where gravel roads are the norm that’s saying something.
I never tailgate as I have too much respect for my cars and it’s never been off a sealed road and yet in the first week of owning it I had a number of chips on the bonnet and along the driver’s side.
All I can put it down to is soft paint.
I’ve had it for about 10 months and it now has about 4000k on it and it appears that the chipping has stopped and hence the reason I’m having it resprayed.
In addition to the guard rolling I had done to the rear when I bought it, I’m now also having the rears massaged a little to allow a bit more serious rubber to be fitted and that is part of the respray as well.
How did that go... was it easy as i have been thinking of doing it. .Power mods will be minor as I intend to keep it reasonably stock – an exhaust, OTRCAI & tune is all.
A couple of months ago I had the 4 into 1’s Titanium Ceramic coated ready for installation – the rest of the exhaust is hanging on the wall in the shed waiting for me to find the time to fit it.
I added a Bee Sting Antenna
I removed the Holden badge from the tailgate to smooth out the look
So will it be a complete respray? I'm thinking that I may have to go down the same path, eventually.....
Serious rubber... what size are you going? Looking forward to seeing this!
