    A respirated is too much money and was wondering if anyone had or knew of a replacement bonnet for sale?

    Cheers

    Get any colour and get it sprayed, new ones are not that costly, you will never get a 2nd hand one to match

    Spoke to a bodywork place that said to get a respirated match they’d need to do the whole front of the car and remove the original decals etc.

    Costly and annoying.

    I wonder if you would notice any difference even if the colour doesn't 100% match on a bonnet. The only painted adjacent parts are the top of the wings and on such a small area any difference in tint would be barely noticable and even more so due to the gap between the two parts and the different angles. I have a mondial blue bonnet (172 Cup) on my artic blue (182) and noone ever noticed it was a different hue... Is your paint this much faded that you worry new paint will not match the rest of the car?

    The trophy rolled out the factory in 3 shades of red, add 10+ years to that, and a 2nd hand will never match, and remove what decals lol.. There is non on the front

    Could you PM me with price and postage options please, as mine is stone chipped and may consider new rather than repaint. Given it is Mat's thread he has first dibs though :smile: Thanks

    Scratch that, seen your for sale post on another thread.
